„Midnight“ was the first appetizer for Coldplay’s sixth studio album „Ghost Stories“ which will be out on May 19th. As you remember: the track popped up as a free download in late February and surprised with the mixture of elegant silence and heavy use of electronic sounds. It seems that Coldplay has even more surprises in store for us as they just released a Giorgio Moroder Remix of the track.
As you can imagine, Moroder (who was also involved in Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” album) does his job as Italian Disco legend, adding more Disco based sounds, Piano elements, vocoder vocals and arrangements tricks to it. To be honest: this sounds like an old Pet Shop Boys record in some parts. Have a listen:
The mix is already available at iTunes. Go grab it here!
