Coldplay are no stranger to electronic music. Cooperations with Swedish House Mafia or legendary electronic music producer Jon Hopkins (who helped producing their last longplayer „Mylo Xyloto“) prove that they included electronic elements into their music several times before. But not as apparent as this time!

Coldplay released their new song „Midnight“ without any announcenemt on Wednesday night. The single is as electronic and ambient as you can get, putting Chris Martin’s emotional voice greatly into the soft synthesizer world they created with producer Jon Hopkins. This is definitely not radio friendly, but a great piece of art! Expect this to be bootlegged, re-edited and transformed to Dance music a million times in the weeks to come!!!

Have a listen:

What do you think about this? In my eyes, this is big music!!!
