I really hope they'll remove the ad in the middle of the song on YouTube. The ones at the beginning and end should be enough. It was a weird interruption while listening.

Honestly, I think that if they cut a song like this down to 3-4mins and released as a single that it would actually do better than HP. This style suits them as a band so much better in my opinion.

Right, and the freaking YouTube algorithm knows when Jonny's solo starts and decided that's the best time to interrupt 😑. I have it in Spotify, but there no lyrics there yet lol.

Could be a radio edit, but since is not officially a single I don't think is probably.

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 😀

Can we just agree that we need the boys to follow their hearts? I know the mainstream stuff is not up to everybody's taste, but just imagine how we simply wouldn't have this masterpiece if it wasn't for all the years of exploring new stuff ❤️

Haha, yes, the ad distracted me from the solo a bit. I've installed an ad blocker now so it shouldn't bother me anymore! 🙂 Youtube must have placed the ad due to the length of the video, it could still be removed though. Anyway, I think the video is very beautiful otherwise.

Someone else on here rated Coloratura 7/10, and I think that's fair. It's a massive step up from HP (2/10). 10/10 for me would be songs like Clocks or The Scientist.

For me Coloratura is in another dimension, can't even rate it. I find it funny that even though I've followed them since the beginning and Fix You is like my favorite song ever I'm completely grounded by Coloratura. I think it's a total masterpiece. 

But we all have different opinions and taste and that should be respected and valued ❤️

Yes! 😄 And I can't even tell you what exactly it is about that song, I just can't connect with it at all. It's not even about oldplay vs newplay for me, or indie vs pop. Cause I love songs like Trouble in Town or AOAL. And I love it when Coldplay experiment, BrokEn for example is another song that I love and that I find more uplifting than HP for some reason.

Hi everyone! I'm new here. I've been following this thread since last year but I never created my account until now though. Coloratura is a total masterpiece, the best song Coldplay have ever written since AROBTTH. 

I wanted to say also that maybe Rescue St is under the name of Human Heart, I remember an interview where the band said that this song was only focused on vocals, probably the music remains the same but lyrics are different or they had to change the title due to the new album concept (planets, space and universe). And this is not the only example out there. Just listen to Humankind intro we've already listened so far in the album trailer, it sounds the exact way on Life is Beautiful, but the name is totally different and maybe that's what happens all the time with the song titles and song structures of unreleased music from the band. Remember also that Car kids guitar riff was later released as Vodoo under Los Unidades, and elements from The Blue Room were incorporated into Square One. The same happened with December, which turned into Violet Hill and so on. Maybe The Race will come out with a different title and is already included into MOTS. Who knows?

Imo, Coloratura sounds that was composed originally in the X&Y era, but in that time was not fully completed and sounded "passionless" as Chris mentioned once in an interview when the band was composing a lot of songs that were about to be included in the album, but they were ditched then. Remember that 42 songs were ditched from X&Y. Maybe the new album contains songs from that era.

I guess Chris really meant it when he said that they would be full of surprises from then, what a great song Coloratura is.

Yeah, and releasing a single from actual space was just one of the casual things they do. (...jk, you're right)

Interesting theory! My guess is that Coloratura was written at the same time as SJLT, Champion of the World, and Flags based on lyrics, and Hypnotised (esp the guitar solo and piano parts) and AICTAIY (for the chord changes) and ALIENS based on music, noting that Coloratura has a brief 5/4 section that sounds vaguely like the end of ALIENS. So my personal guess is 2017, but you could also totally make an argument that it’s from X&Y based on the space themes!

Human Heart is what we've already heard. It duesnt have anything to do with Rescue St. 

Where did you hear about the Car Kids riff being in Voodoo? As Voodoo was already an MX-era song that existed at the same time as Car Kids.

ALIENS existed in 2009/2010

I like HP more than Coloratura. And Coloratura isn’t my favorite and probably won’t be on this album. Sorry I don’t feel the same way about Coloratura than like 99% of you all. 

What do you mean it won't be on the album? Its already been announced.

[sorry to be double reposting here because i can't tell if the Coloratura thread or this thread is where all the action is at lol]

What a brilliant song in every possible way! My only complaint is Jonny's solo is a bit short. But my first few thoughts:

-The refugee-centric narrative becomes more clear here. MOTSvol1 sounds like a journey for an alien to somewhere that welcomes them. 

-The lyrics have an interesting common thread with SJLT and Flags, in which there's a lot of naming-of-historical-figures (if you count superheroes as historical figures). It's not my instant favourite way of being as compared to early Coldplay's vague angst, VLV era vague 1800s angst, or Up&Up which is full of fun imagery/literary references. But it works and it's cool. 

Various stylistic thoughts:

-What an interesting evolution of Moving to Mars, Gravity, Daddy in particular. The harps and strings are a great touch. I hope they can recreate all of that live!! Common to MTM and Coloratura and also HP is how much heavy lifting Will does vocally. He sounds GREAT. 

-A lot of Lydian mode is used in Coloratura, ie if you have a piano in front of you, play an F-to-F scale only on the white keys (as opposed to having a B-flat). You know what else is in Lydian mode? the theme to Back to the Future (and also the Simpsons lol). 

-Jonny tweeted on the CP Q+A that he was experimenting with a Meris Enzo synthesizer pedal. You can really hear it in the 1st chorus and a few other spots where the guitar is super um, synth-like. Eg the tremolo effect with shifting filter. And later he plays a melody that sounds like a synth but pretty sure it's generated from the guitar. SUPER COOL.

-The bassline is so cool! Phil tweeted and referred to it as "waterfall". It reminds me a lot of Explorers by Muse:

 

-The piano is obviously very good. A lot of chromaticism and interesting chord changes very reminiscent of Bohemian Rhapsdody and also United States of Eurasia by Muse:

 

Well-said. I'd like to add that ALIENS has a refugee-centric narrative too. And the name for Moving to Mars came from a Mat Whitecross documentary about Burmese refugees.

Anyways, I'm glad someone else got Muse vibes. It reminds me of the grandiosity of some of Matt Bellamy's piano playing, with lots of classical influences. As I listen to Coloratura more and more, I hear lots of similarities to United States of Eurasia, including its outro which comes from a classical piano piece by Chopin.

Do you guys think that Vol.2 will be also produced by Max Martin as well? Because I assumed, that some older songs (MX Era) would make it to this album and it seems they won't be. Mainly the ones produced with Brian Eno, so I'm not sure if that's the reason why they are not on this one, as Max Martin probably won't be "reusing" them, if that makes sense. I don't know much about any of the legal stuff, but that was just a random thought since there are a lot of MX songs that have been teased and so far it seems none of them will be on Vol.1...
