Musical Discovery: ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ by Coldplay

First came the release of Midnight, then Magic, and now, in a collaboration with Avicii, Coldplay’s latest song from their new album, Ghost Stories, is entitled A Sky Fall of Stars.

Despite many people claiming that the track, along with Midnight, deviates from the rock basis of the band, I disagree and applaud the band’s decision to explore new musical styles.

If anything, Avicii may be a DJ, but he also knows how to showcase the vocal talents of those singing the song. On this occasion, Avicii correctly produces a song perfect to Martin’s vocals. As well as that, the song isn’t particularly dance-centred. Instead, upbeat piano melodies and soulful vocals change the theme entirely.

Overall, another great song from the upcoming album. When it is released in the middle of May, it is likely to have some great hits on the album!
