🌙 COLDPLAY ANNOUNCE MOON MUSIC OUT OCTOBER 4TH 🎵

The Official "Famous Old Painters" Thread


Pseudonym

Recommended Posts

This thread is probably the first ever completely dedicated to a song that might never be released. I just want to know other people's opinions on this potential song. Personally, when I first heard of it, it immediately became the song I was most looking forward to hearing. Prospekt once said they were recording it with big band instruments and that it had a Spanish theme to it. I just someday want to be able to hear it cuz it was hyped up for a while.

I think it's Viva la Vida now, at least I hope it is! I want to hear it!

 

Either that, or VLV will end up sounding exactly as FOP was described, with horns and the words "Famous Old Painters" sung somewhere, and then FOP will be announced as a b-side for the 3rd or 4th single making us all explode for varying reasons.

i wouldn't be surprised if it is the same song with a different name. didn't we hear somewhere that someone was pissed off that they had to change the artwork due to tracklisting changes? maybe that was what changed...

 

on the other hand, didn't we establish that we could see 'viva la vida' on that first list of possible songs for LP4 - which i believe was released before they announced 'famous old painters' - which was scribbled out (suggesting that it was always the title)?

It was a huge surprise when the old site gave us a new website desing with the words "famous new painters" written across the header, and then the song isn't even on the album. Where did it go? Maybe Eno "accidentally" erased it (the way he almost "accidentally" erased "where the streets have no name" :rolleyes:).
