    Speculation Before Release



    Last night, Coldplay's record label tweeted a photo of four shadowy figures with caption "Parlophone Records are delighted to present new signing #LosUnidades". It wasn't until this morning when ColdplayXtra speculated that the four figures resembled a press photo of Coldplay from 2014 and the code in the bottom right of the photo was an anagram for 'COLDPLAY2018'.







    The Coldplay community put on their detective hats and found a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter page under @LosUnidades, all created this month. Losunidades.com was also found with the same name servers as the ones used on Coldplay.com. Finally, ColdplayXtra found a trademark agreement for 'Los Unidades' registered back in November 2017 with the four band members listed as owners.




    Speculation continued and a trademark for 'Car Kids', a discarded track from the Mylo Xyloto era, was found, also registered in November of last year. Users on the r/coldplay subreddit speculated that 'Los Unidades' is an anagram for 'Unsold Ideas', leading to the idea that this could be an album of previously unreleased tracks. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
