Singer Chris Martin recounts some advice he received from his father, crooning over sparkling synths and a funky electric guitar line. “Yeah in you I see someone special/ You’ve got fire in your eyes,” he sings. “When you realize, you’ll go further then we’ve ever gone/ Just turn it on.”
In his guest verse, Big Sean recalls the obstacles he faced while chasing his hip-hop dreams – like overcoming the “prison” of financial debt and the expectation of a traditional career path. “Maybe I could be the new Ali of music, probably/ Instead of doing it just as a hobby like these boys told me to,” he raps.
The five-track Kaleidoscope – out July 14th digitally and August 4th physically – also features “Hypnotised,” “All I Can Think About Is You,” the Brian Eno collaboration “Aliens” and a remix of their collaborative hit with the Chainsmokers, “Something Just Like This.”
