    Coldplay’s new single, Higher Power, is out now via Parlophone / Atlantic. The Max Martin-produced song is available to stream / download everywhere here.


    To celebrate Higher Power’s release, the band linked up for an extraterrestrial video chat with French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who is currently on board the International Space Station.


    A specially-recorded performance of Higher Power - featuring dancing alien holograms - was beamed up to Pesquet, who gave the track its very first play on board the ISS.


    The song’s premiere followed a conversation which took in similarities between life on tour and life on the ISS; the fragility of planet earth; and whether Pesquet has spotted any aliens.



    Coldplay will perform Higher Power on American Idol on Sunday (May 9) and at the BRIT Awards on Tuesday (May 11). The band will also perform a set for Glastonbury’s Live At Worthy Farm global livestream on May 22.

    • This was the version in the AHFOD documentary, and I believe it was the first one to be leaked. It's also my favourite.
    • new snippet for the lyrics video: https://www.instagram.com/p/CUGJz7VojcY/?utm_medium=copy_link the leaked version was not the final one😱 new version sounds much better  
    • I'm hyped for this. BTS are one of the most fun and charismatic pop outfits in the world, a perfect fit for the sounds Coldplay love to show on their more joyous chart-pop tracks. Chorus has hit written all over it, and that outro bops too. Production sounds rich and layered. It won't be one of the band's classics, of course, but it should be a fun pop tune.  We know two more art-y and emotional tracks will be on the album, and the trailer showed off some more abrasive sounds too. I, for one, am loving this post-AHFOD era of the band, pure eclecticism and freedom. I know their best albums are behind them, but that's the case for hundreds of artists who are still worth listening to. I'm grateful for all the masterpieces, and now I'm here for the era of just seeing where the inspiration takes them. This one sounds fun. 
    • Yes this is legit and it is an AHFOD. Actually all the leaked demos of The Race are from AHFOD era (I have my sources on this 👀) Further to this, The Race was going to be called Kaleidoscope during AHFOD but the guesthouse poem is what made the final cut and The Race version that we’ve heard in full was scrapped. No idea about the ‘Whatever it takes’ version tho. A fan also spoke to Phil Harvey today about any updates on The Race and he had nothing to share so I guess we’ll be waiting a little while yet for its release.
