Awwwww, that was a really sweet Q&A. People asked some really great questions and I loved these new insights into the album and era in general. I think my favorite bit was Chris and Will's answer to the question about swearing and how their creative process usually prevents that.

 

My favorite part was when Jonny acknowledged how handsome he is

So, I found this drawing of what I thought the eighth album cover would look like:itW9anZ.png.b1362ca236b804503680f2284104bea1.png

I made this before the first album hints starting popping up. I thought the album would have heavy symbolism and morse code. One of my biggest hopes was for it to have a song in a different language, and EL had a bunch of those! I imagined it with a song that spells out "Music is the universal language" in morse code. Now that I think about it, that's not too far off from "Music is the weapon of the future." :D

 

It's so much fun to look back and read all my album predictions I wrote. Especially on the day before EL's official release.

That q&a was really good.

 

But am i the only one who thought the “we’ll do both” is such a throw away line that I don’t think Chris was serious? Haha.

 

Guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

BTW, for a really long time the album had another title. It changed when the song Everyday Life emerged.

Would be interesting to find what that other title was.

(Perhaps Music of the Spheres?)

You know what I just realized?

 

Watch one of those early live versions of Always In My Head, with the sun rising on the screen in the background.

 

 

It seems like they've had this sunrise theme on their minds for a while, even before Hypnotised ("It was dark, now it's sunrise").

Someone mentioned in a thread (can't remember who) that there is a track by track review of EL in iTunes/Apple music. Can someone share a recording? I don't use iTunes.

So Chris has a different relationship to this album than the others, like GS. It almost sounds like he wants to protect it and keep it as something to discover for the real fans. Away from the mainstream, at least in Coldplay's perspective. And doesn't look like this is subject matter that he wants to linger on, which you do if you tour. Unlike AHFOD. I remember him saying that era was so much fun and they wanted to stay in it a couple of years.

 

So why are we getting such a short era for such an awesome album? I'd say because of the band's personal and sort of treasured relationship to the album.

 

And Chris really didn't want to talk about guns!

Anyone know when the songs will be available on itunes today. Im in Philly. Figured I’d wake up with them. Nothing yet.

Btw I don't think Coldplay rigged the poll. Why would they do that ? Viva is a very popular (and great) song, it's perfectly understandable that it won.

 

 

Well I just think it's a little unfair they threw a really obscure song in there, when they obviously knew which one was gonna win for the start (they brought the bells and everything for Viva). It's like they're trolling the fanbase who realizes there's already countless live versions of Viva, and there'll be countless more, so as great of a song as it is it shouldn't be a "what's your favorite song" poll, it should be "which would you like to see played", although I guess most people don't know that song so they just automatically vote Viva, and while I like Viva more I would definitely choose the song that rarely ever gets played live, and to actually witness it LIVE would be something else.

 

 

 

VLV was my other choice so I'm glad it won. And I think it fits the best with this current era.

 

 

There are more fitting songs in Coldplay's discography for the era, but out of the choices in the poll, it is fair to say Viva was the most fitting.

 

 

 

so nice to see a nod to one of the best songwriters the UK has produced.

 

 

From one of the best songwriters the UK has ever produced.

 

:D

 

 

Did you notice it?! Page 22 of the booklet[ATTACH=full]9738[/ATTACH]

 

The thing that caught my eye first was "divine inspiration from Jon Hopkins" :joy: :joy: freaking awesome I'm glad they still look up to him

 

 

But am i the only one who thought the “we’ll do both” is such a throw away line that I don’t think Chris was serious? Haha.

 

Eh, maybe. I'd have to watch the Q&A to know what you're talking about but they don't seem to believe in following these rules strictly so they'll probably play both for all the fans in the comment section :joy:

Oh damn, anybody know what the original album title was yet?

I remember Music of the Spheres somewhere but I can't put my finger on it..... anybody guide me?

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY'RE PLAYING SPARKS TOO! :O

Or I guess I can, because there was a million comments asking for it......

But damn now we get the best of both worlds! A great song live, and another great song, a really rare song live!

Geez I still can hardly believe they're playing both IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE THEY PLAYED SPARKS :O

Pff 'When I Need A Friend' is so damn good and even more impressing in the Jordan version. With only chris singing in the beginning.

I think Viva was on there bc despite it's being played so much it is at least one of Chris's favorite songs they made (based on a couple interviews I've seen).

I posted this elsewhere, but here are my first impressions.

 

I avoided leaks like the plague in hopes I could walk into this evening like it was Christmas Eve. I was petrified I would unintentionally overhype the album, yet here I am with my jaw on the floor. Words escape me in trying to articulate just how remarkable this album is. Whereas I found issues to nitpick quietly with every album post-Viva, this one has me appreciating every aspect of the album.

 

As so many of you said had said when the album leaked, there truly isn’t a bad song on the album. There are a few I have yet to fully connect with, but they aren’t bad in the slightest. This is the album Coldplay has been capable of for years, and now that we have it, I’m nothing short of stunned. I understand how polarizing it may be to some, but that’s why I love it. It’s raw, messy and genuine.

 

Favorite tracks so far, in no particular order: Trouble in Town, Éko, Champion of the World, Guns, Church, Arabesque, Cry Cry Cry.

 

I feel very comfortable placing this in my top three Coldplay albums. The album is everything I wanted it to be and more.
