It’s been a long time coming since Coldplay has released a song of their own, granted there was a teaser of new material via “Catching Fire OST”, but like any and all Coldplay fanatics, one would hope for news of new material of original Coldplay. The boys announced yesterday that “something new at 0:00 Ulaanbaatar #midnight PH” on their Facebook page, meaning an exclusive premier of their new video/song for the country of Germany. With eerie images of forest, foxes, and familiar faces; all in black and white photo negatives, you can just imagine ones imagination would go haywire. So without further ado, here is the new song from one of my all time favourites:
To say that “Midnight” is different would be an understatement, though Coldplay has hardly shy’d away from being a little different, quirky, and flat out weird. They’re a band of few words, hardly in the spotlight for the wrong reason, and they let their music speak for itself. Coldplay is a mystery to many, and though their popularity and fandom are easy targets for the public to brand them as sellouts, Coldplay merely shrugs it off to play the music they love, fandom or not. I hope you enjoy “Midnight” as much as I did, here’s to new Coldplay in 2014.
