Tiësto issues second all-time Coldplay spin with ‘Higher Power’ remix
In a move that added to an already stacked New Music Friday, Tiësto dropped a surprise remix of Coldplay’s “Higher Power,” adding to his catalog of reworks spanning songs from Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Halsey, and Miley Cyrus, to name a few. Keen listeners, however, will know that this isn’t Tiësto’s first dance with Coldplay; in 2012, he put a club touch on “Paradise.” Fast forward to 2021, and Tiësto has flexed his re-imaginative finesse on a Coldplay issue again, adding a notable and welcome uptick in energy on his interpretation of the summer anthem, which arrives hot on the heels of ZHU’s fellow remix.
Ripe for the main stage, the “Higher Power” remix comes just in time for the much-anticipated return of summer festival season. Stream the spin below.
