What do we have here? Coldplay has unveiled a new song titled “Midnight” and, by the sound of it, Chris Martin has officially filed away U2’s October, opting instead for Bon Iver’s 2011 self-titled album. Over Eno-inspired landscapes, the UK outfit sound primed for a coffee house over Wembley Arena. It’s a new jacket for Martin, that’s for sure, though it’s not like he couldn’t use a new one (link to that weird jacket).
Might it be for a Justin Vernon tribute album — or, the band’s sixth studio album? While we wait for details, check out the corresponding video, directed by Mary Wigmore, below.
