  1. "A melodic orbit in three parts" I wonder what that could mean... perhaps the album is divided into three groups of three or four songs, each.

  2. I think it's the one of the best songs on that album 😄

  3. About the still possible collab with BTS, I've just posted this on the subreddit: I was just discussing on the Coldplay discord with some friends and just came to the best possible conclusion for this whole collab controversy. Coldplay could release "My Universe", or whatever the song might be called in the end, as a solo version and release a remix of the song, now featuring BTS. Lots of artists drop their own version of the song and later release it again featuring a bigger artist on it. The Weekend did that with "Blinding Lights" (remix features Rosalía) and "Save Your Tears" (rem

  4. Great post! That guitar pedal is definitely interesting! Giving some very interesting opportunities to mix up the sound a bit. Also I have felt like they are definitely still recording, maybe changing up a few things after being able to rehearse and play in live setting. Also rehearsing and playing new songs live could help to decide on tracklist and inspire writing more new songs of course. Considering there still seems to be some time until the release of the whole project, I guess it's quite sensible to still work on it. About the album being poppy. It probably will be, but I gues

  5. This is a pretty realistic prediction. I also agree MOTS to HP is sort of a funky transition and reminds me of how VLV noticeably has a different track 1-track 2 transition between the album and live shows (LIT -> COL vs LIT -> Violet Hill). I feel like every album that people have hated has had "something for the Oldplayers" - UATW/UFO/Charlie Brown, Fly On/the guitar solo in True Love/Ghost Story/Oceans, AHFOD/Everglow/Amazing Day/Up&Up, and much of EL (esp title track, Trouble in Town, Daddy). Ironically, there's sort of a weird non-overlapping set of populations who like so

  6. I think we all know that MOTS will be an album, but I wonder how they will release music during this era. Gorillaz for example just did that "Song Machine" series where they collaborated with a bunch of artists and released EP's that eventually were put into one album, or "season" like a TV show. There's also precedent for Coldplay releasing songs that don't make the next album (Atlas, Moving to Mars, Goldrush). I wonder if the MOTS era will have more to offer than just the singles and albums. At this point, HP (as Kaotica) and Human Heart, and the MOTS intro seem very likely for the alb

  8. I see this BTS collab being quite possible in one way or another, given there is so many hints about it. I'm just hoping it's worth it, because BTS truly is just a product, not a real music act. So in this case this will be quite a risky collaboration, if this song really is good enough and doesn't leave a bad mark on the new album. If Coldplay can make it work well and seem natural, I'd be very impressed. But on the other hand, even if it's just an average song, it probably will boost the finance of Coldplay anyway. I was getting worried after these recent TV performances, the amount of

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. Watching the Red Nose mini-concert today I couldn't help thinking that something big is coming our way. The boys are rehearsing a lot - first at the London Palladium, now at the Alexandra Palace... That also leads me to think that the album is most likely done (if it were not, they would mostly be at studios and have the majority of their gear there)... I also noticed that for today, beside Phil's filming the mini-concert, the setup was to film professionally something else... Let's wait and see...

  12. This acoustic performance on Jimmy Fallon had definitely nice vibes, but probably at this point fans are getting already a bit tired of the promotion of Higher Power. Waiting for something new!😄 About this performance. Really nice to see so many people on stage with them playing and singing. I didn't have time to look too much into it for now, I hope these guys were actually playing for real and it was performed mostly live. These Chris' nice little harmonies on the last chorus are unfortunately coming from tape and some parts of choir too probably, but overall at first watch this perform

  13. I must admit I'm not feeling entirely hopeful about the new era. But I think people are forgetting that Music of the Spheres as a concept started during the Viva days and that all the reused terms (Alien Radio) and reused set ideas and costumes from the MX tour seem to confirm this. Just like the MX and Viva eras, Jon Hopkins is allegedly back (from his reddit AMA) and that we've heard only one pop song (HP) while hearing another in the vein of Everyday Life (HH) and a weird ambient intro that sounds like the Escapist, MMIX, and Always in My Head combined. People are also overlooking

  14. Couple things have stood out over the past few days : 1. Chris' discussion of Max Martin seems to suggest the album will be very poppy, which I think we already were expecting. He basically said that Max is helping members of the band realize they can make songs that are more pop. Hard to know if he was talking about Higher Power or this whole era. 2. The band is still recording? Chris said he had a song for Max Martin just the other day, and it seems like they're doing their interviews from the same building where they could be wrapping up the record. So maybe MOTS wasn't finished

  15. Sorry double post but wtf is this ??? Coldplayxtra on Twitter => Chris: “Right now I live in fear of being told off by Phil, who’ll be like ‘you shouldn’t have told anybody about that, we’re gonna surprize people’ - but if you like extremely heavy death metal jazz fusion, you’re going to like what we’re doing” PopCrush

  16. Last weekend I was one of the lucky winners of the Higher Power Spaceship event in Amsterdam, which I have mentioned earlier in this topic. We did a Coldplay escape room, really fun, entirely about Coldplay. I remember I read on a paper the name 'Troblyganus' or 'Troblygonus', which was marked as a planet. I don't know whether this is inside information or just a made up name, but it is a fun rumour to spread.

  17. At Big Weekend they were using in hear monitors instead of speakers for most of the performance to make sure the songs weren't heard from most people. They would have been extra careful when it comes to a new song and despite people outside recording most of the set, nobody said anything about a new song. So I highly doubt anybody heard the new song properly, or no one could tell it was a BTS collab. If it was the BTS song, either it would have been noticeable (and so people would have talked about it as they leaked the setlist) or actually they would not have been able to hear the lyrics

  18. 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

  21. Yeah basically agree with everything being said here. What feels most likely is we get some alternative tracks drawing from other 80's artists like Talking Heads, Depeche Mode & some maybe even influence from the Eno Eras (weird spacey noises, different time signatures, more Jonny). But we also know Max Martin could be a credited producer on every song, which likely means more clean production and pop sounds (Guy even said in a recent interview they're focusing on "studio techniques" which sounds like a pop production euphemism). On top of that, we have confirmed help from Jacob Collier (h

  25. This entire This entire era seems so much like MX that I'm almost certain that the album will be more like MX/VLV than AHFOD/GS. The entire project seems so ambitious and well-planned and structured, and they seem to be going back to those concepts from 2008-2012: short transitional tracks, songs fading into each other, great electronic ambience, a more diverse sound, even the use of clothing and stage design, as well as the comeback of song titles from those particular eras.

  26. Alright, I finally got to watch it. Very good performance, I loved it so much. The visuals were spectacular and as any Coldplay fan probably knows, they love that kind of stuff. They sounded amazing and I loved how much fun they were having with it. It's not Glastonbury without a ton of rain so it's fitting that they had to play in the pouring rain... as well as to a ton of Worthy Farm cows 😂 The Music of the Spheres ambient intro was really cool. Sounds like a mixture of MMIX and the bit of O that plays at the beginning of Always In My Head. Higher Power sounded better than ever. The Sci

  27. After today's Glastonbury performance, I think it's fairly obvious that the title of the new album is MUSIC OF THE SPHERES since the intro featured a voice quoting that very phrase. I also think the new song "Human Heart" could have easily been included in EVERYDAY LIFE. It was a beautiful ballad. I really am getting good vibes about where the band is now. Their new music is terrific. Welcome back Coldplay.

  28. That acoustic live version of Higher Power was surprisingly good, better than the acoustic studio version ! I loved Will's piano work and those little high notes at 3:10 ! It gives a more colorful atmosphere, close to MX acoustic songs. And man ... This acoustic version of Hurts like Heaven was flawless. One of their absolute best songs without a doubt.

  29. Well guys, It could be that I'm a bit drunk or particularly in love with humanity tonight but guess what? Coldplay are the ones we learned to know during the last 20 and more years. We know their value as musicians, singers, performers, sognwriters and so on. And we like them right for those things. Even if I'm a bit disappointed by their poppyish path, I will always recognize that behind their production, there's a huge work of putting toghether ideas, trying them and figure out what could sound like putting those things inside, just like every other musician in the world. But thei

  31. I really don’t know how to feel about this, I just really hope Max Martin is trying to be more experimental and is trying some new sounds himself, working with the band to create something bigger than them, and himself; as in: I hope he isn’t trying to make something formulaic, but that he is pushing his own boundaries to grow too... let’s hope the guys are strong enough to not “follow the crowd” blindly and stand strong with their convictions on what sounds they like!

  33. I know that it might be a coincidence but all 4 songs (Always in my Head, O, Music Of The Spheres, Higher Power) are in G Minor and the female choir of Always In My Head/O is synchronized perfectly if you layer it over Music Of The Spheres. It works even better if you paste the "OoOoOh don't ever let go". Dunno, Music Of The Spheres might be actually an evolution of Always In My Head, kinda like how Bani Adam was an evolution of Kaleidoscope.

  34. So we know that something will be divided in three parts. We also saw Chris running in the end of the video. Could it be a short movie with three music videos ? And the second part could be ... The Race ? Let me dream 😂

  35. I noticed that the Music Of The Spheres intro from the Higher Power video is on exactly the same key as Always in My Head and O, you can literally paste the one over the other and they match. I pasted the "Ooooh don't ever let go" vocal from O and I can also hear some elements matching in timing on where they should be from the O Instrumental to the Music Of The Spheres intro. I don't know if that says anything, but atleast my guess is that it's the opening interlude from the album, like Mylo Xyloto was on MX, and how O was incorporated to Always in my Head and vice versa (O is essentially a s

  36. that's awesome @MosesTheMarshmallow!!! I'll check y'all out. And yes @Coeurlithat's helpful! It took me a super long time to understand what the heck AHFOD was about & I had no idea MX told a story until Coldplay said so. I guess I've been hoping for a while that if the band did a "concept album" that the concept would be really apparent and clear. So now we have this "planet" concept and space, but it feels like it's going to another album where you kind of have to do your homework and piece to the loose/general themes together to get it. I guess I was hoping for more than "you're a

OhMYGOD you guys I think I just figured out the "isomorphism" thing right after posting that I had googled that concept during the first alien radio days and i was like "uh okay i know why i didn't do more maths" BUT hear me out hear me out Here's the definition on wikipedia: AND here are some pictures when googling the term: Am I crazy or does this also remind you of: - The general message in Coldplay which is "you and I are the same and equally important" - Higher Power lyrics : the universe CONNECTED So that would mean that the radio mess

  38. Pretty much all of the clips have been "identified" so far as being connected either to Coldplay in general (references to Fender, drums, Yellow etc) ; the concept of Music of the Spheres ; Space (could be about the general context of MOTS or about the HP launching event) ; or Higher Power (there are a couple with some higher power lyrics and there's the Swedish one which is likely a reference to Max Martin). The Alice in Wonderland one is allegedly a signature from the creative agency Rabbit hole. Some have not been interpreted fully yet. For instance there's one about isomorphism? I def

  39. during the BBC Radio 1 interviews they mentioned playing a song that was unlike anything they'd ever done, which was also Will's favorite song. Last time they said that, we got Arabesque (something they said they'd never done) and Champion of the World (Will's favorite). We'll see.

  40. If it's a collaboration of some sort then some of the addresses could also have been pulled from the Coldplay store. Fortnite has hosted a few music events over the last couple of years already, e.g. Ava Max launched her album on the platform last year and BTS premiered a music video on there too. A few concerts have also taken place. These collabs are very lucrative, I read that Travis Scott earned $20million from his Fortnite concert! Something else I came across when looking for a connection between Fortnite and Coldplay is the Sensorium Galaxy, which is supposed to launch in Q2 2

  41. If you follow the r/TheyreComing subreddit, you'll see it's looking increasingly likely it's gaming related, and more specifically Fortnite. Some Fortnight streamers have received a DVD+ DVD player (!) with a video showing some drone shots + crop circles. And some people found one of the symbols in Fortnite: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheyreComing/comments/nl8j1z/someone_found_this_symbol_in_fortnite/ So the MOTS theories can be buried now I think. If this was Coldplay, they would not have sent those DVDs to Fortnight streamers. https://twitter.com/InTheLittleWood/status/13975
