Oh wow. Chris played a snippet of a new song during a conference thing on Clubhouse. In the full interview, he asks for it to not be recorded and that it will be out sometime potentially. We should al

I just noticed something after searching for "music of the spheres" on Google. And look what's on the Ghost Stories cover art... Just a cool observation. 🤔

¿Qué significa esto exactamente ? ¿ Puede ser el nuevo contenido de MOTS o algo 

Probably, it would not make much sense to make changes now and change it again if they release lp9 in a few months

Random thought I've been mulling over after listening to EL in full a few times this week: One of the reason's I think coldplay has struggled to have the same amount of critical success over the past 5 years is a lack of focus. I love AHFOD, Kaleidoscope EP and EL but all of them are just so unfocused. The genres are all over the place, the themes and lyrics are incredibly generalized. 

Go back to MX and GS -- at least a story is being told. Sure, i'd argue those stories are vague and the lyrics are a major step down from earlier Coldplay, but at least there's a theme that's stuck to. The only thing keeping EL from potentially being my fave Coldplay album is it's lack of focus. We jump from somber classical music, to alt-rock lite about loving someone, to a song about systemic racism, to bombs over Syria to best friends of past. I'm a defender of the album but man it's hard to explain what it's about and why. 

My hope for LP9 is that thematically, lyrically and musically its tighter and more focused. Perhaps a space theme is the way to go, especially if tells stories about characters from beginning to end, like MX but I'd hope more obvious and poetic.

Remember that Australian interview that in Q4 there were gonna be realises (Warner brand), and that Q4 has already started. So it wouldn’t be strange if we get something new

Actually, he said nothing about Coldplay. He only revealed that major acts will come back soon and the magazine assumed that he was talking about Coldplay

I know what you mean, but EL has a theme that it follows: the world and how it feels these times... love, war, racism... the album is like getting on a plane and visit different places on this planet. 

A great example for a real scifi themed album is an album called "Dimensionaut" from Sound of Contact. Strong themes, great drums and goosebumps all over. Get a listen to it on Youtube.

^totally agree. They usually do a great job weaving in singles into their albums in way that's not to jarring. Like the transition from Birds to HFTW is amazing despite those songs having totally different feels. Orphans was maybe a little to upbeat for EL, but nonetheless I wish it was more successful on the radio. Almost 1 year later I still think it's an amazingly good pop single, but it likely will never get much recognition.

The setlist was: 

Viva la Vida

Clocks

Trouble in Town

Adventure of a Lifetime

Fix You

A Sky Full of Stars

 

They excluded Paradise and Charlie Brown. Therefore 2 songs remain. New music? The race? Any MOTS song?
