Coldplay & Avicii’s ‘A Sky Full of Stars’

Coldplay’s latest single have unleashed A Sky Full Of Stars, an unexpected collaboration with EDM star, Avicii. The track further highlights the synth-heavy, electronic soundscapes first previewed on the album’s other single Midnight. The song begins with Chris Martin crooning along to a heartfelt piano ballad before Avicii’s signature fist-pumping electronics envelop the chorus.

The band also announced a scavenger hunt — lyrics from the upcoming “Ghost Stories” handwritten by Chris Martin having been hidden in ghost story books in nine libraries across the world. One set of lyrics even contains a “Golden Ticket” for a free trip to see Coldplay at Royal Albert Hall on July 1. The band is tweeting out clues to the locations of the enveloped lyrics, using the hashtag #lyricshunt. (Some of the lyrics have already been found, including the one with the Golden Ticket). “Ghost Stories” comes out on May 19.
