  1. Ok, so we have the full tracklist now... Music of the Spheres I Higher Power Humankind Alien Choir Let Somebody Go Human Heart People of the Pride Biutyful Music of the Spheres II My Universe Infinity Sign Coloratura The placement of MOTS2 feels weird to me, I'm starting to think we might get two albums of twelve songs: Music of the Spheres Vol.1 - Tracks 1-8 (Orbit 1) / Tracks 9-12 (Orbit 2, Part 1) Music of the Spheres Vol.2 - Tracks 1-4 (Orbit 2, Part 2) / Tracks 5-12 (Orbit 3) It's better than relea

  2. With all this BTS talk I DREAMT of BTS last night. They were running a promo where fans could win pitch black Nissan Micras wrapped in some sort of a coccon. And they personally brought the cars to the winners...in a helicopter. Not kidding. p.s. I don't listen to BTS, lol

  3. Too much internet for today, I better get some rest... I'll dream of the full version of Coloratura (can't wait, the snippet sounds awesome, kind of X&Y vibes to me lol)

  4. Personally I don't mind it. They've done this before with Til Kingdom Come (+), Colour Spectrum, and BrokEn. - at least it looks more mysterious than cringe/pandering. But, it does make tracklisting and naming songs hassle. "Ok we're going to play a new song next, it's titled♾️" "Yeah dude, my favorite Coldplay song is✨"

  5. I'm slowly starting to like the album cover more, reminds me of the minimalistic artwork of their early eras. This fan-made version with stars look so much better though, Pilar did us dirty.

  6. I think I am the only one theorizing in the form of Coloratura, as it seems that it is not a planet at all (I thought it was a galaxy, but I think it really is a nebula), second, the duration of the song itself and that it is called precisely the same as where it comes from, and whatever song the album is and apparently, and Coloratura is far with respect to the other planets, so it also seems that it is an "entry" for the next volume if really MOTS is divided into 3 parts

  7. I'm wondering if it's possible to limit discussions of the My Universe leak to a dedicated thread? These seem like spoilers as compared to a lot of us who would rather wait/anticipate as this thread was mostly intended to do? What do y'all think!

  8. I haven't listened to it myself yet but my fear is that it sounds like Chris featuring on another song. That's what most Coldplay Pop songs sound like. I can't really get angry though because the band sign off on everything, so if it's what they want then so be it. I don't have high expectations for the song but hopefully it charts well for them. If not, then they should see a continuing trend here 😅

  9. The collab is OK but what pisses me off is there's almost NO JONNY in there. Same with HP. This Max Martin guy seems to hate guitars or something, he is hidding Jonny under a ton of keyboards...

  10. I gotta agree that when it comes to POP Coldplay, they seem to have hit the mark with Higher Power and My Universe, I do prefer their more rock oriented stuff but with these two I feel like they finally got the hang of making pop, a bit as if they're finally being able to do what they wanted to initially do with MX and AHFOD

  11. It's weird because I was getting good vibes from the individual snippets of My Universe, and when the trailer snippet came I was sure the song would be fantastic. After listening to the whole thing today I'm disappointed and that's coming from someone who likes ASFOS and can live with SJLT (because of the outro that screams Coldplay). My Universe sounds like a BTS song with Chris being featured and not the other way around - and especially not Coldplay. The entire time I was waiting for the band to kick in or at least an explosive outro... It never came. The lyrics are cringy and generic,

  12. This. I definitely can’t understand how they love this new sound and hate something like X&Y, which is miles better in my opinion. I guess they really changed the way they view themselves. It’s a different band, and thats fine…

  13. Just listened to the leak. Overall I think it's quite catchy, there are some nice guitars (they are actually pretty noticeable in the mix, at least on the first part of the song), and the drums sound much better than most of the pop songs they've released. In my opinion, this is one of their best collaborations, it's not cringeworthy as PoC, HFTW or SJLT (hate that song). With all of this being said, I still don't think they need to do this kind of stuff. I wouldn't mind if they released this song as a separate single or something like that, it's not a bad song, but Coldplay is a great ba

  14. For me, My Universe sounds more like a Chris collaboration with BTS. I can't see the other members.

  15. Agree with that. They are much better than the pop on AHFOD. Think it's my favorite collab. And ONE of my favorite post Ghost Story singles. Like Up & Up, Daddy and Champion of the world are still way better songs imo.

  16. I just read this on Discord Perhaps Coldplay originally intended to release information today because The first man landed on the moon July 20th

  17. Yeah that's what I was thinking as well. Why not put the entire galaxy/nebula (or whatever it's supposed to be) on the artwork? It seems like it could be some kind of bridge for what's coming next, maybe?

  18. Btw, I love MU. Yes, it’s not a classic coldplay song, but it sounds very good, especially the chorus. Imo, it’ll be a massive hit

  19. This albums artwork and theme has built up for this album to be like Coldplay's masterpiece and very arty and "Pink Floydish", which I think they would be capable of pulling off. I just wish they could stick to one genre and just release that vein they have within them. I still have very high hopes for this album though, the snippets sound interesting! ☺️

  20. Curious about your opinion! Essentially, I have a really hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Coldplay genuinely seems to be content about the music they create these days. Any mainstream artist could have released 'My Universe' and absolutely no person would have associated it with a Coldplay song, even fans who know what to look for. A song like A Sky Full Of Stars was EDM / Pop, but still contained Coldplay-like elements such as the chord progression of the piano, the acoustic guitar, the electric guitar, etc. Thoughts?

  21. Speaking of Coloratura, what are everyone's expectations for that song? I looked up the word and found out that Coloratura is a style of singing most commonly used in Operas. Based on what I've read I suppose in the trailer it's the snippet starting at 1:36. Since they describe it as a piano-led anthem, will it be instrumental only? Or maybe involve chorals? Chris as an opera singer is too much for my imagination. 🙂 Or maybe it's just a word that they liked the sound of and it'll mostly be a regular pop/rock song?

  22. We're such critics 😛 I like it too... not perfect but it'll def be a huge hit 🙂

  23. yes that's true. the snippet in MOTS trailer is very cool but actually is only the end of the song. the song itself is a bit disappointing and repetitive...that's too bad after being hyped up with the snippet

  24. just listened somewhere 😍 so the snippet from the trailer is actually the outro

  25. Well... you got some of them right. Music of the Spheres Higher Power Human Heart Biutyful (which I'm assuming is just a different spelling of "beautiful") My Universe And, well, the name "Colors of the World" has "color" in it so maybe you accidentally predicted Coloratura 😂 Reminds me of the time I jokingly predicted that AHFOD would have a song called Birds because of how often Chris writes lyrics about birds and flying

  28. I think it won't matter on macro scale at all. It is getting hyped in a circle of hardcore fans. Full leak doesn't change much, because it still will not be easily accessible. Most of the people these days would prefer a comfortable listen, not searching for music on suspicions websites. So I don't see Coldplay and their record label letting this situation blackmail them to change the release schedule.

  29. I don't think Life Is Beautiful will appear on the album. At least not in the way we know it - the song might just share a similar melody. It wouldn't be the first time either (e.g. Wedding Bells -> Christmas Lights) LIB is a newer version of Spanish Rain, and it seemed like they only play it live for the fans in South America. I don't see them chanting "ole ole ole" in a major album track lmao

  30. I can definitely see them putting out EPs instead of albums after a certain point, as I've just said, there's too much at stake when it comes to LPs, they're major releases. EPs would just allow them to put out music quicker and there wouldn't be pressure for them to be commercially successful or anything. Closing down their very massive album run in 2024 and releasing a boxset / greatest hits in 2025 to celebrate 25 years of mainstream career would be quite nice.

  31. I thought the same thing at first but now it appears we have 3 volumes containing at least 10 tracks each! I posted this on Twitter, but here is my theory: 2021 - Volume 1 2022 - Volume 2 2023 - Volume 3 2024 - FFTF (Coldplay's final album / possibly a collection of unreleased material) Chris mentioned recently that they knew how many more albums they wanted to do. This would give them 10 LP's, a nice even number. Then from there they could just tour and release singles whenever they wanted.

  32. 2021 - vol. 1 2022 - vol. 2 2023 - vol. 3 2024 - Finale For The Fans I hope that's not their plan.

  34. Full album announcement with a full track list. Album cover that's the same as the teaser in the Everyday Life booklet. Wow. The "vol.i" bit in the announcement definitely has me thinking. Why mention that if there's no "vol.ii" on the way in the next couple of years? And "vol.iii" to fit with the "melodic orbit in three parts" thing? Could those be further studio albums in the coming years, which would basically make MOTS the biggest project they've ever done? I was under the impression that the album would just be divided into three distinct parts, maybe four songs each. But now that do

  35. Mosts live performances of Up&Up amounted to 8-9 minutes, so a 10 minute prog track doesn't feel so far off. 😉 Also, could People of the Pride be POTP off Everyday Life?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  36. Maybe that's the trick, they will put the 3 Higher Power alternative versions/remixes one after another 🤡

  37. Anyone else thought that on Friday we are getting 10 minutes and 18 seconds of new music... That's almost like 3 Higher Powers in length. 🤔

  38. Interesting just found this on a different website selling the Vinyl "Launched alongside the album announcement is Overtura (Music Of The Spheres Album Trailer) a spectacular audio-visual journey through the album’s planetary artwork with short clips of the album’s twelve tracks. This is followed on Friday 23 July, by the release of the album closer Coloratura – not a “single”, but an epic, 10-minute+ piano-led anthem!"

  39. It would be odd to release a single that has silence and/or a hidden track on it, unless it was getting a separate single version. With the album up, you get the impression the full song will play there. Seems to imply the song itself is that long.

  40. After years asking for it, Coldplay delivering The Race as a hidden track in Coloratura would be so funny 😄

  41. So according to the letter there will be more than one release? 😱 They will release Coloratura on Friday and then My Universe in September? This era is gonna be amazing!!!

  42. So, Music Of The Spheres (vol 1) coming out on October. Does that mean we should expect vol 2 next year?
