Fresh off the Catching Fire soundtrack, here’s a charmingly eerie, gorgeously minimalist new jam from Coldplay that’s not a Battles cover (we wish!), “Atlas.” A simple, often-discordant piano line takes center stage then hides behind massive, swelling strings building to a massive sunrise of a sound, all of it accompanied by Chris Martin’s musings on the Atlas of Greek mythology, who supported the world on his shoulders. We can’t wait to see where this song’ll fit in the movie – it’d make a great end credits soundtrack. You’ll have no trouble putting it on repeat in the meantime.
