  1. Oh wow. Chris played a snippet of a new song during a conference thing on Clubhouse. In the full interview, he asks for it to not be recorded and that it will be out sometime potentially. We should all just disregard the first part... LYRICS: "We had a kind of love- I thought would never end Oh my lover, oh my lover, oh my friend Talked around in circles and talked around again I loved you to the moon and back again" (lyrics from cp discord server) ChrisMartin_New_Track_CH.mp3

  2. Am I alone in thinking that this is one of Chris' best lyrics of all time? I think it's a cracking line!

  3. At this point I'm very jealous of Taylor Swift fans who have had two new albums come out during lockdown along with a reworked album being released next month... so far we've had Flags to keep us going😢

  4. I want Jon Hopkins to contribute again. Midnight and The Escapist are amazing, as are the ambient remixes of MX songs that he contributed to Live 2012. Except this time, I want his contributions to be completely new. The Escapist and Midnight came from snippets of old Jon Hopkins compositions and the band just added to them.

  5. Oh please no Dua Lipa on a Coldplay album. One of the most talentless and shallow pop sensations to emerge in my humble opinion (next to Ariana Grande). II'm not too keen about collabs in general, but Rihanna and Beyoncé were in a different league. I wouldn't mind someone like Brittany Howard either. I agree with what was said above about the collabs on EL being collabs done just right. If they have to do collabs, more of that type please and less of the ones with a current pop hype. (also sorry to all Dua fans, it's great that you see something in her and love her but I simply don't and

  6. Don't trust genius. Anyone can edit it. I don't think it will be released in September if they release a single in May. They mostly release their albums about 2 months after first single release

  7. just my opinion but I don't think Dua Lipa or any other big collaborators will join them for MOTS - and I think it's for the better. Sometimes the collaborators can hinder a song's greatness or change the song entirely. What I'd love though is the type of collaborations on Viva or Everyday Life, where an expert in the field or a much less famous person contributes something meaningful to the band. Everyday Life had Jacob Collier contributing his signature layered vocals and production on Church, Cry Cry Cry, and Everyday Life, Norah Shaqur's beautiful and haunting voice on Church and Bani Adam

  8. So I have a theory. Coldplay’s trademark for “MOTS” is in the “Application Published” phase and has been since February 4th , 2021. It normally takes 2 months for it to be registered. If so that would happen April 4th , 2021. After that it takes 2 more weeks for it to be certified. If everything goes smoothly then they should own “MOTS” by April 19th! Which would be perfect timing because of their planned upcoming livestream concert on May 22nd. Maybe just maybe they might reveal something about LP9...

  9. For sure they sound bland and dull for now but it's only one small portion of the song. I totally share your concern as lyrics can really bring down Coldplay songs sometimes. My only defense is that Will's door has allowed lyrics in the past decade like: "spiderman's control, and batman with his fists" and "how come cars don't slow" and "all i know, is that i love you so, so much that it hurts" and "could have been a princess, you'd be a king, could have had a castle, worn a ring but NOO Oo O O O oo "

  10. And for the colabs discussion. I think that no matters who’s gonna be collaborating or not as long as the music is good.

  11. I've seen this Dua Lipa debate heat up and I wanted to put in my 'two cents'. Look at this photo. It's a design concept ordered by FirstGroup for the Great Western franchise. The photo is of the prototype Standard class seat design. It's a combination of blue, violet, teal and brown of all colours. Thank god First Great Western never used it... This image perfectly sums up collaborations in music. Multiple distinct styles (or colours in this anecdote) come together to make something awful. Very few collaborations actually work, like Under Pressure, as most end up being the 'bar

  12. A collaboration I would love though is Brian Eno. Literally brought out the best in them during Viva and (somewhat) during MX and his fingerprints are all over some of their best songs outside the era (White Shadows, Aliens, Arabesque). Given his experience with ambience especially with works like An Ending (Ascent) I think he'd do wonders with MOTS. It's also worth noting that many of the clues and little snippets revolving around space and even the phrase "Music of the Spheres" from Matt McGinn's book point to an era sometime around 2009-2011, where they scrapped many album ideas and e

  13. God it sounds so haunting... I'd love a song starting like that, imagine listening to that intro and then the song kicks int, talking about an astronaut lost in space. :P

  14. doesn't matter if I'm new to this site because I've been a Coldplay fan since 2009. You're right, we'll just wait and see what happens, but to say he WILL return and that they ARE collaborating is nothing short of fantasy until we get substantial evidence.

  16. I think Dua Lipa is god awful, along with almost all of today’s top 40 acts. I sincerely hope she will be nowhere near a Coldplay record. It was bad enough Rihanna was involved in POC and the Chainsmokers collaboration 🤮

  19. I suppose it could be an instance like the last 20 seconds of this December 2010 recording when Chris plays a little bit of the Bani Adam intro as a little interlude after Trouble. Or, he could have been improvising. Or, there's the off chance that he went back to that Trouble In Town performance and thought to himself "I really like that random bit of piano, I should record it so we can use it on the album."

  20. It's likely just something they came up with quite quickly. As others have said, he could even be improvising. That said, it is very nice and I could easily see it as an intro to a song, an interlude track, or even an Escapist-esque hidden track.

  21. Anybody know the song being played at the very beginning of the clip? Sounds kind of like a bit of Poppyfields but as far as I know it sounds different from anything they've ever made. I think it sounds pretty nice!

  22. Amen to that. With all the talk of Coldplay and colabs my mind rushed to this song. Dunno how many of you know it but I thought I'd share it just in case. I interpret it as a non-Pop song however that's just me. One of my favorite colab with Chris. "Gold in them Hills" https://youtu.be/85Kf9-hJ3yg

  23. If I may try to break through the tension here -- I'd like both of those things 🙂 I love Dua Lipa and think she's a real star. Future Nostalgia was a terrific album that bleneded modern pop sounds, perfect pop hooks/singalong choruses, and fun throwback intsrumentation. I also think the albums Ken Nelson worked on had THE BEST sounding recordings in Coldplay's entire career. The instrumentation feels like it's right in your face, the guitars are punchy, and the atmosphere feels alive. Ken Nelson probably is not coming back but a Dua collab is possible. They did tour together way bac

  24. look just cause it's your opinion doesn't mean it should and will happen, okay? Tons of fans want Coldplay to return to their roots, work with Ken Nelson, or bring back Brian Eno but that doesn't necessarily mean it WILL happen just because its our opinion that it will.

  25. I'm sorry but I just don't see it happening? Just because Future Nostalgia had a "space theme" and MOTS has a space "theme" doesn't mean that she's going to collaborate outright. If you ask me I'd put my money on the album having a Brian Eno influence based on all the evidence and clues I've seen.

  26. Knowing them, they are honestly probably relieved they don't have to fly everywhere and accompany Chris to every little appearance (not saying the Grammys are a little appearance, but rather talking about all these small solo performances Chris does here and there). They quite like being out of the public eye and having privacy and time for their families. I can assure you when Chris performs alone he has the full support and approval of the band, don't worry about it 🙂

  29. ^This. Taylor has been crushing it. I always liked her early albums and 1989 a lot but this past year she really became the most essential pop star. Both Folklore and Evermore are very, very good albums. Excited about the Jacob Collier news! It'd be cool if he featured... but I bet like with EL could be helping do mixing and production if the album is getting wrapped up. He also played the role of helping create "Angelina" from Cry Cry Cry, which Chris alluded to wanting to use again. I'm open to that... but also Cry Cry Cry is probably the first song I'd remove from EL since it tonally

  32. Man I forgot how intensely anti-mainstream pop this forum can be haha I'm an oldplayer and just wanna make it clear: I love Dua, Lil Nas X, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Beyonce, Rihanna, Ariana Grande. I think we're living in a moment where pop stars feel truly talented and interested in pushing bounderies again, and I listen to pop music quite regularly along with alternative music (metal, punk, hip-hop, indie). I say this not as a prescription for you all, but just as an unashamed proclamation that some folks can like Coldplay and other brands of music, and that's okay. But that said,

  33. Bruh just because it's your opinion doesn't mean that it's going to come true. Hence the word opinion. I don't get why you want me to stop because my opinion won't stop any collaborations. Obviously I'm not that powerful. Take note, you're also saying the word "will" - anything you say isn't certain to happen on the album, so it would be more helpful and less confusing to say "I think it will happen" not "will happen". Not trying to start an argument, just trying to prove my point.

  34. I’m thinking about 2 - 4 new songs if I’m completely honest, this is all sounding like pre-speculation of the 2011 gigs where we all wondered if new songs were going to be played and they played like 5 or 6 new ones 😂

  41. So hard to glean anything from this snippet, but agree that it has instant Mylo vibes. The melody feels pretty simple and lullabyish, but like it could be building to something more catchy and epic. Who knows if it's even a piano song! I'm sticking with my guess that they're returning to a pop alt-rock style similar to Mylo but this time instead of the Brian-eno xylobryte/ambient wall of sound, they'll do more new-wave style. New wave has made a huge comeback recently with Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, the Weeknd and now Justin Bieber to some extent. So I'm guessing there'll be some singles wit

  42. The lyrics read very “Music of the Spheres” to me... 🧐 They kind of remind me of Mylo Xyloto (as an album)... maybe it’s the sequel we never got! Let the theories begin! 😆

  43. I have no idea, it unfortunately happens sometimes to innocent posts like yours. These days we have a lot of spam thrown at us though - most of it you'll never see because the filter catches most of the spam posts and hides them until approval, but sometimes it seems to also catch the wrong posts. Anyway, I approved your post. About Will's backing vocals sounding the same - they are in all likelihood prerecorded. Doesn't mean Will can't sing, but in the masterclass he once gave he explained that as a drummer it sounds better if he pre-records because otherwise the loud drum sounds interfe

  44. I should probably mention Will since he’s the only member I haven’t talked about and recently Im starting to appreciate him more. He’s starting to grow on me and I’m starting to fall for him I think lol One of the things I like about him is how strong he is. I feel as if he went through a lot. I like how eloquent he is. He’s a good speaker. He seems very intelligent. He’s obviously very talented. Chris said he’s like the base of the statue of the band , and I can’t think of a better way to describe him and I love that quality about him(that I can’t quite put into words as well as Chri

I'm actually not new here, but this is my first post, so I guess it counts 😛 I remember downloading every single instrumental track from Coldplaying.com when I started this journey, so I have to thank everyone who helped with that: you're awesome! Here is a link to the Teaser Trailer: Here is a link to the Short Film: And I've attached some information below in a PDF if you're like to know more 🙂 Enjoy!!! 877415541_PEARL___MUTIARA_Short_Film_Electronic_Press_Kit.pdf
