Coldplay has gone country with their new song,”Houston.” The rock band wrote the song in response to the massive devastation in Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and they performed it at their show in Miami on August 28.

Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin told the crowd they would only perform “Houston” this one time.

He says, “We all grew up loving country music, and of course that’s kind of what we think of when we go to Texas. So, if you’ll bear with us, this is a new song and we’ll never play this again. It’s a once off and it’s called ‘Houston.’ We’re gonna sing it in Miami for everybody here, and we’re gonna send it over there to everyone who missed the show.”

Chris is referring to Coldplay’s postponed show in Houston last week. They were forced to reschedule that date due to Hurricane Harvey, but no makeup date has been set at this time.

The Houston Chronicle has called for Chris to sing “Houston” once more when they come back and play that makeup show.
