Published Feb 25, 2014When we woke up this morning, we had no idea that we'd be hearing a new single from Coldplay, but the arena-filling British pop band have unexpectedly rolled out a new music video for their new song "Midnight."
The song is a low-key number that mixes frontman Chris Martin's falsetto coos with Bon Iver-style vocal processing and a quiet, electronic-tinged arrangement. The minimalism gradually swells towards something more epically cinematic, and it sounds like it might turn into a typical Coldplay anthem, but it never does.
The accompanying video shows the band members exploring a forest, with negative black and white shots that make them appear like ghosts. It was directed by Mary Wingmore.
