I would think that with Wonders of the World/Power of the People, POTP would be an interlude.

 

Though I’m hoping they’ll do a VLV style double track like Yes/CSC.

I'm surprised that the f-word isn't censored here as on another forum where I'm also active.^^

 

When I started out on this forum I thought it was really strict so I made sure not to swear or act out of order of any kind. TBH I'm kind of surprised this forum doesn't censor words like that either, although I'm also glad.

 

Like others, I'd never heard of Jacob before but after listening to him for three minutes in this interview, I LOVE his voice. Excited to see what he brings to the album!

 

Read some of these other people's comments for him. He's a REALLY talented artist who has a very good knowledge of chord and harmony, music theory etc. Don't get too hyped but he's even experimented with microtonality before, and I will be blown the frick away if there's a Coldplay song featuring that (however unlikely that is, but you never know, he IS Jacob Collier after all)

 

Thought he looked familiar

 

WHAT?!!?!!?! I've literally watched this video twice and REALLY like that he's able to explain all these concepts at each level. I always found it very interesting. NOW I know where my memory of the name came from. I NEVER would have guessed it came from this video, I could have sworn I heard some of his music before! THANK YOU!

 

Though the entire album sounds like it should be experimental in some sense.

 

It's "experimental" and "less experimental"

 

I cannot express enough to you all how much of a genuine, in every sense of the word, genius he is. His knowledge of music is unparalleled, his grasp on harmony is unlike anything I've ever seen, and he knows every scale, in every key, in every mode that has ever existed.... And he can just sing it/play it straight up like it's nothing.

 

For real? Like every single key that's ever existed and every mode and chord? Knows if OFF HAND?

 

Any videos I can watch on this? I knew he was good. But I didn't know he was THAT good.

 

According to someone on the subreddit there'll be a Japanese deluxe edition with a bonus track called "Flags".

 

HYPE! Here's hoping for some more extra tracks this time around, good to hear that we'll have at least 15 more songs, and likely another full song as well if it only ends up being around 12 or 13 more actual songs.

 

Wonder why it's always on the Japanese edition that gets more songs? AFAIK only Coldplay has done that, although others deluxe albums are just everywhere (although I think GS deluxe was Target as well......)

 

Jacob also created a vocal-harmonizer with Bloomberg. Basically he sings into a mic which runs through a keyboard, and every note he plays on the keyboard is an extra note added to the harmony he's singing. He built this thing from nothing.

 

So he's an electronic engineer as well?!!?!?!?!?!?!?

 

I translated the page and it confirms WOTW/POTP means Wonders of the World/Power of the People. I didn't know that, I thought it was War of the Worlds.

 

I always wondered what, and if, that meant anything for an abbreviation. Glad to know that it was (and to nobody's surprise it's the Japanese version of the site that gives us that information )

 

Was just looking at the new pics that we’ve seen of the band and the orphans video, and noticed Wills drum kit is simpler than a full drum kit, even on the video where he is playing drums... and arabesque doesn’t have much drum work per say, except the outro has a lot of crashes going on. But could it be all songs on the new album have minimalistic drums (excluding extra percussions). Or maybe more of a percussion driven album but not necessarily a traditional full drum kit? What do you think?

 

I for one am excited for this. Hopefully it means that Will might be experimenting with taking more of a minimalistic approach to percussion, restricting himself in ways that might make him more creative. Even though it might be percussion driven. It might mean that he'll be using other instruments besides the standard drum set.

The link below is the first video of a 3 part series where Jacob explains his thoughts on harmony, the overtone series and other theoretical aspects of music. It's really well edited (shows diagrams of the scales he's singing, as well as playing it on piano to support it) and you can see Jacob singing a multitude of scales in various keys, from memory, perfectly on pitch. It's quite remarkable. It's not just his sheer understanding, the guy is CREATING and REVOLUTIONISING:

 

 

 

Here is a video of him explaining and using his vocal harmoniser too:

This band is bi-polar

 

AHFOD: “we’re getting stargate and Beyonce”

 

EL: “Get me the modern day Mozart”

 

Although, I’d prefer it was more of the band and less collaborations, good Collabs don’t bother me one bit.

 

The hype train is full steam ahead.

I remember an old quote about David Bowie only being as good as the people he collaborates with. I think that’s a bit unfair towards Bowie’s own genius, he’s obviously brilliant in his own right, but there’s a reason why his album featuring Donny McCaslin and Maria Schnieder was better received than his record with Mickey Rourke rapping on it. The same idea is just as applicable to Coldplay I think. Obviously a brilliant band in their own right, but they need the right collaborators to bring out the best in them.

As someone whose musical education stopped in high school..... that first video is way above my pay grade :joy:

 

BUT the idea of Coldplay collaborating with someone who is so steeped in knowledge of musical theory is very, very interesting. I really have no idea what to expect!

Yes, they are brilliant in their own right and if they can only become even better by collaborating, that's ok.

It's funny how the two songs of the new album released so far seems to make everybody happy. "Orphans is for the 'Newplayers' and 'Arabesque' is for the 'OldPlayers'.

It's strange that they release a song as their first song which had only be created at the very last minute.

Hi guys!

 

Now that we have the official track list, we are creating individual threads for each track, if you feel like discussing one in particular.

We may build subsections, as for previous eras, but if that happens it will be a bit later.

Since this is a double album we have a lot of tracks hence a lot of threads, so here's a recap for all the links - I'm also adding it the first post of this thread so it's easier to find. This might come in handy if more and more threads are created in the weeks leading up to album release.

This is a very funny interview I re-watched today and I feel like they are talking about "Everyday Life" essentially.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVjvmvKigmw:425

 

The thing Chris said to Annie Mac, that the title was picked 10 years earlier and the use of Mylo-sessions Arabesque for the new song make me believe that they recorded many of the new songs back then. That could explain the 100 years theme as a joke (someone said that before in this thread), that the new album has been in the works for a very long time!

 

A few minutes after they show the Arabic script in the Bakery (Peace and Love)

I've watched this interview so many times back in the day and I can't believe it gives such a big clue for what was eventually coming a decade later :joy: Great find!

So hyped about this album era, these first two song are so good. I was hyped when Violet Hill came along but this maybe even surpasses that. Love the lyrics and meaning for Orphan, just wow. That uplifting vibe and then the thought behind it. Looks like this might be their best album lyrically. Love that.

I'm excited for the prospect that we might get some unreleased old stuff repurposed for this album, like "Arabesque".

Apparently in Japan it's a lot cheaper to import CDs from other countries so record labels usually put an extra bonus track or two on the Japanese version to try and encourage the people of Japan to buy that version.

It wasn't really a review though... But here you go (just used google translate so there may be mistakes)

 

 

Coldplay is back with their long-awaited new album, "Everyday Life," which will be released on November 22.

After seven successful studio albums, of which "A Head Full Of Dreams" was the last in 2015, the UK band now releases an eighth studio album.

"Everyday Life" has 16 numbers, divided into two parts of 8 numbers, "Sunrise" and "Sunset". The cover of the album dates from 1919 and is a photograph of a band of the great-grandfather of band member Johnny Buckland.

The album is, as the title suggests, a reaction to contemporary life and touches on current topics such as war, the refugee crisis, the rise of right-wing nationalism, sexism, racism, police violence, corruption and gun control.

The band started writing the album during the two-year tour following "A Head Full Of Dreams".

This tour was the fourth largest tour of all time in the world and the new album is therefore a reaction to the turbulent times the band went through and the political chaos that arose around the same period.

The 16 songs were recorded at various locations worldwide and the album was produced by "The Dream Team". Artists from different countries, including Stromae, Femi Kuti, Tiwa Savage and Jacob Collier, can also be heard on the album.

 

Coldplay wishes to convey a message of "Peace and Love" with "Everyday Life", which can also be read on the album in Arabic.

With lyrics like "I Could Be You, You Could Be Me", the band brings out a sense of togetherness, love and empathy.

It's not much.... But in this video, which was released in early 2016, you can see the Arabic writing of "Peace and Love" on the wall in their live space. It's obvious Everyday Life has been in the making for some time...

 

You'll see it at the 4:13 mark. You might have to shift the camera around a little as it's a 360 video.

Actually the wiring has been in the bakery since viva era. They may be using the phrase for this album, but don't think there was a direct correlation way back when.

I have a bit of a theory that the opening track, "Sunrise", might actually be an instrumental intro. Kinda like Mylo Xyloto and Life in Technicolour.

 

I also have a feeling that first promo video we got with the 15 second sound bite (22 November, 1919) might actually be Sunrise. Sounds like an album opener to me.
