Coldplay return with a larger than life soundtrack single.
Pick up a Coldplay album at any good music store and you know you’ve made a wise investment. Nothing is ever as it seems on the first listen of a Coldplay record and their musical prowess expands ever more so with this, their latest effort.
With what’s arguably the most philosophical and existential single the British band has ever spawned, Coldplay make thier contribution to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack with a ballad titled “Atlas”. Part of the song’s success lies in the minimalist approach Coldplay introduced with Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends and perfected in Mylo Xyloto. Earlier this year, we heard the band contemplating whether or not to reveal details of their new music and of course they opted for the latter. This new single reduces all the suspense to water under the bridge.
