British band Coldplay surprised fans when they dropped a music video for the mysterious new single, “Midnight”, on Tuesday February 25th. The song itself has frontman Chris Martin’s vocals distorted, sounding a lot like Bon Iver, which means that the group could have been spinning For Emma, Forever Ago during the recording process.
Taken from their upcoming soon-to-be-titled sixth studio album, the music video for “Midnight” is also very mysterious. Featuring silhouettes of each band member in muted tones as they saunter through a forest, this is a bit of a departure for Coldplay, who are well-known for their piano-driven brand of rock n’ roll.
Despite the mild departure in their sound, fans are loving the new song from Coldplay, even if the lyrics are extremely difficult to make out.
