One of the real highlights of Coldplay‘s chart-busting Ghost Stories LP is the band’s unexpected EDM moment “A Sky Full Of Stars”. Produced by Swedish DJ Avicii, the piano-centric, house-tinged anthem recently became the rockers’ third top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and received a suitably over-the-top visual filmed on the streets of Sydney.
The original version is already pretty majestic but Coldplay’s soaring anthem is taken to the next level by Avicii’s sprawling remix (officially referred to as his edit). The “Wake Me Up” hitmaker has a quirk for overhauling his own tracks, so he it’s not surprising that he tinkered with this production. The song now has an atmospheric introduction and an even more epic build-up to the chorus. Listen after the jump.
