Mike Edel shares cover of Coldplay’s “Don’t Panic”

Canadian indie singer-songwriter Mike Edel has unveiled his take on Coldplay’s “Don’t Panic”, the first in a series of four covers to come from the acclaimed songwriter. An apt message for the times, Edel has created a mellow yet hooky and folk version of this early Coldplay classic.

“Parachutes was one of my formative albums, and I really like the idea of covering a song that is underrated,” says Edel. “‘Don’t Panic’ feels like this kind of song, and it just kept coming back to me through this Pandemic era and has been a comfort to say the least.”

This release comes on the heels of his latest full-length album, En Masse. His series of contemplative, mid-tempo covers is a nod to Edel’s singer-songwriter lean whereas En Masse embraced co-writing, collaboration, intuition, and was decidedly upbeat.
