I’m excited for this track, the only clip we’ve got sounds kind of underwhelming, but the ending, when the “biutyful” tracks off, gives me major Sigur Rós vibes... and I’m living for it!! I’m hoping it’s going on that direction! Please!! 🙏

Indeed I hope it's not just a rehash of Cry Cry Cry. >_>

Surprise at how much I liked this.

But whyyyyyy the voice at the start??? Completely ruins it. Should have come in in the second verse to accompany Chris. But argh.

The trippy slow beat is really cool.  It feels like somewhat of a concept song and I like it.  CP is never going to be one thing and this song is further proof of that.  I even like the high pitched parts.  An improvement from the Everyday Life album.

Everyday Life is so clean and honest

Could have been a highlight of the album, instead it’s going to be an easy skip. Wishing for an instrumental version, or maybe a demo version on a single - anything but the stupid synth voice that renders many 1980s tracks unlistenable today.

The opinion on this song is very divided among Coldplay fans from what I've seen, which I find really interesting. It's mostly about Angel Moon/Angelina/Chris' distorted voice. You either absolutely hate it, which ruins the song or you're unbothered by it, so you actually are able to enjoy the song.

I actually fall in the latter :laugh3:  For me it's the most surprising song off the album. At first I was like "wtf is this what am i hearing" and then during the song I started thinking "Oh wait i am oddly liking this!" :laugh3: 

I really like the "love me love me love me" bit, very rnb. The song got stuck in my head, in fact i had it in my head waking up in the morning. I just really like the overall vibe and so yeah, surprisingly, I quite like this!

Don't know whether they'll play it live though. If they do, I hope they don't just put the distorted backing track and try to make a completely different version instead, that would be cool. Otherwise I don't necessarily mind not hearing it live, it's a great song for the studio album and it's a very chill moment.

I can't get over the last bit of the song when Chris starts singing love me love me love me again around the 2min mark. God, that's gorgeous. 

Would love an acoustic version of this...

I absolutely love this one. The pitched voice in my opinion is to be intended as an alien voice, and that matches perfectly with the album concept. Love is an universal feeling, not only a human one. Fantastic song

Yeah but I think it should be an accompaniment and not a duet...

I actually love this song. A lot. It’s the song I’ve played most (outside the singles that releases ahead of time). The alien voice works surprisingly well, and Chris’ vocals mesh very well in ways that it shouldn’t. 
 

The chorus, like the song, is simplistic. It’s unique but it doesn’t try too hard. Really, really fun song that hinges between pop and some sort of avante garde mix.

I'm conflicted! I actually really like the high-slidey part of Angel Moon's voice, ie the bit that shows up in the Overtura preview. I don't quite like the voice in the verses...it just sounds like a chipmunk when they could've invited a female singer or had one of Chris's children sing it. 

The overall instrumental is quite interesting, with a lot of electronic/backwards sounding stuff. But it's not electronic for the sake of seeming poppy (like ASFOS or SJLT) which is sort of how you know they DID think about this track intentionally.
