New Music: Coldplay "Paradise"
Deep organ keys,accompanied by the beautiful humming of violins, dropping into a synth heavy beat, greets us into the walkway of Coldplay's new single "Paradise" from their highly anticipated fifth album "Mylo Xyloto" due October 24th.
The song, which I view as a "spirited painting", is one that has many repetitive (almost limerick in aabb form) lyrics, this being because in my opinion the object of "Paradise" is seen differently through everyone's eyes, but to actually see "Paradise" in another person's eyes is difficult to convey to the lyrical mental, hence the repetitive lyrics: "When she was just a girl/ She expected the world/ but it flew away from her reach/,along with the many references to "She" to get the point across. Simple, but oh so brilliant! This wonderful one shows that the long wait for Coldplay's new album didn't seem that long after all.
In other Coldplay news, the band is expected to perform at the iHeart music festival in Las Vegas Sept 23rd & 24th. Other acts include Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Steven Tyler,Carrie Underwood,Jane's Addiction, John Mayer Nicki Minaj, and many more.
