I love the vibe. It sounds really catchy 80s pop but with a real Coldplay signature! I bet there will be an awesome solo by JB somewhere near the end. So excited! 

I'm doing my best to imagine that there's an epic guitar solo by Jonny as a part of the middle eight, actually

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

Estoy muy decepcionado después de escuchar ese fragmento.

 

Totally agree.  It's probably a hit but it's a death knife to Coldplay rock

Exactly, if they manage to make what they would have wanted MX to be with Ghost Stories or EL level production I'll be pleased.

This is only 15 seconds but I am getting massive 80s vibes, good production so far which means now I'm not longer cautiously optimistic and just optimistic lol!

11 years after MX if they manage to make the Mecha-MX I'll cry tears of joy

Exactly my thoughts. I have a lot of hope for the album now.

It all sounds very much like MX part two! 

I think even better news is that NO WAY WILL WE BE WAITING FOR FULL LEAK OF HIGHER POWER UNTIL FRIDAY.
This will leak in a couple of days if you ask me...

I was fully aware we will be getting something really poppy immediately after seeing their new outfits. So im not disappointed at all. It's what could have been expected, fair enough. 

We are all going through really hard and strange times - thats why they defintely nailed it, after what we can judge from the snippet. It's all about about hope and looking forward to better and more shiny days. Thats what this song will deliver, for sure. 

As a side note: I'm pretty sure the new record will also please those who are more into the bands older stuff, with maybe 2 or 3 songs. But overall, a stadium and radio-friendly album is what should be expected - with some new influences as well. But they wont re-invent the wheel. And thats good! 😊

It's about the taste if people like it or not, but Higher Power has hell of a strong production, that's not arguable! A bit reminds me Blinding Lights, but Higher Power has more dynamics, stronger drums and bass and overall more boost, at least in this clip. Hoping for some of the amazing Jonny's guitar elements though, to give it proper Coldplay vibe.

Very catchy, definitely need the whole song now!

I hear Hurts Like Heaven and Birds. I'm not gonna give up on this song just yet because Hurts Like Heaven and Birds are great. I can hear the 80s influence, with some A-ha sprinkled in because we know they're A-ha fans. I just want to hear that classic Jonny Buckland guitar hook and solo... hopefully he's in there somewhere.

It reminds a lot to Birds, which is a favorite of mine from AHFOD. It also gives me a lot of summer vibes.

I can also hear a bit of HLH at the end. If it is, it must likely have a nice instrumental bridge/part.

Overall, it sounds nice

Edit:

The more I listen to it, the more I love it! It is just so optimistic and energetic, one of the reasons why I love Birds And MX overall.

I can't wait for Friday to come!

Blinding Lights is a generic garbage. People talking about it like it's a decade's defining masterpice of a song like Bohemian Rhapsody or Wind Of Change.

I get not liking it but I don’t understand why anyone was expecting rock for this lead single produced by prolific pop producer Max Martin (especially when Coldplay have always been pop anyway, the way people talk about rock here you’d think Coldplay’s first three albums were really heavy or something)

i like that it’s got a HLH/Birds vibe but with an 80s touch, hopefully there’s some great rifs on there and maybe some spacey type touches to it too

As long as Jonny drops a magic riff in there, we'll all be okay. But yeah, this is what pop Coldplay produced by Max Martin is gonna be. No big surprise.

This was probably meant to be a GRAND album so it's gonna make a massive sound then!

However, this song is going to be unbelievable in concerts...

Blinding Lights is not Bohemian Rhapsody but it's still a great song, better than a lot of hits we're hearing. And the production seems a lot better than Stargate with AHFOD.

ok wow that snippet sounds catchy as fuck!

hopefully the rest of the song is this good too, hopefully Jonny has a solo of some sort because the snippet sounds like that would fit the song :wacko:

I felt that too!! Love how it sounds 😍


Have anyone here pre-ordered the cd single? Did you receive an email confirmation? I did the pre order yesterday but there’s nothing on my mail 😞

I did, the confirmation was in my spam folder. Did you check that?

Blinding Lights no es Bohemian Rhapsody, pero sigue siendo una gran canción, mejor que muchos de los éxitos que estamos escuchando. Y la producción parece mucho mejor que Stargate con AHFOD. 

Blindint Lights is a cheap copy of take on. Even the riff is very the same.

Federico Vindver is credited in Higher Power. Didn't he post something related to Coldplay on his Instagram story at one point and people were speculating that it was a sign he was continuing to work with them? He previously worked on Everyday Life.

Denise Carite, who appeared in the Love Choir, is also credited.

And obviously the second Martin is Max Martin.

No me gusta, pero no entiendo por qué alguien esperaba rock para este sencillo principal producido por el prolífico productor de pop Max Martin (especialmente cuando Coldplay siempre ha sido pop de todos modos, la forma en que la gente habla de rock aquí, uno pensaría que Coldplay es el primero en hacerlo. tres álbumes eran realmente pesados o algo así)

Me gusta que tiene un ambiente HLH / Birds, pero con un toque de los 80, espero que haya algunos rif geniales allí y tal vez algunos toques de tipo espacial también.

Coldplay on their first four albums were definitely rock. MX Pop-rock and Ghost Stories is rare. AHFOD POPPPY. Everyday life It is an album I would say mixed.

By the way, hi everyone! It's so good to see so many Coldplayers around and that the forums are so alive it's a great time to be around for everyone! I was mainly active on Twitter (which has gone mad after the Alien Radio FM project (who is following me on Twitter!!!!) and all the teasers came) so I literally forgot to check on the forums :grin:

And of course I'm really looking forward to the release of their upcoming single on May 7 (of which most of us probably heard the 15 sec long snippet already).....

:vuvuzela:
