“‘Day ‘n’ Nite,’ I loved when it came out, and I still love love love it,” Martin said when detailing the band’s participation in the ongoing Spotify Singles series. “This is the first time I think that we’ve really taken proper time to record a cover, because in my head I could hear a version of it quite different from the original, that hopefully just reinforces what a brilliant song it is. One way or another I hope that anyone listening will just think, ‘Wow, Kid Cudi is amazing.’”

Ahead of the “Day ‘n’ Nite” cover’s release, Cudi shouted out “the WIZARD” Chris Martin and called the band’s take on his Man on the Moon: The End of Day single a “tasty” endeavor.
