The new song sounds like a blend of Bon Iver, Imogen Heap and a slow club song.

Watch: Coldplay Drops New Song/Video 'Midnight'

In this article…

While Chris Martin still remains my top suspect for being the Yellow King, he and his fellow mates in Coldplay surprisingly dropped some new music on the world today. The song is "Midnight" and it also came with a music video too. The video sees the band walking through a forest through the filter of X-Ray vision, and it almost looks like the band dropped some acid and were able to get video of their visions. There is some borderline human centipede stuff going down midway through the video.

The song itself is much different than anything we've heard from Coldplay in recent years. Under the Radar Mag likened the influence to Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, and while I definitely hear that too, I can clearly hear some Imogen Heap as far as the high harmonies go. The surrounding music is very minimalist, and when it does begin to build in the middle and towards the end, it's still very subdued and understated. The track just sort of flows, and at five minutes long it still doesn't even feel like it ever reaches that length. It's a nice song and a wonderful surprise from the group.

Check out the track below and let us know what you think of Coldplay's new sound in the comments section.
