New Music from Coldplay – “Midnight”

Coldplay just released a new single entitled “Midnight.”

There was no anticipation machine ramp up to this release, that I know of at least. Which is sort of interesting. It, of course, begs the question is there an album coming soon? The excellent Mylo Xyloto was released in 2011, which was three years after Viva La Vida. If their record cycle is three years long, then we should be due for a new LP. That’s exciting.

As far as “Midnight” goes, I’ve only listened to it once. Immediate reactions are positive. It fits Coldplay’s recent attempts of tapping into different genres of music for their album. It even feels like an evolution of the electronic dub step inspired “Paradise.”

Here’s hoping for a whole new album sooner rather than later.
