Coldplay are currently busy touring the world, but that doesn’t mean the foursome are waiting around to release new music. The English band dropped their latest EP, Kaleidoscope, earlier this month and have teamed up once again with producer Brian Eno for their new tracks.
Having previously worked with Eno on 2008’s Viva La Vida and 2011’s Mylo Xyloto, Coldplay have once again found magic in the studio with the famed producer. While previous releases from the new EP have shown a return to the ambient, dramatic tracks that filled up the group’s 2008 and 2011 discs, their latest single is sticking closer to Coldplay’s recent move towards more radio-friendly pop tracks.
“Miracles” and it’s accompanying lyric video was released today, with the latest track featuring rapper Big Sean. The collaboration marks the second instance of experimenting with a new genre, this time hip hop, with Coldplay dipping their toes in the EDM world for their Chainsmokers collaboration “Something Like This,” which also appears on Kaleidoscope.
Bringing old photos to life, “Miracles” name checks a number of important historical figures, including Muhammad Ali, Mother Theresa, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Joan of Arc. The inspiring tracks takes a trip through history to encourage the listener to believe in themselves, and continue pushing for human rights.
Kaleidoscope is now digitally available, with fans able to purchase the album on CD or vinyl starting August 4. The five-song EP will includes the previously released “All I Can Think About Is You,” as well as a remix of the band’s Chainsmokers duet, “Something Just Like This” and their latest release, “ALIENS.”
