    • With all due respect, what you’re predicting about their future goes against their press for Everyday Life. They repeatedly said they did not care how well or poorly the album did. They’ve passed the days where they’re making music to ‘please’ their label. This past era was not created in hopes of sparking a big success; it was purposefully tuned down to a polarizing, abstract degree.    Coldplay is doing whatever they want now. I have no doubt in my mind they’re going to still accidentally make hits, but that’s much different from producing an entire album with pop in mind. 
    • I’m way, way behind on all of this, so excuse the curiosity: When was Rescue Street recently mentioned? I thought I wasn’t out of the loop, but I digress.
    • So the exciting news on the Discord is that the track "Rescue St." is basically confirmed. It was originally on the tracklist for Mylo Xyloto but Chris said in an interview it had an acapella bridge that sounded like crap so they cut it. Contextually that conversation was about experimenting with Brian Eno, so always good to hear of more tracks that have his influence!  BUT NOW -- we've seen in an official Coldplay social media post an acoustic guitar labeled "Rescue St." implying that Chris was recently working on the song.  Personally, I'm excited to hear anything that originated during the Viva/MX eras. So far, Arabesque and ALIENS have been some of their best newer material, so I'm optimistic. But also, acapella sounds potentially more pop-oriented, and some of the pop during the MX era wasn't my cup of tea... so we'll see.
    • Something I just noticed, I think Jonny has had a new song added to his ASCAP repertory. It's now at 235 songs, when it used to be 234 last week. I'm not sure what was added though. Does anyone have a list of the old songs?
    • Yeah. So we will never know for sure if "Juliet telephoned in by a region" or "by ouija" :P
