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

I'll try to watch it. I live in Arizona, it should be on soon in my area.

May have to convince my husband to aid our daughter into bed with a story-session though.

Shoot, caught the tail end of the show but no Coldplay in sight. Must've missed them.

It's getting close to 7pm here however my station says a News program is up next at the 7pm slot. I would've had American Idol in that slot instead.

Least I can read this blurb about the episode. Hope it'll be on Coldplay's YouTube page soon.

I hope someone is able to record this episode of American Idol and will be willing to share it! I also hope that they will air the show in 5.1 so we can mess around with the mix!

It's different from the 15 sec clip. Seems like this is the first chorus. And the lyrics from Genius is spot on as well (at least for the part on the clip):

"I've got my hands up, shaking just to let you know

[Chorus]
That you've got a higher power
Got me singing every second
Dancing every hour..."

A new clip with video of Chris Martin at Worthy Form was just posted to tiktok. It’s about 25 seconds long.

To be clear, this clip features Chris singing Higher Power, so be sure to avoid it if, like me, you're waiting for the full song to drop before listening... I heard a full second before I realised what was going on and quickly closed it down!

Anyone else notice Rik is left off the liner notes? 

I think it's because of Max Martin's role in the song. We know he's still working because the photos he's shared on instagram hint at him working in the studio. I think it's just for this particular song.

Probably not the most positive thing to post but I'm starting to feel this album won't be the one for me. It seems Coldplay has a pattern of being very poppy, then very artsy. One for them, the record label and all that, and then one for the band.. basically playing whatever they want.

I like the artsy Coldplay. They got Max Martin to produce and that guy is responsible for just about every #1 hit in America but that's not really a good thing to me. In fact, one may argue that music here, at least in the top 50, has become very homogenized and all sounding very much similar to one another. I could be wrong, it might surprise me. But I wasn't a big fan of AHFOD compared to one of their more artsy albums and I have a feeling this album is "one for them, the label."

 

I'm sure I'll love the companion EP though. 🙂

When the band was literally apologetic for creating EL, I knew then that they no longer have the intentions of creating the kind of material that had me fall in love with their music. It’s now about being commercial and getting that number one hit song by using already established and mainstream formulas. I guess I’m officially an Oldplayer.

I can tell you oldplayers are NOT happy my friend!

Yeah, that's definitely a pattern, and it seems like a lot of long term fans prefer the more artsy albums.
I wouldn't necessarily call it one for the label, one for the band. Everyday life got hardly any promo and still sold quite well. Plus i'm pretty sure the band wouldn't release an album they didn't fully believe in themselves. With them being one of the biggest acts around they hold the cards rather than the label, I'm pretty sure any other label would be quick to sign them even if they decided to abandon the mainstream stuff. So I assume the band actually enjoy being more mainstream nowadays, including the big stadium tours, tv shows like American idol etc. Of course the label wouldn't discourage it either.

Personally, I love the 80s revival trend. I love some of coldplay's mainstream songs like something just like this, others like a sky full of stars not so much. On average, I also prefer their more artsy albums. With all the hype and promo that's been happening my expectations are definitely very high for the next album.

Lmao people jumping at expectations that this is going to be AHFOD 2.0 where they sell out - that's not going to happen. Max Martin is likely a one-off producer for the hit single because he doesn't really do albums, just hits. This concept was in the works since 2009, the post-Viva era - guess which other album was in the works by then? Everyday Life. There's a chance that Jon Hopkins might be coming back, as well as Brian Eno. There's a chance that the talented Jacob Collier might be on it - if so, then we're in for a great album.

Also, this is pretty inaccurate. The band creates whatever they want to because they love creating music, bonding with people, and connecting the world - even in their most inaccessible album, the one that sold the least, they expressed that very sentiment. Stop judging that they're all about the money because they're still clearly very passionate not about the money but about the music and the fans.

Also, it's 15 seconds. You can go ahead a judge the song when it releases on Friday but please refrain from unwarranted criticism and nitpicking until then. And please stop judging the album based on the first single.

In addition, I'd say this is the most confident the band have felt in years. The promotion, hype, and confidence with which they're speaking tells me that this might not be just a commercially acclaimed but a critically acclaimed album as well. Just a feeling.

I mostly agree. It's only a 15 second snippet, this song could be epic and we won't have any idea until Friday comes. Max Martin is likely the producer of this single and if an album follows then he likely has no involvement. They could easily treat us with some epic tracks, let's not jump to conclusions yet!

This.

As far as we're concerned the song could be much better than what we've heard. Perhaps it could be the next Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, which (in my opinion) is a very good thing, as that song gets pretty unstoppable by the end and gains a lot of (musical) momentum, if you will, almost like the ending of the 12" version of Temptation by New Order or the end of Station To Station by David Bowie.

Decided to share this however it might be pulled when the video officially launches.

In the meantime, I'm watching ABC'S GMA morning show with my camera in video mode and I'll try my best to share the recap of the Coldplay American Idol highlights of yesterday. The segment haven't aired yet but have a feeling they'll gush about it.

*POTENTIALLY FAKE BUT LINK REMOVED JUST IN CASE*
