You just knew that we were going to be holding the new Coldplay video over ’til midnight, didn’t you? Are we really THAT predictable?
Suffice to say, the UK supergroup uploaded the brand new clip to the net early yesterday morning Australian time and in that less than 24 hour period, it’s been viewed in excess of 1.1 million times, no doubt solidifying the band’s reputation as one of the hottest outfits on the planet.
The song itself is new – and recorded for their upcoming sixth studio album, but is based around a track penned by producer Jon Hopkins more than a decade ago. It’s a gorgeous, atmospheric echoed soundscape resplendent with layered, hushed vocals is complemented perfectly by an almost ghostly infra-red clip filmed in the wilds.
Though the song is not really single material, we presume it’s the band’s way of announcing to the world that they’re back. And if ‘Midnight’ is anything to go by, we can’t wait for what else the forthcoming witching hours may bring from the Coldplay camp.
