Warning Sign - You are about to be taken back to 10 years ago, when British magazine, NME revealed the supposed tracklisting for Coldplay's third album, 'X&Y' and gave us a written preview of each song!

 

 

Speculation over Coldplay’s forthcoming album has increased, with the emergence of a possible tracklisting.

 

 

Although the album ‘X&Y’ is due out on June 6 and singer Chris Martin has told NME.COM he’s still tinkering with the record, The Sun have revealed a possible eleven song tracklist for the album.

 

 

‘X&Y’ could include:

 

 

‘Square One’

‘What If’

‘White Shadows’

‘Fix You’

‘X&Y’

‘Speed Of Sound’

‘A Message’

‘Low’

‘Let’s Talk’

‘Swallowed In The Sea’

‘Twisted Logic’

 

 

As previously reported by NME.COM, <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/x10y-coldplay-debut-four-new-xy-songs-at-la-comeback-show/" title="[X10Y] Coldplay debut four new ‘X&Y’ songs at LA comeback show" target="_blank">the band made their live return on March 12 in Los Angeles</a>, where songs, ‘Square One’, ‘White Shadows’, ‘A Message’ and ‘What If’ all received their live debuts.

1. SQUARE ONE

 

 

Cert to open live shows. Heavy feel with lots of guitars and haunting

lyrics. Chris sings: “Is there anybody out there who is lost and lonely

too?”

 

 

2. WHAT IF

 

 

Best song on the album and one of the band’s best ever. Chris’s soft

voice and piano are in full force. When the anticipated guitar sound

kicks in, reminiscent of Yellow, the hair on my neck stood on end. A

Sergeant Pepper ending.

 

 

3. WHITE SHADOWS:

 

 

Gospel inspired with lots of organ and a very U2 sounding riff. Chris

was listening to reggae great Jimmy Cliff when he wrote this.

 

 

4. FIX YOU:

 

 

Church organ start reminded me of Procol Harum’s 1967 great A Whiter

Shade of Pale. Cello and strings lead to an epic end to the five minute

track.

 

 

5. X&Y:

 

 

Heavily influenced by Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and Strawberry

Fields from the Beatles. Starts with moving, soft vocals and strings.

 

 

6. SPEED OF SOUND:

 

 

The first single. The opening piano reminded me of Clocks. Drummer Will

shines and guitarist Jon adds riffs that Edge would be proud of. Very

catchy.

 

 

7. A MESSAGE:

 

 

Acoustic guitar and no doubt which Hollywood actress the songs’s

message is meant for. Lyrics include the line: “I’m nothing without you, I’m

nothing on my own.”

 

 

8. LOW:

 

 

Big, festival sound. Will be great live with Guy’s thumping bass and

loud mix of guitars, synth and drums. Massive ending makes it

spine-tingling.

 

 

9. LET’S TALK:

 

 

Opens with a melody borrowed from Kraftwerk, though Coldplay do it with

guitars, not synths. For me, this is one of the album’s highlights.

It’s got No1 single written all over it. Vocal reminded me of The Killers.

 

 

10. SWALLOWED IN THE SEA:

 

 

This could easily be a massive single with its haunting lyrics,

apparently about the loss of a loved one. Chris’s vocals are accompanied by a

cello before the rest of the band kick in for a rousing finish. A

touching, beautiful song.

 

 

11. TWISTED LOGIC:

 

 

A sample of Coldplay when they are angry. The lyrics are about what

might happen to the world in the future if we don’t look after our planet –

or the people that live on it.

Which song sounds the best so far? :)
