Italian disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder has remixed Coldplay's "Midnight," the new single off of Ghost Stories, out March 19th through Parlophone Records.
The original version is a stripped-down ballad with Chris Martin singing in a Justin Vernon-like falsetto over ambient synth chords. Moroder's remix, however, is a huge production with an added thumping beat, turning this mellow ballad into a dance romp. He completely transforms the track by the 2:52 mark by abandoning the original vocals and adding his own through a vocoder. Moroder gives the song a sense of urgency, as if this was the song to dance to while waiting for the world to end. Stream it above, or buy the track on iTunes. You can hear the original track here on Zumic.
