Coldplay’s ‘Midnight’ Surprises Fans, Hints at Upcoming Album and New Sound

Coldplay took fans by surprise with their unheralded release of a new song, ‘Midnight,’ on Feb. 25.

The only notice given by the British band was a morning tweet that “something new” would be taking place at midnight in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia.

The song has a heavily synthesized, electronic feel, and frontman Chris Martin evokes uncharacteristically unintelligible vocals. It has since been compared with music by American indie band Bon Iver.

Directed by Mary Wigmore, the accompanying black-and-white negative-filtered music video sees the band wander a forest, with interspersing shots of a fox and city scape. 

The song’s release suggests an upcoming studio album, Coldplay’s sixth since Mylo Xyloto (2011), and the new sound hints at the musical direction the band is heading.

    It’s pretty weird, but I definitely like it. I do wonder what he’s singing, though.

    Love this so much! Very chill!
