"Drink for me. drink for me " or "so high ,so high"

with all those kind indian fellows around. Just no.

 

But to be fair to coldplay though, its not about getting drunk and doing drugs though, its about being drunk in life and high in love :)

Metaphor at its core. :D

I'm sure that for LP8 they will do something experimental and revolutionary again, just like with Viva. Possibly they will reclute Brian Eno again or maybe Jon Hopkins. I think that because I feel that it's what they planned from beginning to end, and it's a thing to do after every 3 albums. So they had Parachutes, AROBTTH and X&Y, then Viva and after that Mylo Xyloto, Ghost Stories and AHFOD = 3 albums as a trilogy, then an album that breaks the pattern and then another trilogy. So I guess and hope that AHFOD will be followed by another album in the vein of Viva.

I so loved your reaction! LOL And I so dislike that song haha

 

Thankfully for me , as much as he might love it, I dont think Chris has it in him to ever write a tune (or lack thereof) like that! haha

 

Oh and if he ever does, I see Will nostrils flare and Guy leaving the room *LOL*

That would be some masterplan that I don't think they have dreamed up.

This!

 

I hope they reunite with Jon Hopkins and Brian Eno. Instead of Stargate, put a real producer there like Jamie xx:D

Is anyone else perplexed by the lack of explanation for some of this new era's themes?? I feel like with Viva and MX and GS we got really elaborate explanations for the artwork that made a whole lot of sense considering those eras' overall goals and stories. Now with AHFOD there is just randomness everywhere....which also plays out in the lyrics and song styles.

 

There is Indian inspiration everywhere (though barely any in the music). There are crazy shapes and colors. There are moon phases, the flower of life, cut outs of their childhoods, Kaleidiscopes...

 

I mean, all these things individually are really neat and kind of fit together aesthetically....but sonically or thematically? The album isn't psychedelic enough for Kaleidoscopes, nor does it ever mention the complexity of the flower of life. It feels like the band just said: alright that is pretty cool. Let's just toss that on there. I mean really? If the video for Hymn for the Weekend is that India shoot then that will be disturbing if anything--Coldplay running around with cute children singing "Feeling so drunk and high" haha. That would be laughable.

I agree that there isn't any explanation or interview with Pilar. But I think some of those cut outs relate with some of the lyrics. Chris talk about the moon, the universe, birds, pyramids, I can't remember exactly the songs where he mentions those words but the title Kaleidoscope is reflected on the artwork. Hope they explain it soon, so we don't start trying to guess the meaning behind it.

I was thinking the same thing earlier!

To start off, I have no clue where the Indian influence is coming from because, apart from the AOAL riff, I don't hear any influence in the music.

I sort of understand the Flower of Life, but there has still been no explanation from the band whatsoever about the artwork. The only time they mentioned it was when saying that Guy liked putting together collages.

I'm starting to kind of make sense of the album cover. The toucans obviously are birds. The stars represent the "shooting across the sky." And the spaceships represent some lyric from XMTS that I can't remember (or be bothered to look up haha) at the moment.

MX's art all made sense in terms of the whole concept album thing, and GS's art made sense when looking at the themes of that album.

But this? I'm not sure...perhaps it will all be more clear after a few more interviews or music videos.

You are truly the great mediator of facts in this forum lol

 

hahaha - I was lucky that I knew this sometime back. Well, the video will have some Indian festivals in it. (Kites, boats, Holi etc) - I think it should be a good video. I don't know how I feel about Chris dancing with slum kids singing "I'm feeling so high, so high" - I want to think of it as metaphorical.

 

Also, look out for me in one of the 360 degree shots. If they are good enough, they should edit it - if they are not, I am in a Coldplay music video! Also, if they are reading this and now going to the final edit to remove me out, well.. damn it.

The indian theme I believe they said it was because India is so colourful and they were inspired by the colours or something along those lines :) The Flower of Life is sort of mentioned in Up&Up (and flower), so on the cover to me it just means all the colours of life, or a life full of vibrancy and color. The black and white photos I think they mentioned were their families, so I think it fits with the theme of including in the album all the people who mean something in their life. I agree with your interpretations of the stars and the birds hehe :)

I really hope that video is for AHFOD (song), otherwise I will be ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATED AND DISAPPOINTED. I can already see it as the last single from this era, an amazing way to finish it.

The video is for HFTW. Saket confirmed it. It will be devastating!
