Kaleidoscope EP

Recommended Posts

^^Agreed. That does make sense. Still confusing though. These are technically B-sides? Yet the excitement around them feels more like this is a new album or project. With GS Target Deluxe edition, there was like no lead up or excitement around those extra tracks, but now Coldplay seems to be really excited about writing new music. Still, I am confused because EP's never are all that profitable anyways, unless there are a BUNCH of new tracks. I don't know anybody with 10 bucks on itunes who decides to buy an EP with 5 tracks instead of an album with 12 tracks (not including us, of course). So if they are pushing it back for commercial reasons they must have faith it will make $$$$.

 

I love the wait too, but man, I've been speculating longer about this EP than AHFOD it feels like! Which could lead to disappointment if the 2 unheard tracks are crappy.

 

I agree that announcing the EP artwork along with the App or even a teaser of the tracks would be a good move on their part to stir some excitement up in the music media.

 

And by the way. I had a dream last night that I woke up and saw this on Facebook. Went something just like this:

 

"EP OUT NEXT WEEK: We're sorry for the delay. We had so much fun making Kaleidoscope EP that we wanted to add some more tracks that we've been mastering for a long time! We hope you enjoy"

 

1. All I Can Think About Is You

2. Something Just Like This (Rock Version)

3. Miracles 2

4. A.L.I.E.N.S. (feat. Brian Eno)

5. Car Kids

6. Spanish Rain

7. Famous Old Painters

8. Hypnotised

 

AHFOD Deluxe Edition--Bonus Tracks out in August

1. A Head Full Of Dreams (Demo)

2. Hymn For The Weekend (Acoustic)

3. Legends (Adventure Of A Lifetime Demo)

4. Army of One (Acoustic)

5. Up & Up (Live at Glastonbury)

EDIT: Sorry for the Fan Fiction Splurge.

 

Oh man! I so want this to be true. But more likely, I've got two words. HIDDEN TRACKS!

This makes sence, however, as we know Coldplay, they usually don't make any sense in what they do. E.g. not playing Fun while Tove Lo is opening for you, playing In My Place and Don't Panic as 'request songs', doing these big shows with all the light effects while the sun is still up until ten! Therefore I wouldn't get my hopes up to high for extra EP songs. (I would really love it though and I think we deserve it as wel hehe)

 

I wrote this on reddit the other day:

I could be wrong here, but I genuinely believe the EP was pushed back for two reasons: 1. Dua Lipa released her album on June 2. I somehow picture the boys agreeing to push the Kaleidoscope release back so Dua Lipa had less competition on release day, given Chris collaborated with her. A kind gesture perhaps. 2. Secondly I think maybe they are assessing their options with a dual release or extended EP with live in Tokyo tracks included.

 

Just my two cents.

 

That being said the release of this app and the fact that everything points to a release two weeks from this Friday/weekend makes me think an official statement may be coming thu/fri this week. I mean it makes sense to release details one or two weeks out from the release, unless their planning on dropping it with no lead up. That being said this app makes me think the live version of hypnotised is coming to their shows pretty soon/hence more ramp up of KEP marketing. All said and done, I actually love the tense feeling of waiting for new music. I think the fact that they changed the date and never listed a collab on the original track release just goes to show the EP was never final. Hoping for a few more songs <3

I don't know if i can do this and if I'm not allowed to do this please delete my post, but I just created a Coldplay meme Facebook page and as a forum user I think you'll like it. Now it's pretty raw, but I just created it today. If you like my idea please get a look at my page and leave a like! ;) thanks.

If this winds up morphing into some pop-rock fusion song like Adventure of a Lifetime did, I swear to God . . . :joy:

 

I think I'm just going to listen to this 12-second bass loop for the rest of the day

Its animation and taste is like Foster The People's second album. I hope it came out as a single or this videos continue coming like AHFOD preview clips.

Also i just noticed that the animation is about evolve. It first starts with a cell an turns into a fish a crocodile a monkey and a human. It matches with lyrics some points ex. "Fish fell out of water". And also at the end that "Yeah" from Chris. Perfect.

^ Also symbolic of Coldplay's sound evolution throughout the years

 

EDIT: Maybe Kaleidoscope really will feature songs that encompass the sounds from different eras
