Video: Chris Martin Performing Atlas At The Hollywood Film Awards
You may recall, last week we told you that Atlas by Coldplay was to receive The Hollywood Song Award at the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards. Now a video has emerged of Chris Martin performing the song from the Catching Fire companion soundtrack with solo piano accompaniment. The lead singer joked that this was their bid for London hosting The 2020 Hunger Games. And Martin’s deadpan humour continued to be in full swing when it was time to accept the award:
“We worked hard for this song. We tried to do method songwriting. I went to live in the woods for 6 months with nothing but a bow and arrow and a piano. We should also thank Jennifer Lawrence. But everything else I did – the hair, I really got in to character and put myself in the position of a young lady whose dresses keep catching on fire. And that’s what we came up with.”
