I know Coldplay gets a hard time from plenty of people these days, but I love them. I always have (even though I fell off for a few albums), but after hitting up a show on the Mylo Xyloto tour at a stadium in Sunderland last summer, I was fully back on board. It was freezing cold and pouring down with rain so we were soaked to the bone all day, but that almost made it better. They are so good, so everyone shut up (unless you agree – then by all means, keep talking! lolz).
In any case, Coldplay have unveiled a preview of their new track ‘Atlas’, which will be part of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack – the first time they’ve ever written a song specially for a movie. Woo hoo.
Catching Fire‘s director Francis Lawrence had this to say about Coldplay’s involvement:
“I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film,” director Francis Lawrence recently said of Coldplay’s involvement in the film.
“Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can’t wait to share this music with audiences around the world.”
It’s a bit slow, but I like it well enough, and I can see it going well with the movie. What do you think?
