I spent my high school days listening to the radio, waiting for the newest songs to premiere. However, these days everything has become digital and most of my new music comes from the Internet or friend’s recommendations.
While I love being able to access music so easily, I do sometimes feel nostalgic for the excitement of hearing a new song on the radio for the first time. I’ll admit, I’m not really a fan of the music that is played on the radio now days, but I do listen to on my ten minute drive in the morning to the train station and this morning I was treated to a song premiere – Coldplay’s new single, Magic.
I’ve been a Coldplay fan since high school and Magic veers away from the radio-friendly, stadium sound that they’ve perfected. It’s introspective, soothing and beautiful. As soon as I heard just half of the song, I was already on iTunes, purchasing the single. It’s been on repeat ever since.
