"Hypnotised" is a song by British rock band Coldplay from their EP Kaleidoscope EP (2017). The song was released ahead of the EP on 2 March 2017, by Parlophone as an excerpt from Kaleidoscope EP instead of as a standalone single.[3] The song was written by all four members of Coldplay, and produced by Rik Simpson and Bill Rahko.[4][5][6]

In June 2017, producer Brian Eno created an app available on iOS and Android devices to be played alongside the song to enhance it.[7]

Music video[edit]

Alongside the release of the song, a lyric video directed by Mary Wigmore was released.[8]
