Coldplay – “Atlas”

So we spent the first half of the week talking about Coldplay’s old music, and now for the back end, we’ve got some new Coldplay music. “Atlas” was recorded by the band for the upcoming film Catching Fire, the second installment in the Hunger Games trilogy. It’s the first new music from Coldplay since the 2011 LP Mylo Xyloto. It’s a swooning, appropriately cinematic ballad, which means … it sounds like Coldplay. As it should! Man, you can downvote away, but I’ll ride for some Coldplay stuff. I really like Viva La Vida! Heck, I’ll ride for Hunger Games, too. The first movie was pretty good! I saw it in the theater! J-Law! Anyway, you can check the track below; the flick is out 11/22.
