🪐 MY UNIVERSE | COLDPLAY X BTS | OUT SEPTEMBER 14TH 🛰

Recommended Posts

I don't think the album would sound like A Rush of Blood to the Head, well maybe in the sense of Atlas. So basically that older style feeling but really keeping the upbeat poppy nature which they started to develop.

 

Plus to be honest I'd rather it sound more like Viva La Vida. But different straws.

 

What you're describing is the result of them keeping it in-house again. Honestly, I think LP6 will be a nice complement to VLV and MX. With the previous two LPs being so experimental and adventurous, I can see LP6 as being more of a return to the core of Coldplay-- just emotional and heartfelt tunes. I think LP6 will still have some outrageous and odd sounds, but I think LP6 will be more straightforward than the last two.

With the end of the Xylobands, it seems the brains of the LP6 tour production (which I'm sure is already in planning stages) might be reflecting the style of the album. Less MX-flashy, but probably a good blend of rock and some VLV-alternative. I just really hope they keep the confetti around, because the feeling I get when that stuff flies out of the cannons is a fleeting euphoria!

How do you know that they will not use the xylobands again?

 

Because Jason tweeted this yesterday: looking like the Xyloband and Coldplay Journey is over !!! time move on

Q. Hi Oracle!

I have a question. Do Coldplay use xylobands only in MX tour or they will use them in next shows as the part of every Coldplay show?

 

 

The Oracle replies:

 

There's a clue in their name - Xylobands. They were brought in for the Mylo Xyloto tour as the perfect compliment. The MX tour was very vibrant, full of colour and reflected the look of the album which as you probably know was heavily influenced by graffiti and its fluorescent / dayglo feel.

I always assumed they would be retired once the tour was over as then the band would be moving into a new phase.

 

But Jason disabled his account and that Oracle answer has been deleted.

They're reached that level where I don't see Coldplay not headlining Glastonbury anymore (it would be like U2 performing but not headlining..would be awkward for everybody), and the organisers said the headliners have never performed at Glasto :\

 

After all, Coldplay weren't at Glasto for Viva. It's highly possible they won't be for LP6.

 

Don't get me wrong though, I'd definitely love it!! :laugh3:

 

Radiohead did the secret set a couple of years back. They've headlined in the past. Not an impossibility!

Spooky! :shocked2:

Why do you think those were deleted?

And did such thing happened before?

I'm thinking that there are currently thinking about the next tour and whether they'd like to have the xylobands again or not. They're probably still unsure, otherwise there wouldn't be so much confusion and deleted things.

I don't have a clue.

I know some Oracle answers have been slightly edited in the past but that's about it.

Two minutes ago, "Don't panic" was played on a German radio station. After the song, the moderator said, "And very soon, in 2014, there are new Coldplay songs. As soon as something is happening, you hear it on our radio station."

 

I know that there are not any news, but it's so nice to hear something like this on the radio. :)

So,um, a fan met Coldplay at the Bakery yesterday right before they left for their gig, and um, got a rather interesting insight from Will...I'm just gonna leave this here in case you haven't read the story yet...

He seemed very excited about LP6 and told us the album is going very well but they don't want to rush it and there are some lovely acoustic songs on it.

As long as I would love those acoustic songs they say, I would also like some powerful songs. But I mean really powerful songs with claw. 50/50 would be nice, which would be translated maybe in 6 acoustic songs and 6 powerful songs. Or 5 and 7, or 5 and 6, but not more or less than that. There has to be some stability, a really good balance.

They've obviously written these ones as acoustic because they work best as introverted reflections, but what about doing something a bit different with them?

 

Below is one of my songs of the year. The bass is really prominent all the way through, and that's something that worked on Paradise. The little electronic noises are fantastic too, so why not get Jon Hopkins in for something like that?

And of course this is just one song that does something different to what could be an acoustic track. Look at Massive Attack, Belle and Sebastian, even Gorillaz: there really is no need to stick to the same formula.

 

 

 

By the way, I'm sorry I'm not on here as much. It's not that I don't care, it's that I'm currently working two jobs. This is like, the only thread I comment on anymore, given that I'm not up to date with stuff going on in the lounge. And that I really don't like two or three people there.

 

I just really like this thread, and all you guys, and it's a nice past-time to discuss LP6. So I don't want to be forgotten from discussion :( haha

"Lovely acoustic songs" sounds amazing :heart: but as someone previously said, I hope that there is a balance and we get some other nice sounds too.

 

Anything from the guys will be cool.....I'm just hoping this time they can come to Mexico....We missed them this year :(

I agree. And if it's not too much to ask for, maybe even the xylobands too? :wacko: That's the thing I was most looking forward to from the last tour and it still pains me that I didn't get to experience it :bigcry:
