Coldplay Pull A Beyoncé, Release Surprise Track 'Midnight' - Listen Now!
The boys are back with a new single ahead of a rumoured sixth album...
Coldplay singer Chris Martin has taken a lead from friend Beyoncé by releasing a surprise track online at midnight.
Last night the British band – whose frontman is married to Oscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow – released new track Midnight as the clocks struck 12 last night.
In December, Beyoncé – without any warning or publicity – released a full album on iTunes along with accompanying music videos. The surprise release crashed the online retailer as it struggled to cope with demand.
Midnight, a down-tempo, electro-pop track, marks a departure for the alt-rockers while the video features the foursome through the lens of a night-vision camera walking through a forest, presumably at midnight.
The music vid has already clocked up well over a million views in less than 24 hours.
The surprise release comes ahead of a long-rumoured sixth album. A spokesman for the band confirmed the band are: "Working on new music, coming soon".
Coldplay’s last single, Atlas, was featured as the lead single on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
