A 'trampoline'... To me that sounds like we jump back for a short time (that means re-releases of their old albums with lots of bonus stuff) and then jump forward again (new album, tour, etc.).^^

We'll see about that!

Coldplay Twitter posting article about Everyday Life being a potential contender for the Grammy's album of the year, which would be nominated well over a year the album came out... not sure if it's el

Happy to report that half a year later I'm completely over that lack of interest in these songs and Everyday Life is a masterpiece to me that I still play comparatively often !

The other day I received a physical copy of the Japanese edition of Everyday Life. I was surprised to discover that it was different from the regular version, which I had purchased before, in another

What do you expect from the LP8?

What genre would you like to hear in the band?

I would really love if they did something like The Race.In that way I feel they bring both the sounds of new and old Coldplay. Also I really hope production is better this time around.

Yes I think Stargate did a great job but it doesn't really fit together with Coldplay.

The production of All I Can Think is way better though (Stargate wasn't involved with it, I suppose)

I like whatever they do. Honestly, I prefer their real alternative songs. It's okay for them to have some pop tunes/hits but I'd also love to see more alternative stuff on the albums, these days.

Well it appears Chris is back in London after opening his stocking from Goopy in the Maldives. It is now 2019 with the holiday season over, and the band have been seen together recently before Christmas. And Guy said they were to get back to work this year. Whitecross said they are hatching something. And they typically start writing and recording an album around the end/beginning of a calendar year.

I believe the kickoff of LP8 is officially upon us! I would bet we see more of the band around The Bakery and whatnot very shortly.

Maybe in 2019 some news about the new album.

In 2020 some official announcement.

In October of 2020 maybe a single and in 2021 the release of the album.

I would think we get an album by end of 2020 at the latest, then touring starts 2021.

 

But surely they do some concerts, like festivals or something, before the supposed 2021 touring projection.

Let's hope so! We've been waiting long enough for some new stuff! Anyhow, there will be another Global Citizens' concert in New York this year. Perhaps they will release a new EP as 'Los Unidades'. Who knòws?.

I hope they will find the right balance between alternative songs and more poppy tunes. They must try to attract new and younger audiences, too, because people who loved their original sound are perhaps gradually getting too old to go to their concerts.

That actually makes a lot of sense since the first Ep had "Vol. 1" or something like that. I would appreciate seeing the actual Los Unidades and not just Chris.That way they could explain the project better.

Sorry, but as an “old” old player, I take issue with the last sentence. I first started following them in 2005 with X & Y, and have now seen them 3X, once during MX and twice during AHFOD. Their ticket prices for stadiums are also of a price point that is many with established careers (albeit at any age) can handle at the highest levels.

 

I have been pleasantly surprised to find very large portions of the audience in my city to be in the 40+ age group. I know there are other Coldplayers around my age and some of us have mentioned discovering Coldplay more recently.

I'd love to see them go back to a more clasical sound like VLV, but definitely id love to hear some more guitar on the new album, I mean, distortion, even more 'heavy' percussion, like in Lost!... DONT BRING POP BACK AGAIN!!!

 

BUT I'm prepairing myself to hear some more cheap EDM sounds and collabs with a lot of artists... :(

I think that now because they have such a large demographic in terms of ages, in my opinion, the best thing to do next would be to expand upon the Kaleidoscope EP and try to make something more concise out of it. The EP shows that they can still make something in vien of their old (AICTAIY), their alternative (Aliens) and their pop (Miracles) sounds. And better yet, they can also bring new sounds to the mix that can't be categorised from their catalogue, in the case of Hypnotised. As a 18 year old who got to them during the AHFOD era, but would love to have another album like X&Y, I don't think it's feasible nor reasonble to think that will ever go back to being 100% alternative rock since not only they have changed since, but also the music industry as a whole.

You sir, get a standing ovation from me - well said!

^Agree with everyone above. I'd be shocked if they went full on alternative rock or experimental, but I'll be crossing my fingers.

 

Like everyone's been saying, though, the ability to release EP's provides songs that Oldplayers and Newplayers can enjoy, but also the ability for them to take risks. Kaleidoscope, like Magic_2000 says so perfectly, had wide appeal and I think that's why we all generally agree that it's great. But Global Citizen EP feels like the biggest leap forward in a new sound we've ever got. It feels risky. Obviously it alienated some fans, but at least it was something refreshing, albeit imperfect. I'm just thankful to have A Rush Of Blood to the Head and E-Lo on the same playlist and say it was the same guys writing the music! How bizarre and unique is that?

 

I for one will keep dreaming of a super alternative LP8, but I'll certainly expect a Global Citizen EP Vol. 2 that builds on those risks and explores new genres. And who knows, maybe they'll release some other random EP's or singles before this year is out! It feels like now more than ever is really hard to predict and have expectations.

Agree... Years ago, we kinda had the chance to guess what was comming from the guys, I mean, from Parachutes to AROBTTH to X&Y, we kinda could expect guitars and piano all over the place. Now we dont know if LP8 will have rap artists featuring, EDM, trap sounds, latin artists... it kinda scares me and excites me at the same time, since I know the band will do their best to make a great album anyway.

Lizzo – ‘Juice’

The 1975 – ‘Love It If We Made It’

Rosalía – ‘Malamente’

Stormzy – ‘Blinded By Your Grace pt 1’

AC/DC – ‘Thunderstruck’

Daniel Caesar – ‘We Find Love’

Wizkid, Spellz, and Tiwa Savage – ‘Ma Lo’

 

This is the music Chris thinks is great and to which he listens at the moment. Could that be any hint as to the new music Coldplay is going to produce??? Probably not.

I am with @iamsue on this 100%! I am an Oldplayer, have been with them since Parachutes came out when I was 17. At 36 years old I am not necessarily young but hardly "too old" to go to their concerts. Because of several life circumstances I was only able to see them in person for the first time during the AHFOD tour (went to two shows). At this point in my life it's a lot easier to fork over $$$ for concerts than when I was younger and consistently short on cash for anything frivolous like concerts (like anyone in their 20s, coming out of college with debt and having just started my career). If anything, from a business-side of things, us Oldplayers are the ones more likely to have the cash to throw at all things Coldplay.

Money aside, I believe that no one is too old to go have the time of their life at a Coldplay concert. Sure, they have the challenge of reaching out to the new/young audience, but I do believe that they know that there are people like myself who have loved them through their entire career and yearn for them to stay true to their roots at least to a degree.
