Music Of The Spheres Volume 2 - We Might As Well...

Recommended Posts

Yes, I know Volume 1 has just come out. Yes, I know Volume 2 isn't officially confirmed yet. But I guess someone has to make this thread at some point, and I haven't started a 'big thread' in my whole time on Coldplaying.

MOTSv1 was a missed opportunity for many people. I liked the album, but many people are indifferent to or dislike the album. My old MOTS tracklist thread was hilariously wrong, although I did correctly guess the leaked lyrics were for Higher Power. Crucially, the two songs I expected the most, The Race and Lethal Drug, didn't appear, and neither did other predictions for Car Kids (which would have made sense, considering MOTS is set in the same universe as Mylo Xyloto), a new song called UFO which presumably had nothing in common with the MX version, and an alternate version of Us Against The World. Life Is Beautiful, a popular candidate, also didn't appear. There were also rumblings of a song called The Rocket. Perhaps some or all of these songs could appear on MOTSv2.

Another point to consider is the spheres themselves. It remains to be seen if MOTSv2 will use the same planets as Volume 1, or if we'll get a new set of planets. And what about the languages? And the cover art? Obviously we're a long way off - at minimum the album will come out around this time next year - but if there's one thing I love on these forums it's speculating and getting things completely wrong. I expect this thread will die before coming back to life later on, but I'm posting it now..

I know that more bands are using this new strategy today. I don't follow Imagine Dragons but I've seen they have released an Act I but I don't know how they re dealing the comunication of an Act II.

Normally second parts come after a few months, not years, so I guess we will know more about MOTS vol.2 quite soon. maybe right after LSG will come out as single (December?)

Anyone else think #1 (in alien kaotican) in every Coldplay music video referral to volume 1?? I just thought about it… 

That's a superb observation, thanks for mentioning it. I would've forgotten that detail.

I just hope for the 2nd volume Coldplay releases whatever plans they had for the Aurora planet song or musical mofitive piece... (I'm not entirely sure).

Coloratura is described as the afterlife, so... What is beyond it?

Coloratura is a planetary nebula, which means, in scientific terms, that it leads to new systems or even galaxies. So, Coloratura might be the gateway for new songs! (I hope).

Guy posted a picture with Eno, hopefully a hint to new music ?

Would be great. Maybe their next album is more viva-esque. As Everyday Life was intimate like Ghost Stories and MOTSI is sort of MX2.0, it could be that they turn backwards and making a circle. They saw AHFOD as an album that they've been working towards since the beginning, a 'highlight' and maybe it's the turning point in their timeline...

One thing that confused me is FFTF2024 and Coldplay's final album releasing in 2025. If FFTF is Finale For The Fans, but Coldplay (album) is in 2025, what is FFTF? And then it hit me...

Music Of The Spheres was announced alongside FFTF2024, in 2019. What if MOTS was meant to be released in 2020, but due to COVID everything was pushed back a year, moving FFTF to 2025?

That's EXACTLY what happened. People bought the "sell out" narrative so hard they forgot Parlophone's president confirmed months before that Everyday Life's successor would be commercial and arriving shortly.

As much as I know, this is just if. For me it could mean anything still. Could be still 2024 also. So unless there's some more information, it's just a big speculation.

Though, MOTS was maybe indeed released a bit later than initially planned. Although their label bosses stated before Everyday Life, that next album is coming soon, I'm pretty sure they didn't have a fixed date for MOTS at that point, so it's hard to tell, for how long it was actually delayed.

Some baseless speculation: if Coloratura is the nebula of the spheres, maybe the next set of planets will start from there. Maybe we'll get a Coloratura Part 2 or something like that...

That's actually a really good prediction! When listening to Coloratura, I always felt the ending was too abrupt, and that low note at the end after the piano arpeggios sounded like it transitioned to a new song. It would be amazing if all the volumes transitioned through each other like one big album. And that would give an explanation for the shorter length.

So, is MOTS vol. II counted as one of the remaining 3 records or it is part of a single big album together with MOTS vol. I? What do you think?

Almost certainly as one of the 3. If it was MOTS2 and 3 PLUS three more albums Coldplay will definitely not be able to finish by 2025.

Yes, that's right. And probably they won't be able anyway given the film, as Chris said in a recent interview...

Coldplay has already replied... though were still left in the dark, "The truth is still out there" is vague.

I hope the upcoming 'Beautiful' (Dont feel like spelling it correctly as Coldplay intended) music video gives us an Easter egg or so. They can digitally add things into the video. We'll see.

The extended version of Biutyful they played at the Weirdos concert was really cool. The song 'Weirdo' is set to be their best song ever, although that may just be marketing and it's just be a load of crap. Robots is another confirmed song. With two new songs confirmed, it will be interesting to see if their next release - MOTSv2 or not - is an EP or full album.

It will also be interesting to see if The Race is included.
