Coldplay has returned to the spotlight with the upcoming release of their sixth studio album Ghost Stories. They have already released three singles from the album, “Magic”, “Midnight” and “A Sky Full of Stars”, giving us a tantalizing taste of what is to come.
In particular, “Magic”, which was released on March 3, has since gained rapid popularity. Some of this popularity may be due to the unexpectedly awesome video clip. The clip features Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi (think Memoirs of a Geisha; and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and is well worth a watch.
But let’s not get sidetracked. Because amidst the anticipation and high expectations, a number of remixes and covers of the singles have been released, including one from Torontonian Shaun Frank. The cover, which Frank describes as ‘Progressive House’, received over 200,000 listens in just over a week.
At first, it sounds like your average electronic remix. However, it is indeed a cover, Frank having recorded 100% of the vocals and instrumentals. The cover comes as part of his “Club Covers” series. Be sure to check it out on soundcloud quickly as you might be able a free download.
Hometown: Toronto, Canada.
Upcoming album: Nothing on the horizon for Shaun Frank, but Coldplay’s upcoming Ghost Stories is set to be released 16 May.
Sounds like: Fedde Le Grand’s remix of Coldplay’s “Paradise”
Say what? Shaun Frank alleges that he was ‘rejected’ by his own mother on instagram.
