Have any of you guys ever heard of Boyce Avenue, they're huge fans of Coldplay and an extremely popular band on YouTube. They recently did a cover of A Sky Full of Stars and it's pretty impressive. Check it out:[video=youtube;c6XxjY-1e3M]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6XxjY-1e3M[/video]

A sky full of stars was my favorite song from Ghost Stories but I was always hopeful that they would release another version that was acoustic or more stripped down like these covers. I really like the original but a calmer version would be awesome, especially for those that didn't like the released version. Now that the Ghost Stories era is coming to a close im not sure if ill ever hear that from them..

Hi guys, so I posted the link to a cover of ASFOS a few days ago but no one really gave any feedback. So I was thinking posting it here would get it more attention and feedback. Here's the link.

If covers of this song have proved anything, it is that this is one of Coldplay's best songs that never was. The chords the melody, the meaning! It was all there. Oh man. I just spent an hour watching ASFOS covers on youtube and was blown away by the more instrumental/heavy covers.

I THINK WE SHOULD PETITION FOR A REDO!!!! WE WANT AN EARLIER ROCKIER DEMO OF THIS SONG!!!!!!!!

Now I'm curious, can you recommend a particularly good (rocky) one ?

Although I love the current version of the song, I want to hear a rocky version of it.
