And when Chris played UATW during his first Instagram Live stream last year... after mentioning that the song had been "finished"... he played a beautiful piano version much like the one above. Oddly enough, it didn't include the "silver bird" verse.

A "silver bird" might refer to an airplane? Or even something like a UFO? A rocket ship? Definitely something silver and metallic that flies.

Ahhh, you're thinking of this:

Anyways, I've just finished reading all the Mylo Xyloto comics and it's safe to say that there's enough stuff about outer space in there for Music of the Spheres to connect with it somehow.

Now, get this. There's a moment where Mylo--an orphan--discovers a toy rocket ship from his parents that basically changes his life and helps him unlock his "sparker" powers that the Irdok overlords like Major Minus absolutely hate. That little toy rocket reminds me quite a bit of the one that Chris plays around with in the Champion of the World video.

Just a cool little observation. Probably means nothing but I've been wary about easter eggs in Coldplay music videos ever since the True Love video supposedly hinted at the bright colorful imagery and optimism of A Head Full of Dreams with that "anything is possible" text at the end. I remember quite a bit of speculation about it.

For those wondering what Chris said, here's that version of UATW - he indeed says they've just finished the song....8 years after it was released on MX. And then after he plays the song someone requests he says "UFO...I definitely can't remember that and there's another song called UFO which isn't out either.

Took these (sorry for the bad image quality, these are only printscreens) from the videos from O2 shootings. It seems that the symbols are not only those 5 that we knew until now. My guesses is that i

Maybe if Jay starts wearing that shirt more often, I'll start calling it The Buckland Symbol and drawing it all over everything. Or the Buck Signal maybe?   Legend has it, if you shine the B

To me, this is at least another signal that they've continuously been working on songs like this for quite some time, rewriting the lyrics and everything. 

As Jon Lasseter said, you never finish something, you only stop working on it.

According to Music Journalist José Norberto Flesch, Coldplay will be one of the acts performing at Rock in Rio 2021. He's a very reputable Music Source and previously predicted their Rio de Janeiro shows back in 2017.

His tweet found here:

He also posted a video. Can anyone translate the Portuguese into English? Thanks!

To me this is one of the clearest signs of new music coming out soon! The Rock in Rio festival takes place in the latter half of 2021.

I'm from Portugal and I don't know much about him but he seems like a reliable source. No need for translation, he just says Coldplay will be part of the line-up for the 2021 Rock In Rio Brazil. Though I doubt that with Covid around it will actually happen... But who knows!

I'm from Brazil and Flesch is a very reliable and good source, especially about Rock in Rio, but I also doubt very much that the festival will occur this year. Although, it's a great sign!

Yeah, especially since Brazil's one of the COVID hotspots. But at least it's a sign of new music coming out soon!

are you going to try and get tickets in march?

I don't know ... If this is true, I fear that due to possible postponements Coldplay will no longer participate. And Rock in Rio's refund policy is a little difficult.

José Norberto Flesch is famous in Brazil for his good informations about concerts. I don't think Rock in Rio is going to happen this year, but maybe Coldplay can perform in the festival in 2022? Plus... if this news is confirmed, it will be the second time Brazil spoils something about the band's new material 😂

To me, the Rock in Rio news makes me think that Coldplay intend to release Music of the Spheres either this summer or early fall.  Although, that could all change due to the circumstances.

No there not, Coldplay will release Music of the Spheres this summer sometime in June or July before Rock in Rio 2021 tour, we’ll just wait and see what happens next, they still recording the album right now

They played a bunch of festivals from June to October of 2011 and Rock In Rio was the last one. It's safe to say that they won't be doing another big festival tour this year. Maybe something toward the end of the year (like Rock In Rio Brazil, which runs from late September to early October)? I for one am not confident that the state of the world will allow such crowds until the end of the year. 2022 will probably be a better year for touring. 

I wonder if Coldplay are in a similar situation to what the Foo Fighters dealt with as they were recording their new album Medicine At Midnight. That album was recorded and finished before the pandemic even began but they delayed it for a year, probably because their tour got canceled and they're one of those bands like Coldplay whose tours are always huge and lucrative. Maybe, just maybe, Music of the Spheres is already finished and the band is just waiting for the right time to release it.

I don't know, but I feel really optimistic for the upcoming album. Maybe it's just the album hype, but the possibilities of Brian Eno having a say in this really have me hoping for the best.

It might just be a generic pop album like AHFOD, but I don't think the term Music of the Spheres came out of nowhere. It seems like a concept that the band could build on and an interesting one that they could explore in the album. If they'd wanted to create a generic pop album but space-themed they could have given it another name, but that weird name from 2010 - Music of the Spheres - still stuck around. I just feel that this album will be more ambitious and explore more complicated concepts than AHFOD and GS did.

Yeah, I think so too.
