Coldplay has just pulled a Beyonce, releasing a new track without notice. “Midnight” debuted on the band’s official youtube page, as well as their website today. This has quickly led to some internet gos about whether a new album is on the horizon.
“Midnight” sees the band embracing a more modern sound, with Martin sounding like a melancholic robot. The track sounds like something James Blake would leave on the cutting room floor, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Hopefully, it’s a grower. The band’s last album, Mylo Xyloto, was released in 2011.
