Depending on what you got into during yesterday's festivities, lethargy may be a keyword in your Monday morning recovery. Easter (or not-so Easter) feasts aside, this is just the track to get your day started on the right foot. Dance legend Giorgio Moroder, who has seen a return to the spotlight due to his work on Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, reworks "Midnight" from Coldplay's forthcoming album Ghost Stories. Set to drop May 19th off Parlophone Records, the 9-track release follows three years after the British alternative rock group delivered Mylo Xyloto featuring the hits "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" and "Princess of China" with Rihanna.
Moroder transforms the contemplative "Midnight" into a shimmering dance number. Like the original, the remix definitely takes its time to build, layering shifting synth melodies over progressive drum work and adding new vocals to the track. Pre-order Coldplay's Ghost Stories today to get an immediate download of "Midnight" and "Magic", and enjoy the Moroder remix below.
