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

Well, for me Coldplaying is another common room where I can hang out, thus, I'm here so often! But I'm convinced that there are other users who would be more responsible and conscientious as moderator

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

There's Eastern influence on this album again, at least on the visuals we have so far, with moon and sun represented in many flags of Arab countries.

But then there's also that strange mention of Jordan, and Chris had visited Jerusalem several times. There might be some exquisite performances they have in mind in very exotic places. But then again things will be revealed once the album is out, or at least a few weeks before when we get a new single. I doubt very much Nov 22 is just a single release.

It's really interesting to hear some people mentioning reworked things. I also think it is possible because remember Chris saying being full of surprises from now on etc. at the end of the AHFOD tour. I also don't think they would do an album including only rearranged things or reworked songs, maybe a few though.

 

Someone in this thread pointed out the videos of the songs of which thte thumbnails were changed to B&W. It's possible that they rearranged this songs on a completely different way and style + there will be new songs that we haven't heard. And hopefully there will be unreleased tracks on the album as well.

 

So, I won't be surprised if they do an album that crosses the standard of a 9/10 songs tracklisting and based on reworkings along with brand new songs.

 

I don't they will let us down. Like I said before, they know how to surprise fans (I'm counting on that)!!!

By the way, I was really flabbergasted to see people losing hope already for next album. We haven't even heard a song from it and people are being so negative (about some of the producers) which I find not cool. They are just from a different world in music and if Coldplay uses their help to produce a song, it's simply what they want! You can't tell Coldplay what to do and what not to do, right!?

Which is exactly what people were saying about Stargate before LP7 and we all know how that turned out...

You're absolutely right, Coldplay can do whatever they want to do. At the same time, I'm allowed to feel disappointed if they happen to do something I don't enjoy.

Will speak about myself here, actually, because fully in charge of what I said here because so far see some misinterpretations that went even outside forums. For me it was pretty much with hopes being turned down about one (1) song the classical style snippet of which was teased yesterday. Why? Because having particular producers involved in maybe this one particular song reposted shows some certain promises on which twist can the song get based off the sound the producers work on most part of their career and honestly I'm not a fan of any of them. In my opinion, production matters in terms of the bands that create music together meaning that each of their input is valued and very much willing to be heard. I mean, for example, I don't quite feel happy about Jonny's work being hidden under very strange muffed production which is mostly meant for the musicians who have just some session musicians instead. Also adding to this, not everyone has super premium in-ear earphones to hear all the band members' work clearly as it's meant to be. On the top of that I know the song "Apologise" by OneRepublic (and some people over here remembered about it) in 2 versions and that's a big difference between these two versions, so big so that it sounds like a completely different song.

 

I think that all the fans have a right to have an opinion and not like something. There are many things which I adore and love and like but it can't be all over honey even about my most precious favourite band which means a world to me because it's, think, natural, to not like somehing as well. You can call it overreacting but it's unfair to label that only oldplayers want band to sound like 16 years ago or like newplayers want them to sound more eletronics when someone expresses not liking something. It's healthy to not like something in the promise, it's healthy to have an opinion changed. I'm not personally attached to any group like oldplayers or newplayers, but I have some preferences in music and production.

 

So, please, guys, just don't go on war with each other just because someone doesn't likesome hints/promises about collaborations. We'll waitand see, there'll be the whole new album or even two, if rumours are true, to enjoy and find something new. The nice thing is: no one stayed aside from the news about Coldplay which is a perfect sign of fans being dedicated to them, that's all. Let everyone be upset or totally hyped about any hints, just, please, not snapping at each other for something. No one's telling them what to do, everyone just happens to have opinions or preferences, that's all.

On the producer thing. I am down the middle.

I like Los Unidades for what it is. I actually find E-Lo to be really groovy and fun, Timbuktu has great bass, Voodoo is undeniably catchy and I love Danny Oceans verse. But I don't necessarily want those sounds on a Coldplay album.

So I am not angry or upset, just worried. I'd be really excited if the album was experimental and acoustic, but if pop producers worked on it, then maybe the strings tease happens right before a beat drop....

Only time will tell. Maybe they are just showing support and have no idea what it sounds like. Just don't want a repeat of Stargate.

Concerning the videos that have been turned to black and white on YouTube, I have a few theories. Both of which may be wrong, but just some thoughts I had as I was waking up this morning.

 

Theory 1: Maybe they are going to do a mash-up with these particular songs, for one of the songs on LP8? Like with Color Spectrum on AHFOD. Only, take the songs and mash them together in the "style" of whatever sound they have created for the new LP.

 

Theory 2 (and I personally would find this more likely than my first theory): They are going to have more and more songs go black and white each week leading up to LP8's release--a few from each of the old albums, so as to make the new album "eclipse" the past songs slowly, truly showing that they are starting a new era.

 

I could be totally wrong with either of my theories, but just thought I'd share :-)

Either way, I love the 16 sec clip, the music is simply beautiful. As a fan since back in the Parachutes days, I do have my favorite moments and not-as-favorite moments of Coldplay, but I do appreciate how they are constantly evolving and am sooooooooo living for this new album!!!

 

On a side note, I want to thank everyone on here for all their sleuth work, interesting personal theories, posting what they see on Twitter, Insta, etc. I have started working a lot more hours during the day, and in the evening my volunteer work and being Mom Taxi to my three kids (they are all in lots of activities) keeps me super busy so I apologize that I don't post much, but I love and appreciate everything that ALL of you do on here to keep everyone up-to-date on all the new news that rolls in!!! :heart: my fellow Coldplayers!!

I think your second theory is the most plausible explanation I've ever heard about these B+W tracks !

Apparently, the black and white turned songs were all released on a day corresponding with a lunar phase.

Oh my gosh!!!! This just might be it then! Thanks for looking that up, very very interesting. Here we are, putting all the puzzle pieces together (maybe, haha ;-))

So, if this is correct, which ones would be next? Anyone care to research the moon phase on the release dates on all the other songs? :D

Interesting theory.. I’m still confused as to how an eclipse or lunar related events relate to old times, jazz or classical (which is what I mostly gather from their twitter snippet)... how did they, if they did, merge experimental with those other styles is something to really wonder about...
