As Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin opens up more to the media, the band does the same. Coldplay is out with another peek at their upcoming record Ghost Stories Tuesday (April 29), an Avicii-assisted jam titled “A Sky Full Of Stars.”
According to a recent interview with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe in which the singer discussed his divorce from Gwyneth Paltrow for the first time, Martin penned the band’s upcoming record with love in mind — opening yourself up to love and whatever it may bring.
“I think in life everyone needs to be broken in some way,” Martin said. “I think everyone in their life goes through challenges, whether it’s love or money, kids, or illness … You have to really not run away from that stuff. Life throws these colorful challenges at you.”
So far, many of the offerings off of Ghost Stories have been rather hushed and, well, haunted — and “A Sky Full Of Stars” is no different.
Part twinkly piano ballad, part sky-reaching EDM track, it’s the perfect complement to previously released jams “Midnight,” “Magic,” “Oceans,” “Another’s Arms” and “Always In My Head.”
Lie down, look at the stars, and listen up.
The track will be available for download on Saturday with the record dropping on May 19.
