Don't forget 'I'd rather be a comma than a full stop'!😂

Am I alone in thinking that this is one of Chris' best lyrics of all time? I think it's a cracking line!

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

So hard to glean anything from this snippet, but agree that it has instant Mylo vibes. The melody feels pretty simple and lullabyish, but like it could be building to something more catchy and epic. Who knows if it's even a piano song! 

I'm sticking with my guess that they're returning to a pop alt-rock style similar to Mylo but this time instead of the Brian-eno xylobryte/ambient wall of sound, they'll do more new-wave style. New wave has made a huge comeback recently with Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, the Weeknd and now Justin Bieber to some extent. So I'm guessing there'll be some singles with big synths, maybe something that has super modern production with the help of Max Martin.  Chris has always been a huge fan of 80's legends like A-Ha and Peter Gabriel. 

This style is perfect for modern pop singles but also lends itself to alternative tracks: big synth prog-rock sounds and post-punk. Maybe they could have a super-spacey ambient song with Jon Hopkins or some other electronic producer but then some straight up rock songs inspired by 80's rock bands like Journey, Van Halen, The Cars, Queen, Journey. 

At this point I feel like we can expect every Coldplay album to have 1-3 pop music swings including a feature, 1-2 slower ballads, 1-3 more alt tracks, some interludes and a few random unexpected songs. 

 

I totally agree! But would I be wrong to say that this snippet would be great alongside "Fly On," from GS?

There was something funny around this line I can remember from this interview back in 2011 (or 12) that Chris wasn't sure if people from America would understand of what he's singing here or something like that, ''I'd rather be a comma than a full stop''

So I have a theory. Coldplay’s trademark for “MOTS” is in the “Application Published” phase and has been since February 4th , 2021. It normally takes 2 months for it to be registered. If so that would happen April 4th , 2021. After that it takes 2 more weeks for it to be certified. If everything goes smoothly then they should own “MOTS” by April 19th! Which would be perfect timing because of their planned upcoming livestream concert on May 22nd. Maybe just maybe they might reveal something about LP9...

I think they definitely will!  They are charging to watch this... I’m excited!

I’m thinking about 2 - 4 new songs if I’m completely honest, this is all sounding like pre-speculation of the 2011 gigs where we all wondered if new songs were going to be played and they played like 5 or 6 new ones 😂

I wonder if this performance will be like the 2015 iHeartRadio show where the only "new" parts of their set were the outfits, instrument decorations, and stage decorations. They debuted the AHFOD aesthetic, but that was it. No new songs until they played Amazing Day at the Global Citizen Festival.

Who knows, maybe they'll do the same thing? Just depends on whether or not they'll have at least one new song rehearsed, and whether or not they plan on releasing something relatively quickly after the Music of the Spheres trademark becomes theirs. I wouldn't be surprised if the album is almost done and they spent most of the past year finishing it, sometimes remotely to lockdowns and sometimes together.

Anyways, I'm wondering who the next collaboration will be with. Each of the last several albums included at least one collaboration, and they've done several EP/non-album collabs... I know a lot of people here are wanting the band to work with Dua Lipa, but will that actually come to pass?

What if Chris's Grammy appearance with Brittany Howard was a hint that she's appearing on Music of the Spheres? I for one would like that a lot, especially if the song is reminiscent of her solo work or Alabama Shakes.

just my opinion but I don't think Dua Lipa or any other big collaborators will join them for MOTS - and I think it's for the better. Sometimes the collaborators can hinder a song's greatness or change the song entirely. What I'd love though is the type of collaborations on Viva or Everyday Life, where an expert in the field or a much less famous person contributes something meaningful to the band. Everyday Life had Jacob Collier contributing his signature layered vocals and production on Church, Cry Cry Cry, and Everyday Life, Norah Shaqur's beautiful and haunting voice on Church and Bani Adam, Tiwa Savage's backing vocals on Eko, Femi Kuti's band and Stromae on Arabesque, the London VoicesChoir on When I Need a Friend, the Love Choir on BrokEn and in their live performances as well. The best collaborations are not when someone takes a large portion or feature in a song, but when their talents are used in little but really impactful ways.

 

Plus I do think that a new era will debut this May, but, I agree, not necessarily a new song. Although the Glastonbury empty and haunting nighttime grounds as well as the Pyramid Stage would be a really cool setting to debut a couple of space songs. I'd expect their typical Glastonbury hits to be played, but given how much the band loves live audiences and the lack of a live audience during the concert, we might have the opportunity to see more unknown and less played songs.

Uh yes they will, Dua Lipa joining Coldplay will happen as long as they confirm it but like we said we will have to wait and see.

I'm sorry but I just don't see it happening? Just because Future Nostalgia had a "space theme" and MOTS has a space "theme" doesn't mean that she's going to collaborate outright. If you ask me I'd put my money on the album having a Brian Eno influence based on all the evidence and clues I've seen.

They are you’ll see what happens, we don’t know what will happen because that’s my opinion and Coldplay and Dua Lipa will happen when the time is right period.
