Hi guys!!! Last Monday an Italian newspaper published a brief interview with violinist Davide Rossi. I'm Italian and live in Italy, so I promptly went to the newsagent's and bought the paper. In

LEAK  

My special edition CD came early...so it's just leaked inside my house 😀

I don't know about you but I'd love to see a Coldplay post-rock song, in the style of Sigur Ros - haunting falsettos, droning guitars, gigantic orchestration, and moments of beautiful ambience in between these huge crescendos. It's one of the few genres I can think of in modern music that they haven't touched yet, so based on it being Will's favorite song and Guy saying they've never done it before, I still have some hope for that!

Ah yes that would be super cool. This would mean Jonny playing the guitar with a violin bow. 😄

Muse ... ???

Thank you for reminding me of what that screencap reminds me of. This whole video is VERY Kaotica/HP vibes.

I'd be all for that.

 

Another song idea I think would be neat to experience is this.

There's been a long history of various musicians continuing this fictional character's journey through songs. I'm typing about, David Bowie's "Major Tom" astronaut.

▪"Space Oddity" David Bowie 1969

▪"Major Tom (Coming Home)" Peter Schilling 1983

"Mrs. Major Tom" K.I.A 2002

▪ "The Empty Glass" The Tea Party 2011

( if you want more, search the wikipedia)

Major Tom - Wikipedia

~ I'd be thrilled if Coldplay wanted to include a lyric about Major Tom or write an entire song about this tragic space hero.

Do hope at least a few songs on this upcoming album have space imagery in the lyrics etc.

Nice idea, although I'm not sure where Coldplay would go with Major Tom after Blackstar.

Just like how a certain other Jonny (Jonny Greenwood) has played guitar before 😉

Either a Radiohead or a Muse-influenced record would be so cool. Maybe the music video will take inspiration from Sing For Absolution... and the screen cap really does looks like something out of a Muse video.

Its definitely Girl 

There will probably be song mentioning a girl sort of How HP says the Boy is Electric

Didn't someone find "Universe Girl" written in Kaotican on some of the band's equipment? That's what I see in the image on the left.

JOY on side 

Can't make out 1st letter on back of amp but 2nd is I and its 4 letters

Where/when is this screencap? I find it kind of odd that Jonny has a guitar just sitting on the amp instead of on a stand (or being carried away by a roadie). Is this during the Scientist when he has the make the acoustic-to-electric switch? My dreaming heart would love for Jonny to play lap-steel inspired guitar on a flat guitar though (which is roughly the sound in Hypnotised). Also very present on the record Bon Iver by Bon Iver.

That WOULD be cool. How about a collaboration with Radiohead instead. 2 Jonny's and 2 hairless drummers. That would break the internet....but probably not.

Kind of interesting to come full circle to Radiohead and Muse though - a lot of people describe Parachutes as a watered down Oasis+Radiohead, and you kind of hear the RH influence on songs like Spies, High Speed, Bigger Stronger - the guitar sounds are quite reminiscent of the Bends. Meanwhile, Shiver is a blatant ripoff of Jeff Buckley's Grace. And I think either Chris or Guy has described GPASUYF as being rather Muse-inspired. 

But those are all pertaining to OLD Radiohead and OLD Muse, whereas both of these bands have gone a lot more electronic and experimental in the past 10-15 years. So ripping off and watering down NEW RH/NEW Muse would be rather fascinating. Which also reminds me, Coldplay has never quite done a proper take on dubstep the way that Muse's Unsustainable is very blatantly "let use guitars to sound like Srillex". Would be fun to see Coldplay try that kind of thing, though I know there are many dubstep haters out there. 

I guess my bottom line though is this - there's so much music out there, and sure maybe the BTS thing might happen, but there's just so much inspiration and new directions Coldplay could still take with this record because we haven't heard most of the songs!!!

Honestly I'd love it if GaGa was featured on a song and it became apparent that Chromatica exists in the same universe. It would be like the Coldplay Extended Universe, featuring Chromatic, Silencia, and Kaotica.
