It doesn’t seem like it (as in credited artists) but we’ve learned that there are producers like Timbaland and possibly vocals from some other chick who I’ve forgotten what her name is

 

Natacha Atlas?

 

And usually Coldplay doesn't credit collabs...

Part of me still hopes that isn’t the cover... just cause I’ve liked the usual center piece as part of their era theme... but i mostly think it is the real one

 

I think the album will be packed like Ghost Stories and AHFOD, with a box above the actual CD having the sun-and-moon. Or maybe the sun-and-moon art will be an alternative cover (like in MX)

 

I'm terrible sorry about my English, but I'm not being able to straight-up express what I mean above; I hope you can understand.

So we now have a countdown... only issue is that the world premiere of the single is going to be right when one of my university classes starts (12:30 pm local time). So I'm gonna have to wait in agony until class is over to listen.

 

I don't think it's a cover album either, but maybe - dare I say it ? Maybe their track titles are just a little uninspired/lazy this time.

Some of the titles, like Daddy and Cry Cry Cry do come off as uninspired. But at least there's Èko... that one is quite unique. Judging from titles alone, that's the song I'm most curious about.

 

If there's any artist featured on the album who would y'all like to see?

I really want to see Gary Lightbody on a Coldplay album. But if it has to be someone younger and more relevant to modern pop, maybe it should be someone like Alessia Cara. After all, she supported the AHFOD tour.

 

Hi everyone!

 

Nice to once again feel the excitement of a new release.

 

Do you guys think they could release music videos for all the songs in the new album?

Assuming there are indeed 16 songs on the album... I don't think it's likely that they'd make 16 different music videos. They usually only make maybe 5 of them per era. Even if they double that amount because it's a double album, it'd still be real time consuming for them... who knows, though?

Well the music videos could be animated, like Ink and Aliens.

Here's my question

We all know 12 videos were updated on YouTube (208 to 220) then why are there 16 songs in leaked tracklist?

 

something doesn't add up.

 

I'm thinking 4 of those titles won't be on the list

 

Or maybe (sadly) 4 of the songs will be short transitional songs... like MMIX or A Hopeful Transmission, so they aren't including them in videos..? Guess we'll find out when the official track-listing is out with the song times listed.

I want to see something like the Ink video again! It was really interesting how they stuck with a choose-your-own-adventure format and then used the most popular choices from fans to piece together the official video. They should try that kind of format again, it'd be a cool way to engage with the fans.

I'm hoping some of those videos are teaser clips, like whatever it is that's supposedly being prepped for the website according to the code that was unearthed.

Guys, I'm doing some Photoshop work and trying to find some proof why the album art is real/fake. I believe it's real but I'm open to every possibility.

 

Here's an exact gif comparing the both sides of the album. Jonny's face is VERY different

EDIT: I'm convinced the album art is real.

As someone mentioned before. This could be the insert.

 

Sorry but I really really want them to continue the tradition of them not being on the cover. Haha

Maybe the 8 songs with B/W thumbnails are songs that they choose to perform live along with songs on the new album?

Which Matt are you talking about? Matt Miller’s (Roadie 42) Instagram account is still public - @millerworld.

I know about R42's account but he barely would post such Jon-related stuff, I was about Matt McGinn's instagram account! It was really once public, he didn't post there for a very long time, didn't actually have any related to Coldplay photos (except one about the letter) but back in last year's December he posted Jon's Les Paul and then a photo of Sunny and himself in the studio.

I'm all for them playing ALIENS and LiT II. It annoyed me quite a bit when they never played the former in 2017, and the latter has been gone for too long at this point. I wish I could have seen it on the Viva tour.

Hopefully my professor understands. One does not simply deprive me of new Coldplay and get away with it. :joy:

I think it just makes it more believable. Maybe Jonny looks "faked", but it's very clear that Chris' face is shot on the same spot, but a different time.

 

It's a style choice that she made to make it more subtle that the face expressions are different.

No, that's too much in the nature of Jonny posing like that, so surely not faked, also, think, the light was shifted there a bit

The light isn't shifted, it's just that the dust/scratches filter on the top is slightly different than on the bottom.

 

The poses are exactly the same, only the heads are photoshopped (top is photoshopped, bottom is original). Trust me on this.

 

(When I mean Photoshopped, I don't mean fake, because the artist probably used Photoshop to create this).

I wonder if this album was built off all of the scrapped material around the Viva/Mylo eras?

 

For those who don't know, Coldplay was working on a follow up (LP5) to Viva that was originally super acoustic and indie sounding (see original Charlie Brown in AHFOD Film), but they decided they'd rather do something bigger, louder, and more colorful. This is potentially where Car Kids, ALIENS, Arabesque, Drunks and Guns, and other tracks were scrapped. You also have amazing demos like

,

l,
.

 

It's possible they knew they were going to keep those demos and put them into a big package eventually since they didn't fit into the more mainstream album cycles. And maybe here we are??? Then again, it could all be new material and those demos above could have been incorporated into releases already (wedding bells and U.F.O or Atlas?).

 

EDIT: And maybe that'd make sense for the "last 100 years or therabouts" because from Chris' perspective these songs have existed for a super long time but just haven't had a home? Or maybe the album will be time-travelly and each song will be inspired by a different decade of music.

 

I think you're on to something with that last sentence ... "last 100 years or thereabouts" really could equate to a cutting room floor album.

"They said “tell everyone we comin back and to make them listen to our entire discography”"

 

8 black and white thumbnail on YT, right ? 8 tracks per album on Amazon also...

 

If this albums are 2 anothers version of coldplay famous old titles, the tour will be probabely small like "ghost storie tour".... And that can confirm the daily mirror article.

 

Other thing: the marketing campaign is not really big, it is mainly for coldplay fans

Yes, though, the rest of the bodies except the heads is exactly the same, that's true, I understood the point about fake now. That's very much in artist's (either photographer's or Pilar's) vein here

Like everyone else here, I am so excited they are releasing some music and a double album is just a bonus. I can't wait until Friday morning, Melbourne time.

What if the countdown ends with something like a short film set in 1919 where they explain the new projet? I think the band lack too much in this marketing process...

As much as I want new music (like right now, please) I would be down for a 10-minute mini documentary where the band announce the album, explain their though process etc.

Interesting idea. I would really like to see that. I also desperately want the single so, why not both? lol

I was thinking about the correlation between the following three things.....

 

1. The chance of the band possibly using tracks from previous records (grayed out videos on YT/Spotify)

 

2. 1919 (100 years)

 

3. Experimental album/full of surprises portion of Chris's speech during the last show of the AHFOD tour.

 

I can see this double album containing both new songs and 're-worked' songs utilizing all eras of music from the past 100 years.... The 'new' songs will

also sound not very modern... basically they will sound "classic", utilizing instruments used back in the day. I think the band using the old typewriter for the letter they sent out is a clue. Maybe ALL songs on both CDs will contain parts from the grayed out songs but I HOPE NOT. I would like to hear some brand new songs.

 

I rarely post on here but this just randomly came to my mind and I can see the band doing something like this.... now days where "everything is possible" I won't be too mad if I am right but I hope we get 16-18 new songs.. Keep in mind they are coming out with a more conventional/mainstream album next year so we all have to accept the fact that the sky is the limit for LP8...
