Coldplay may have warned fans a few years back that their seventh studio album, A Head Full of Dreams, may be their final, but it doesn’t look like the group is going to let that warning come to life any time soon. On Thursday (March 2), the British band celebrated vocalist Chris Martin’s 40th birthday by releasing another new song from their upcoming Kaleidoscope EP. The new track is titled “Hypnotised.” The six-minute, Mary Wigmore-directed lyric video is beautiful and matches the mellowness of the new track. Watch the lyric video for the new song above.
“Hypnotised” marks the second “single” from the band’s upcoming EP. Earlier this week, they debuted another song titled “Something Just Like This” which features EDM-superstars, The Chainsmokers. “Hypnotised” and “Something Just Like This” are two of the five tracks featured on Kaleidoscope which is set to hit stores on June 2 through Parlophone Records. Kaleidoscope will reportedly be the sister release to A Head Full of Dreams.
In support of the new EP, the band is currently in the middle of their lengthy “A Head Full of Dreams” world tour. Earlier this week, it was announced that the four-piece would be one of four acts set to hit the stage for the inaugural Global Citizen Festival Hamburg. Coldplay will join the Chainsmokers, Ellie Goulding, and Herbert Grönemeyer on the bill for the one-day event set to take place on July 6.
