I'm interested in the English translation of the lines sung in Korean, actually

Plot twist 

BTS sings the English lines

Chris sings the Korean ones

LEAK  

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

this song is literally a career high, after 23 YEARS no one gets to complain about this album anymore for me, NO ONE, i'll protect it with my whole existence 🔪

I like Coldplay trying new things but have never really been wild about their features. 
 

I prefer their features to be on an ep instead of a full release. I don’t get BTS and I’m happy for anyone who is happy. 
 

was just hopefully it would be like a one off like chain smokers thing.

Well, in the end it's all about melody and the feeling a song delivers. If the lyrics are good too - the iceing on the cake. But it's not that important to me.

Lets be all honest, the Higher Power lyrics are meh. But the song has a great vibe and is uplifting and addictive. Pretty sure there will be at least 2 or 3 songs on MotS with more depth to it. 

Anyway, if i'm in the mood for some decent lyrics i still can head over to stuff like Cast No Shadow, Amsterdam or (like mentioned before) Violet Hill.

I'm a bit worried by this possible BTS collaboration when considering Coldplay as a great live band. It better be a damn massive hit song or something weird that they never include in touring setlist or make another version for live performances, because obviously there will be will be a very few real live performances together with BTS on stage.

I'm not really enjoying the vocals coming from backing tracks in live performances, already Princess of China a bit annoyed me and there has been more and more prominent vocal tracks coming from backing tracks since that. Also Higher Power has a lot quite prominent backing vocals coming from a tape and I really hope this isn't going to be a trend for the future.

No hate against Coldplay trying out interesting new things, I just don't want their live performances to become a joke. If these vocal collaboration songs become important pieces in future setlist, they better work out how to make it genuine or make sure it's just one or two songs like that in setlist.

I'm not worried to see them explore new horizons but BTS is a band with a huge fanbase and that can be quite scary. I'm afraid that it could break the peaceful atmosphere of Coldplay fanbase...

The BTS collaboration is definitely happening but there is nothing to indicate that those lyrics (or the title) are true. These are "collaborative" lyrics websites meaning anyone can say anything they want.

The Coldplay fandom has A LOT of trolls and it's happened all the time. With the "3rd song" from Big Weekend, rumours have been at their peak regarding the collab. Lyrics wouldn't properly leak unless the song was imminent, but they haven't even properly promoted Higher Power yet (there could be lots of tv appearances to come, the video is not even out yet).

So let's be patient.

Having those words come from Guy and Will makes me think Big Weekend's mysterious nonbroadcasted song is NOT the BTS collaboration. A visit to the UK by BTS or even use of a BTS backing track/video seems like it'd be rather difficult to prevent from leaking, no?

Also, they've already had a big collaboration with Beyonce arguably one of the most famous artists already. Though with BTS there is a non-English possibility, but then Arabesque already has its French lyrics. 

Racking my brain about other things the band hasn't yet done, how about:

-Any of the boys (but most likely Will) singing lead vocals, or some kind of serious duet between Chris and another bandmember

-An instrumental. No major Coldplay hit and very few actual Coldplay songs are instrumentals except for LIT (which has some vocals) or intro/interlude tracks like MX, MMIX, Colour Spectrum.

-Relating to the previous, song involving some serious synthesizer-ing. Sure there are Coldplay songs with synths, but X&Y was the only album with any major exploration of how to use them in an interesting way. Coldplay has said in interviews that they really like this album Moon Safari by Air, which this song appears on - it was one of the albums that was "always playing when they met". This kind of use of synths = twiddling the knobs a LOT to get super interesting effects, fitting with the radio theme. Kraftwerk was just inducted into the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame, and they're a major inspiration too (so much so that of course Talk is sampled from their song Computer Love), so I could also a renewal of interest in that type of music. 

-Speaking of the radio theme, Radiohead's song National Anthem includes the use of samples of actual local radio playing wherever they are. I could see Coldplay doing something similar, except it would somehow use radio from all the planets. 

-An internally live-generative song like Radiohead's Everything In Its Right Place where as the song goes on they take samples of stuff Thom Yorke is doing and looping it extremely thoroughly, until at the end of the song it's only samples and no one playing live anymore. If anyone remembers the Dell perfrmance, Chris has those acoustic guitars that have launchpads attached to them, making it easy to trigger samples whilst playing guitar (Matthew Bellamy from Muse has a similar mechanism on his guitar but with a KAOSS pad). This is the exact technology that could lead to a song like this:

If the BTS collaboration is indeed true, it could be the 2nd single (and big hit) off the album. I'm not a fan of K-pop in general and couldn't understand the mass hysteria around it. However, the previous collaborations of Coldplay with another artist/s were, for the most part, good at least in my opinion so I'm definitely curious on how this song will turn out.

Agree. POC and HFTW are actively enjoyable! I especially love Jonny’s big guitar riff in POC. Fun is a nice song too.

There will be haters regardless but they have pulled off risky collaborations

@The Jordanator

Good catch here

 

makes sense, since the title of the song, My universe is a system, so it should not have a single planet associated with it, but if so, it would be the third single actually, by the order of the symbols, and possibly Human Heart if it is the second single by the similar triangle, and the earth is the planet that represents it

I don't think Human Heart was an official single though not yet at least

I prefer J-Pop over K-Pop any day. 

Me too. The sounds of K-Pop can vary but I personally tend to enjoy J-Pop a lot more. I'd rather see Coldplay collaborate with an artist like LiSA than BTS, that's for sure. Chvrches worked with J-Pop group Wednesday Campanella a few years ago for their song Out of My Head and I personally love that song.

Not gonna lie, I have low expectations for a BTS collaboration. I don't really like BTS's usual style of music. I think their fanbase is far more obnoxious on social media than that of any other popular artist. But hey, maybe it's not so bad. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Human Heart is really good. But it's not something I would expect to top the charts and get a lot of radio airplay. Maybe Coldplay are trying to go for a collaboration that has a good chance of being successful. And it would make sense if they don't end up releasing it for a few more weeks, just because BTS is currently promoting their new single Butter.

it happened with midnight, also I think they have already had too many presentations and interviews, it is my first "great" era, so I do not know if this type of strategy has been carried out before (promoting only one song without giving official notice of a new album), and I think that the acapella version that they have presented is not the final one that will be on the album but a different version 🤡🤡🤡

but it is very worrying, just by looking for Coldplay on twitter you will realize, most of the tweets are from Army only asking for collaboration, If there is such a collaboration, it will be the most popular and requested song of the era, and it's going to have more impact than the whole album in general, if my theory is true, infinity is in the middle (is too flashy, just like said collaboration), I am afraid to think that they do it, from what you say, be more successful, since with HP they did not do so well that we say
