This marks the band's first dance track, being outlined as an EDM track with house influences.
The track opens as a piano ballad, with progressive house-influenced electronic music that plays out in between verses. According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com, the song follows a chord progression
The track has been described as "[falling] in line with the synth-heavy soundscapes of 'Midnight', but with more danceable flavor”.
The song's repeating chord sequence was inspired by the work of American pop singer Katy Perry.
"A Sky Full of Stars" was first played in closed-audience performances. The band, when performing the song before the release of the "A Sky Full of Stars" single, would routinely ask the audience not to record their performance of the song, in an attempt to prevent the song from leaking ahead of its release. Despite their intentions, the song was leaked after their performance of the song during the opening night of their Ghost Stories Promotional Tour at E-Werk in Cologne, Germany on 25 April 2014. The song was premiered live on the 29 April 2014 airing of BBC Two music television show Later... with Jools Holland. The band then performed the song on Saturday Night Live on 3 May 2014. The band also performed the song on The Graham Norton Show, in the UK, on 30 May 2014.
The song was also played during the 3-Point Shootout of the 2015 NBA All-Star Game weekend.
