Coldplay shocked their followers yesterday by releasing a snippet of 'All I Can Think About is You' and finally releasing the track at midnight!. Besides being played in Tokyo recently, the studio version of the song had not yet been heard and was long anticipated. The song, which builds from a rolling bassline to a hypnotic climax has received praise from all, some even stating it is their best song in years. The lyric video directed by I Saw John First begins with an animation referring to evolution and then begins to rise out of the ocean and into space. It is possibly the most artistic Coldplay Video in a while!
However, with good news, comes a small setback. Once again, Kaleidoscope EP has been delayed until July 14th. We did finally get a completed tracklist which features a collaboration with Big Sean, 'A L I E N S' written by Brian Eno and a live version of Something Just Like This recorded in Tokyo in April! Check out the full tracklist below along with a statement from the band:
1. All I Can Think About Is You
2. Miracles (Someone Special) – Coldplay & Big Sean
3. A L I E N S
4. Something Just Like This (Tokyo Remix) – Coldplay & The Chainsmokers
"The EP was produced by Rik Simpson with Daniel Green and Bill Rahko and features a new live version of Coldplay’s hit collaboration with The Chainsmokers, Something Just Like This, recorded in Tokyo in April. It also includes Miracles (Someone Special), a collaboration with Detroit rapper Big Sean. Another new song, A L I E N S, was written by Brian Eno, and co-produced by Eno and Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, Kings Of Leon)."
