  1. Also I think HH will be on the album because Chris has got a heart-symbol on his jacket. At the Tiktok gig there were camera tracks around the circle. Makes me think they were filming more stuff.

  2. Hi, I am relatively new here. So, hello. I have been watching Phil's backstage tour from yesterday's Tictok. And thought if the postcards are from Coldplay...there might be a confirmation hidden in the tour. Why was he doing one? It felt a bit odd to me. I might be overthinking this, but here is what I noticed: - Several references to an arrival ('Band coming', 'Someone might be coming'...) - 'Down these GREEN steps.' I heard you, Phil. I heard you. - So, the arrows and taping on the floor is green to Phil - Guy's base had that neon green colour on it - When he s

  3. Well if it does link with Coldplay, and you said you had had your HP CD shipped at work address, then seems logical. But from what I've seen most of the recipients are not Coldplay fans

  4. After reading this, I was like, "of course there must be something behind this behind the scenes thing... how come I didn't think about it before?" Ahaha anyways, I went to check and there are 2 additional things that caught my attention: 1. Phil points the camera at everything that is fluorescent green with special attention to the reflective vest. Why would he do it? The postcards are fluorescent green... 2. He focused a lot on the piano on the backstage and I took some prints. There are 3 symbols that could be the same as the ones on the postcards. Check it below:

  5. And if I'm not wrong we have a precedent with The Goldrush having all the band singing and I think also Brian Eno helped a little with some vocals 😁

  6. It looks like people are really beginning to doubt that Coldplay is behind the postcards and poster in London. But I can't think of who else would be doing it at all. Maybe it's like those random monoliths people were building around the world. Whatever this is, it's pretty neat. Definitely feels like Coldplay because it's not too different from what they did when they teased Everyday Life. It's just awfully soon after they first launched the Alien Radio teaser site and social media accounts. And it's worth noting that the Alien Radio social media accounts have been silent for about a wee

  7. 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

  8. Hi guys, I made a cover of the new amazing Coldplay song, Higher Power. I have tried my best to get the most accurate notes and sound as Jonny Buckland plays it live. https://youtu.be/IOPZVhYJfgY Here is the tab link I posted on Ultimate Guitar for any interested. https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/coldplay/higher-power-tabs-3720116 Hope you enjoy it 🙂

  9. I just got two diff post cards at work today. The only interesting thing about this is I had the higher power cd shipped here. I have never order anything from I am 8 bit. Strange.

  10. There is also a moment where we see "H4", "Paladium" and "28/10". I don't understand the first 2 things, but the third could be a date? Finally there is another thing that I don't understand on the images we have seen of "they are coming". The order of the "letters" changes so it's not really a word. What do you think? Check it below:

  11. That could be case, I mean why would they use all that setup if Phil would be walking around he could've had an accident (I was kind of nervous during the concert because of that lol)

  12. Redditors recipients of postcards might have finally found what they had in common - they purchased something on a website called 'iam8bit', which seems to be heaven for gamers. So it's likely to be a videogames developing studio teasing a new game.

  13. 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...

  15. Yeah there are a couple threads on Reddit (one of which is the Coldplay subreddit) and most don’t think it’s Coldplay but possibly video game related. I don’t have anything shipped to work with the exception of the HP cd. That’s what isn’t adding up. I want to believe though haha.

  16. The style of art work doesn’t seem to match. I kept the post cards just in case it pans out to be Coldplay. Very random that it showed up at work.

  20. Taking place across four days for the first time in the event’s 18-year history (28 - 31 May 2021), Radio 1’s Big Weekend of Live Music 2021 will be the ultimate bank holiday destination, with over 100 live performances for fans to enjoy. Around 50 of the performances will be brand new live sets recorded exclusively for Big Weekend 2021, with five filmed on location around the UK and more to be recorded in the BBC’s Radio Theatre. Coldplay perform at Whitby Abbey in North Yorkshire, the centuries-old monastic ruins that formed the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, while Ed Sheeran’s

  21. That's right! Also, the graphics with lyrics on the background have the Higher Power cd colors. I even thought about the posibility of having several EPs this era, each one representing one Sphere, instead of one big album. I don't know why that came to my mind. I'd love to have an album tho 😄

  22. Agree, it does have a side-b, hidden track vibe... it’s so simple and intimate it could totally work under that idea...

  23. For those thinking that the new album was going to be a full-blown pop record with no redeeming songs, I think Human Heart is proof enough that this era will surprise some if not many people. I myself though that the collaborations in this album would be more generic and pandering to the public but I love these little features, which is part of the reason why I loved EL so much. It's also interesting, because no matter your opinion on the song - the lack of other band members being one of it - I don't think anyone can bash them here for being safe or pandering, because this song is

  24. they didn't, they just aren't sure either. I'm 50/50 too: it's alien-themed, the hexagone appeared at their Worthy Farm performance too, the timing fits that too, and Phil was online on Twitter earlier and he didn't deny it. But on the other hand, the postcards seem to have been sent to gamers (Coldplay did partner with a gaming company recently), it all seems fairy USA centred, and Hulu/Disney+ are reportedly making an Alien TV show thingy. So I'm really not sure

  25. As much as i enjoyed Human Heart, i dont think it has potential becoming the new single. Why ? - It's not that kind of material you release during summer, probably something you would give away before december with all the christmas stuff coming up. No, my bet is we're getting something different to Higher Power. Modern and radio friendly but more melancholic, like they did with Paradise on MX. And i'm sure the next song will be even bigger than Higher Power and will definitely carry them until the release of MotS. Just my two cents...have a nice sunday folks, cheers✌

  28. Oh, wow! 😮 That unknown song sounds really cool, even though it's just a little sketch. And yes! I hear Jon Hopkins all over that ambient intro music. It totally sounds like something he would create with Coldplay.

  29. The first verse of Human Heart reminds me a little bit a that mysterious song in the soundcheck during the AHFOD Tour in Singapore. I don't know if even was, but wow, I so excited for the studio version. And the intro of the show (MOTS for now) Jon Hopkins, its you again? 😭💜 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Yjq7h4HfoM

  31. I'm really thinking that Music of the Spheres intro is probably going to be the first track on the album, just like Mylo Xyloto before Hurts Like Heaven. The first proper song will probably be Higher Power. It sounds so cool, like a combination of MMIX and the O intro in Always In My Head. Jon Hopkins probably had something to do with this song because it definitely sounds like something he would have worked on. Human Heart was really good. It's like When I Need A Friend but without the Gregorian chant vibes. Very haunting, very touching, very ethereal. Far more experimental than I expect

  33. 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.

  34. I've been listening to a bunch of New Order for the first time over the last few days and Coldplay could learn a thing or two from their songwriting if they want to do 80s synthpop. Alternatively, Coldplay could take inspiration from Depeche Mode. They already did with Anton Corbijn's alternate music video for Viva la Vida because it's a tribute to the video for Enjoy The Silence (also directed by Anton Corbijn). And I know for a fact that Chris is a fan... https://pitchfork.com/news/rock-hall-2020-depeche-mode-honored-by-arcade-fire-coldplay-chvrches-zz-top-members/

  35. That would mean that they're not exploring the genre enough. The songs don't have to be poppy and upbeat like Take On Me or Boys of Summer. They can also get inspired by more mature forms of songwriting like Talking Heads or Talk Talk. This is just my opinion, but I rather have a Coldplay album with 4-6 80s-inspired tracks than only doing one track that sticks out like a sore thumb. I like when artists take the risk.

  36. Well, I hate to repeat myself again and again, but I think what doesn't let the band embrace and submerge into a certain genre is their habit of following the trend and just dabble superficially. I remember when Adventure of a Lifetime came out, and I was very hopeful about AHFOD. The song was very upbeat, and I loved the outro. We had already heard Amazing Day at the Global Citizen festival, but for some reason I assumed that it was gonna be a non-album song, and that their new sound was gonna be closer to R.A.M by Daft Punk or Justice. Sadly, I was way off. The album didn't have anothe

  38. I read some of the comments on social media about the new track from what seems like younger fans (do they "stan" Chris now? lol) and it made me think...do they get teased in school about liking Coldplay? That used to be a rite of passage.

  40. I can't help feeling a tad alienated (if you'll excuse the pun) with regard to the new era. Like when AHFOD was released, only a bit better this time because EL gave me confidence that they can still be great - if, like @nvdmmsaid above, they choose to. Not gonna lie, even if there are parts of the song that I like (e.g. the Eastern Asian chant vibes and the intro, and some other bits), I can't help but feel it's not the same band as the one I fell in love with.

  41. Can't help but find myself turning to the 2001 live coverage of coldplay at glastonbury, after having heard Higher Power a couple of times. That opening pad, those crashing opening sounds of Politik... always makes me a bit nostalgic after Coldplay puts out something new. Higher Power will grow on me as well, but the sounds of AROBTHH are just too deeply rooted inside me to ever be topped I guess....

  42. 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
