Listen: Coldplay’s new song “A Sky Full Of Stars”, produced by Avicii

on April 29, 2014, 2:37pm

Ahead of its May 19th release, Coldplay have already previewed more than half of their new album, Ghost Stories. So far, we’ve heard five out of the upcoming record’s nine offerings, including “Midnight”, “Magic”, “Oceans”, “Another’s Arms” and “Always In My Head”. Today, the band unveils yet another new song, “A Sky Full Of Stars”.

Enlisting EDM heavyweight Avicii to serve as producer, the song starts off as a heartfelt piano ballad before flourishes of pounding electronics take over the chorus. While their previous singles such as “Magic” recalled their earlier catalog, this new track falls in line with the synth-heavy soundscapes of “Midnight”, but with more danceable flavor. Listen in below.

Ghost Stories arrives May 19th via Parlophone Records.
