Following the release of Coldplay‘s single “Magic,” it’s easy to forget that the actual first taste we all got of the band’s upcoming album Ghost Stories (out May 6) was the experimental “Midnight,” which surfaced back in February. But if you need your memory jarred on just how moody the latter is, check out the remix by electronic music maestro Giorgio Moroder, which runs nearly nine minutes long.
Here Moroder lays a hypnotic click-click-click disco beat below the Kid A-esque atmosphere of the track, and the whole thing eventually builds into a tornado of majestic synths and menacing piano chords. And, of course, no modern day remix by Giorgio Moroder would be complete without the addition of his own ghostly robot vocals.
