  1. Thank you to everyone for the support regarding our Twitter being suspended. We are working with Coldplay to get it reinstated.

  2. Well, with all these "what if" speculations Coldplayers also must be thinking: What if... I got it wrong And no poem or song Could put right what I got wrong 🤔

  3. I hope not... As for the leak discussion, i honestly expect it to leak very soon because that's just how things are - CDs get shipped to retailers and stores and someone somewhere opens one and uploads the song. It's virtually impossible to stop a physical (not digital-only) release from a high enough profile artist from leaking beforehand nowadays. The label is very serious about it, but they were equally serious about the most highly anticipated album of 2005 not leaking beforehand, to the point where journalists were only allowed to listen and review at the label's headquarters

  5. I wonder that too. It will be interesting to see! I really hope they actually play a bit synths live in this song and hopefully put guitar higher in the mix in the parts where it's possible. They have always managed to make the songs work in live performances more or less. For example Something Just Like This in live was kind of a positive surprise for me.

  6. I assume an Audio or Lyric Video will be on YT for Higher Power this Friday and a MV in the future, maybe in two weeks or next month?

  7. That would be amazing, having in count that I always enjoyed UFO but also thought it was too short and I wanted more. In fact, the final of the song just feels like when you read on the screen "to be continued..." in one episode of your favorite series.

  8. Not waiting for the leak to be honest! I already heard the 2 snippets (1st one was 15 seconds, 2nd one was 26 seconds long, so I already know 41 seconds of the new single in fact) and now I'm just looking forward and waiting for Higher Power to be released and stream it this Friday According to that billboard in The Hague that was only discovered today, the countdown ends at 1AM on Friday for The Netherlands! So here we'll have to be patient a little bit longer than expected

  11. I agree with this, yet Birds is a BRILLIANT song whether you like it or not. IMO (one of) the best on AHFOD.

  12. If they are not hypocrite they will only tour if they can truly become carbon-neutral. And I think its a beautiful thing they commited to that. They wouldnt do a big statment like that unless they can achieve it

  13. Will they tour again ? Yes. The message during EL was that they did not want to tour that album and especially they wanted to reconsider the way that they organize their tours, over environmental concerns. They will definitely tour again. Now I'm not sure they're going to deliver so well on their environmental promises given that the Xylobands seem to be potentially making a comeback (based on Xylobands social media), but we'll see! They clearly intend to have a big tour for LP9 so it will be interesting to see what they change or implement during that tour.

  14. After seeing Jonny in that American Idol video, I feel confident he has an amazing part in the new song. I just know he has something up those green sleeves of his. Especially when he turned and looked at the camera like that and raised his eyebrow when he mentioned Higher Power. It could just be me wanting to hear more from him, but he actually seemed kind of excited in that video, like he has a secret he wants to share.

  15. there are Coldplay lyrics that are a work of art and others that only talk about dancing and being happy that the truth is that they have nothing artistic other than the rhythm.

  16. Super pumped for them to explore the 80's pop/synthwave sound. I much prefer that sound over generic pop. We all knew this was going to be a big commercial album but that doesn't mean we won't get any other stripped back tracks. Can't wait to see what the era unfolds!

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. I don't think it's leaked yet, folks. But the next 48 hours are likely. Remember not to post ANYTHING related to the leak. I'm going to keep an eye on the discord since I love gobbling leaks up (if they're high quality). Otherwise we're just a few short days away !

  20. Yeah I think so, I think it would be a great hint if they confirmed it for next couple of weeks or next month but I’m thinking that if they would do the remix of Higher Power it would be BTS

  21. Has anyone told lady gaga's fans yet that there's another artist using the space theme for their album?! 😄 Theoretically, they could perform together at the brit awards, who knows...

  22. This was very hard! I did a rating, but felt that it was crap. I want to do the songs justice and listen to each album from start to finish and the rate them. So will take some time before you have my ratings. 😳

  23. Here is an article about it if you meant that one. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-50490700.amp It will be interesting to see what changes they come up with and if they can achieve some of their goals.Ideas and plans are huge I guess. They want to be carbon neutral, use solar electricity and do not want to be sustainable only but actively beneficial to the planet. I wonder how that works out in the end. They already have their one tree planted merchandise collection in the store and have a partnership with the ocean cleanup project. Small steps, better than

  25. Hello everyone! This is unrelated but given that this is an active thread on Coldplay news I figured I would post here as well. Coldplaying's main twitter account has been suspended (horrible timing!). But we do have a backup! So if you're on Twitter, make sure to also follow @Coldplaying_HQ Thank you

  30. People comparing this with Birds...how? Birds is one of the best songs on AHFOD so from listening to the snippet, I don't think HP is even close! Haha. Anyway, I think EL spoilt me. I was hoping we would be taken by surprise and the boys would have gone a different route with this album but it looks like we are getting a AHFOD 2.0 instead of a MX 2.0. Ah well. Hope to be proven wrong. Oh and before anyone jumps on my back, just want to say, I enjoyed the snippet - it's catchy, it's pop Coldplay. But I was just hoping more of a ALIENS/All I Think About is You vibes instead of AO

  32. So i already love the song despite only hearing that 25 second snippet....it's been stuck in my head. It's brilliant. I'm biased because I myself am an absolute fan of HLH and Birds so obviously this is another win for me I can't wait to hear the full song on Friday and I'm really rooting for it to take over the world If this one doesn't, then what would??????

  34. In other news... Anyone wake up to see how the Gaga fans are accusing Coldplay of plagiarism? Gotta say it was nice to wake up to a good laugh! Anyone remind them MX came out way before Chromatica? lol... Also, they're under the impression Kaotica is the name of the album copying "Chromatica" when actually it seems to be one of the "spheres" from MOTS

  35. I love the way you think. You are an oldplayer at heart but also are accepting of the “pop/newplay” sounds. I have been a fan and member since 2004 and the Coldplay direction has been a rollercoaster ride. Once you learn to evolve with the band, you will enjoy anything our band puts out. We need songs to dance and sing to right now... and this new album will hopefully deliver 🙂

  36. Tbh I think I will love this new single and the new album even if it follows Higher Power direction. Right now charts are full of catchy songs and I like a bunch of them, I mean, they put you in a good mood and make you sing out loud. Being that the case why not enjoying those kind of songs but from my favorite band! Maybe it won't be a musical 'master piece' but for sure I will freaking enjoy singing it in the car! And I still have old Coldplay songs for those 'Oldplay' days 🤩

  39. I'm just hoping there's some sort of resemblance to the X&Y sound in LP9. Moving To Mars is a great example of a non-Oldplay song that's like that. It reminds me of What If. But I also want something like Talk that manages to be a guitar-based anthem as big as something from MX but still has a space rock atmosphere to it. And something like White Shadows or Low that lets the individual band members shine without being hidden by layers of synths, but still has a space rock atmosphere (and real drums). I'm probably asking for too much, but I'm not giving up hope that there will be at le

  40. First off, Ive been on this forum since pre- X&Y release, but have been a lurker for the past couple album cycles and don't post much these days. But Ive followed the boys from the very beginning. So, its been a treat to say that Ive grown with them musically and in life. I always wished they'd had gone the full alternative/rock route, as their earlier stuff indicated that they would be pretty damn good at it! Look, I love Buckland's guitar, I think he's a subtle genius, and wish they would fully unleash him, i.e. One I Love(2003 Live). But Ive come to accept that they just aren't go

  41. I get not liking it but I don’t understand why anyone was expecting rock for this lead single produced by prolific pop producer Max Martin (especially when Coldplay have always been pop anyway, the way people talk about rock here you’d think Coldplay’s first three albums were really heavy or something) i like that it’s got a HLH/Birds vibe but with an 80s touch, hopefully there’s some great rifs on there and maybe some spacey type touches to it too
