That would be kind of funny if they released a song about spheres. In an Apparatjik interview, it was mentioned that all four members of the band, including Guy, hated spheres. That's why they're so obsessed with cubes.
Wait, what? I'm very out of the loop on this, lol. Why do they hate spheres?

"Music of the Spheres" sound very cool, but it also could have been the alternative title of Everyday Life Guy referred to in a recent interview.

That said, it sounds like they've been doing Everyday Life sessions with LP9 sessions, so maybe there's still a chance it is "Music of the Spheres" ??

Idk, it seems unlikely they'd announce their next album in a lyric book.... and also, that's a pretty alternative sounding title for a record, and I think we all know the album will likely be more pop-driven, or at least more tourable. But Mylo Xyloto was a alternative sounding title but the record wasn't, so...
To be fair, before this era I would have said it was unlikely they would announce an album via personal letters to fans, but I see your point. Even when working on GS / AHFOD in tandem, the two eras never overlapped with one another. That being said, why leave in the reference if they wound up scrapping that idea? Other than an EP or the next album, I'm not sure what could be "important" enough to be given a two-page spread in the album booklet.

Were there ever any references to Zero Theory after it became X&Y?

In this interview, Magne says:
"All four members of Apparatjik have had very bad experiences with spheres when they were children. This was one of the reasons they were most drawn to each other. It is too painful to go into the details, it brings back a lot of bad memories unfortunately. Can we move on now please? We are much more comfortable with cubes generally. We quite like hexagonal prisms too."

Probably seemed unlikely they'd announce Everydaylife in the classified section of newspapers all over the world but they still did :D

Expect the unexpected i say!

Coldplay aren't touring this album, it's looking like they'll only play a few shows...

If they want to keep the momentum up, I dare say LP9 will be out mid next year, pretty much like the GS/AHFOD structure.
As for the 2024 thing... That's super intriguing.
I too believe the LP9 will be released around the usual time of year they release albums... I actually think we will get LP9 in June/July and they will headline a few festivals before a world tour in late 2020/2021. Keep surprising us Coldplay!

I'm guessing an autumn 2020 release at the earliest, maybe October... supposedly they had festival appearances lined up but everything was canceled apart from Global Citizen in September. I think that'd give them a little more time to finish the album.

Perhaps the licence plate code is not a date, or simply the year 2024... Like, a reference to the future ?
On Twiter, I Ran Away guessed "Fast Forward to Future"

Also I anticipate a retro-futuristic style for that era, especially given the font and the ancient inspiration...

If that was the intent, why not use a date thats much further ahead? Its such a strange year to choose; not super close or far.

Yeah, it's definitely weird.... So 2024 could mean anything else, it does not have to be a date...

A quick search on Wikipedia and I did not find anything interesting on the number 2024, but on the 2024 I did find that there is a total solar eclipse expected to happen on April 8 2024..... Seems like a stretch, and quite possibly a coincidence but.... Everyday Life was also announced via an eclipse date....
edit : although eclipses aren't exactly a rarity so that does seem like a stretch lmao

The title, the art with the planets and DNA etc all give me STRONG X&Y vibes (or rather, X&Ybes)
But then again Orphans was supposed to be on the next record, so I'm probably clowning myself here thinking of futurism and space rock.

WHAT? Did he say that in the interview?
Chris was asked if he was happy with his albums, and he said, "Yes, all of them, except for X&Y." He said that he'd remake it on its 20th anniversary. It would be the way he originally wanted it to be, but the rest of the band didn't know anything about it yet. He's talking right now if you want to listen.

Like I’d said before, this Music of the Spheres might just be the album to set that record straight

Not remaking. He said 're-editing'. So, probably just re-arrange the tracklist a bit. I hope he was joking though.
Otherwise I'd like to see an expanded edition of the early albums for their anniversaries in the coming years, including studio outtakes.

That Music of the Spheres billboard kind of makes me think of the Talk music video...

Oooh... perhaps a re-recorded version? Maybe something with stripped down versions of the songs like what they've done with most of them live? Maybe an electronic version of Talk that sounds more like what they played on the Viva tour?

Who knows, though... maybe it'd just be some remastered tracks and remixes for the songs they are most dissatisfied with.

I would love that! Talk is a favorite of mine. That electronic version of Talk/GPASUYF sounded so good.
