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

LP7- "A Head Full Of Dreams"


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I talked to the person and they basically gave me a yellow light. I can't speak in super detail about the song and definitely not in detail about the contents of the music video . I'm really sorry but I want to honor him/her. I can though tell you what it "sounds like" and little bit of elements that are involved in the song (apologies if you know most of it) - I thought it was an upbeat song with soaring chorus part (at least musically) and piano hooks. The drums in the song reminded me of their recent albums i.e. more mechanical drums than older era. All in all, I thought it was a solid pop rock song that you can dance to and should well on charts.

 

Really sorry if you got your hopes up about the song and music video details after what I said before.

 

Thanks for the info! Sounds promising!

 

I wonder if they gave you a yellow light (not green light) to reveal just few details because the song is about to be released :D

Hopefully the song and video is out soon so that I can discuss more about my experience - the person I talked to also knew a bit about the lyrics which surprised me cos I didn't hear them properly but he/she knew the chorus.

Did he/she like the lyrics?

The person shared the chorus with me - which..umm.. sounds like Coldplay and then I put it on my mental map (Sherlock!) of the music I heard - I remembered Chris loudly singing somewhat similar during the shoot, so I'm convinced that the person is correct. I don't think the person had the chance to listen to all of it but I didn't get the chance to ask whether they liked it (I am predicting they would say yes cos they aren't super critical of band's new music)

Does the song sound more like ghost stories, mx or something entirely different?

I would say it was more pop than rock. Jonny didn't seem to dominate the entire song and had fillers in between (and one prominent part? - unsure of this)

 

I would say more miracles than MX or GS

The album could be out soon. They will be headliners next year at Glastonbury.

Quote from the article:

Coldplay will bring the 2016 Glasto weekend to a close with a Sunday night Pyramid Stage set including songs from new album A Head Full Of Dreams and their back catalogue.

Im definitely crying for sadness if we get something similar like Miracles.

But thats just me.

 

Less Jonny, electronic drums,more like Miracles . ..kind of nightmare to me.

Just wait until you hear the song and/or the album. Then, freak out. Or not.

^^Seconded that notion. We need to hear the track before judging.

 

First of all, Miracles was close to being a really great song but didn't quite get there. We also don't know if mechanical drums means electronic or just a simple tight rhythm section. HLH has very mechanical drums if you ask me, because they are so repetitive. Remember this could be something completely new!

 

A lot of us predicted GS to sound like Atlas but that wasn't fully the case. When new Coldplay stuff emerges you can only slightly compare it to something else even if it is a completely different song! THink ASFOS. Folks who heard that before all of us said, and I am paraphrasing "it has the most amazing chorus and a huge rock piano hook and Jonny plays a big part!"

 

That of course only turned out to be partially true. The true nature of the song none of us can really predict. If it is pop, so be it, but we don't know if that will mean instrumentally. It is a Coldplay single so yeah, it is going to have a huge chorus and catchy hook!

I dont think its about you to tell me what to do, thx.

"Any news " you remember?

I wasn't telling you what to do ffs. Jeez! Don't freak out and start 'fights' about insignificant things...again. I was simply saying you shouldn't make assumptions without actually hearing the song. That's it!

Besides, I've already apologized for that 'any news' thing. But I guess everything I do stays in some sort of Coldplaying criminal record. Beware!

I dont know where youre implying any "fight ".

Anyway, and again :

 

IF it is in the same direction like Miracles, I wont like it because its too bland for my taste of music.

Thats it, too

 

;)

'Fight', 'fuss', whatever you want to call it.

 

I was just advising you. Now I see my advice wasn't welcome. That's ok. Life goes on [emoji23]

But my own point of view doesnt depend on your advice. Saket told us its more like Miracles. I said if its really like Miracles, I definitely wont like it. We simply got different opinions, I just dont like everything they do.

 

Others will say "great, I love Miracles ". Deal, its subjective. If he had said "prepare for a Violet Hill 2.0" i would have been all over the moon, subjective again. Thats what music stands for.

Good one haha.. Well this song is starting to sound... Super basic, more basic than what the pictures of the shoot promised. But we'll see what we get and hopefully sooner than we expect, let it leak!

I really don't want to start yet another Mortal Kombat here, so let's friendly call it quits.

I'm still confident about the song and extremely excited to know its lyrical content. Hope is all we have left!
