British rock band Coldplay wrote a new, country-style song this week. The twist? It wasn't a single, nor will it be on a future album. 

The band dedicated the song to Houston:

After getting news that their Houston date would be canceled due to the Hurricane Harvey, Coldplay wrote the song — to be performed just once at their Miami concert. 

The dedication moved Houston natives:

Lead singer Chris Martin told the crowd:

This is because 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.

Houston, we're all thinking of you.
