New Coldplay song “Atlas” leaks

by

After two (long) years since Mylo Xyloto’s release, Coldplay has recorded a new single, this time for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. This marks the first time ever that the Grammy-winning British rock band has recorded an original song for a motion picture.

The new track, “Atlas,” was first introduced when Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin posted the handwritten lyrics on Twitter. The track was then pushed back from its original August 26th release and leaked earlier today.

Many fans already claim that “Atlas” is more reminiscent of Coldplay’s earlier albums than their latest album Mylo Xyloto. The track is a very melodic and mysterious piano ballad, and hits a climax when Chris sings (romantically, as always) “Carry your world / I’ll carry your world” in the chorus.

The track will officially be available for purchase via iTunes on Friday, September 6 (except for the UK, which is set for a Sunday, September 8 release).

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will release worldwide on November 22.
