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 😀

she may not know that next album is supposed to be called like this🤔

now another speculative moment.. I have my theory about the 5 symbols on HP and MOTS covers...

is the track 4 but may represent orbit 1 too cause it is in part 1 (after MOTS 1)

🔼 the triangle is the symbol of vol. 1 according to the litography. vol. 1 includes orbit 1 and (part of) orbit 2

♾️ infinity sign is track  11 which comes after MOTS 2, so maybe representing orbit 2

⚛️ this is probably the symbol of vol. 2, on HP physical release symbol for vol.1 is next to different symbol with paralell circles instead of crossing circles but maybe they are for the same thing? vol.2 may continue orbit 2 and include full orbit 3

🌀the vortex maybe be an emoji of vol. 2 following a MOTS 3 and representing orbit 3

so 2 volumes and 3 orbits = 5 symbols

Yeah and vol 2 (and 3 if there will be one) might be EP:s as well.

Just posted this on Twitter, but figured I'd share here as well:

I just saw a Reddit post that made me think of something... The branding on Coldplay's YouTube channel is the number 1 in Kaotican, and the album kicks off with Higher Power which counts down from 3... were these teasers for 3 volumes or am I reading too much into it? 😅

I think there will be three releases. The music video for Higher Power actually says: "Music of the spheres - A melodic orbit in three parts"

Maybe... we have some leads, like the intro of the HP music video, and Chris calling it MOTS Vol. I. So it's safe to asume we'll have more volumes/releases. 

Will they use the same planets and alphabets once again? :O

Oh yeah I know we will see three releases. I was just saying I wonder if the YouTube branding and the countdown at the beginning of Higher Power (3-2-1 instead of the usual 4-3-2-1) was a hint at 3 volumes before we found out through Chris' note.

here's a thought.

could october 15 be an important day space wise? if so, maybe there's a pattern for all upcoming releases (the singles, vol 2 & 3, etc.)

This is a pretty noteworthy event:

October 15, 1997: NASA launched Cassini, beginning the spacecraft's long journey to Saturn. Cassini reached Saturn’s orbit in July 2004 and has been used to collect data on the planet’s composition, rings, moons and atmosphere. The launch vehicle used was a Titan IVB with a Centaur upper stage.

Good research all. Yeah I'm pretty thoroughly convinced that we WILL get multiple albums/releases over the next year. 

It's definitely true that they've used Vol. 1 before inaccurately, and I'd include Global Citizen EP Vol. 1 by Los Unidades in that grouping. That said, it just makes sense for these reasons: 

The band had to delay releases/tour during the pandemic, so they have more time in studio if they want it. Releasing MORE music is a big trend right now amongst popular artist (i.e. Taylor Swift with Evermore and Folklore). We know Coldplay has TONS of unreleased tracks from past eras to rework. Having a second, third volume allows the band to stretch out this era as long as they want (maybe years) so they can incorporate it into their touring when that's safe and environmentally friendly. The concept of "Spheres" as planets as unique songs can get stretched a long way. Chris has always said that they like to have a concept or a name and move from there. But when they're done with an album, they're done. Is it possible that when Chris said they've finished something recently, that it's actually all three volumes? Or maybe just the two volumes?

Guys! Let's talk about The Race.

Yes, it is true that last weekend someone uploaded a version of The Race.

Here's the important part:

1. Before one could make any claim regarding how 'new' this version might be, let's clarify what 'new' means: before last weekend, I was aware of two versions of The Race: the short AHFOD-movie version, as well as a long version which surfaced online last summer. 

2.  What are the rules on this forum regarding talking about / discussing unreleased material? Let's say someone downloaded the version that was uploaded, and would like to verify whether he/she owns a new version, what can he/she share in this forum while respecting the rules?

Soz, I screwed up the quote above ^

 

Anyway... Wasn'tthat guy who posted a snippet few days ago that sounds like GS version but with female voice? I tried contacting him but looks like he vanished, Idk if we will hear the full thing now 

😞

Also there's a thread dedicated for the Race afaik

I remember Chris said they had a strict schedule to follow (whatever that means), otherwise Mr. Will Champion would be very mad at him. So this could be a potential confirmation of all the releases they are planning to give us out.

I think it was the same interview, where he told us about a handwritten announcement.

That's not impossible when it comes to Coldplay 😅

Had a dream last night that once the, Music of the Spheres era/chapter was over they'd release one last album/CD set and it contained had all of Coldplay's B-side only song tracks. They may've hinted at a few new songs too but I forget...

 

Guess I have a wild imagination but it was be neat to see an only B-side album.

Hey folks! :awesome:

FYI I've just created some threads in this LP9 subforum for each MOTS vol1 tracks that didn't have its own thread yet!

Please post directly on there when it comes to discussing a specific track so that we can keep this main thread not too messy 😅

Excited to see what your thoughts are on all those songs!

I've been researching through some recent interviews and this one caught my attention.

I had already watched it but something clicked when I read Chris's handwritten note with "Music of the Spheres (vol. i)" and the expression "it was is produced by Max Martin", so I went back to YouTube, looking for the interview.

Maybe the second volume is going to be called Music of the Spheres as well (like the first four albums by Peter Gabriel). Moreover, they seem to be working on new music at the moment and this new music is probably not going to be included in the first volume as one of Coldplay's rules states: "Make sure videos and pictures are great before setting a release date" which likely applies to music as well, an album should be complete before setting a release date, track listing, etc...

This is pure speculation, but I thought it could be useful to share it!
