So out of nowhere, Coldplay’s gonna be releasing a new album called Ghost Stories in May. And they released a new song called Magic. I listened to it and I thought it was alright. It was nice and pleasant but to be honest, it really was not that amazing. And when they released the song Midnight about a week ago, I honestly did not like it. I thought that it was great for them to make an experimental, ambient, almost half Sigur Ros/Bon Iver styled song. But I didn’t really like it. I’m getting a feel that they’re going in a newer direction for this album. And so far, the new songs have been underwhelming. Maybe when I hear the album as a whole, it wouldn’t be a problem. And maybe it’ll take me time to like their new album. Cause some of the songs on Mylo Xyloto took me a while to like. Like I remember that I hated Princess of China at first but that song turned out to be one of my favorite songs on that album.
But aside from that, I’m looking forward to hearing their new album cause they are one of my favorite bands.
