  1. Just a few things to add: That account was fake although they were probably the ones who leaked the race. The moon thingy has been there since AHFOD. It's probably just apart of their aesthetic at this point. It's never lead to anything important
  2. As always, rules apply. Please refrain from posting leaked snippets of the track
  3. Yes, it was just before EL was announced
  4. @NajJanetto on Twitter stated that tomorrow (July 4th) is a planet parade, a rare occurrence where all the planets in the solar system line up. This is the biggest since 1986 and won't happen again until 2161
  5. You can post them in the upload section and I will organise them properly so that they are available in the downloads tab at the top of the page. For it to qualify you have to know where it came from and what was done to the file, ie. if it was compressed.
  6. Thank you, that means a lot ♥️
  7. This has been annoying me for a while too. It has been fixed!
  8. DISCUSS STORY Chris Martin is collaborating with various artists to cover Foo Fighters iconic track "Times Like These" for BBC's Stay at Home Live Lounge! The Stay Home Live Lounge will be released at midday on Thursday 23 April and will see some of the music industry’s biggest stars collaborate on a cover of Foo Fighters’ Times Like These to raise money for charities, with the accompanying video to receive its world exclusive premiere during BBC One’s The Big Night In. The artists taking part are (in alphabetical order): 5 Seconds of Summer AJ Tracey Anne-Marie Bastille Biffy Clyro Celeste Chris Martin of Coldplay Dermot Kennedy Dua Lipa Ellie Goulding Grace Carter Hailee Steinfeld Jess Glynne Mabel Paloma Faith Rag’n’Bone Man Rita Ora Royal Blood Sam Fender Sean Paul Sigrid YUNGBLUD Zara Larsson The Stay Home Live Lounge will be recorded and filmed by artists from their own homes, and produced by Grammy and Ivor Novello award-winning producer Fraser T. Smith. Smith is renowned for his work with Stormzy, Adele, Dave and many more, and counts seven UK number one singles and 18 number one albums among his achievements. The Stay Home Live Lounge will be broadcast for the first time across Radio 1, Radio 2, 1Xtra, 6Music and Asian Network from midday on Thursday 23 April as well as on demand on BBC Sounds. The accompanying video will be broadcast during The Big Night In on BBC One that evening and will be available to watch later on Radio 1’s iPlayer and YouTube channels. The BBC will also release the song as a single, with UK net profits to be combined with any funds raised by The Big Night In. These funds will be split equally between BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to vulnerable people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK who will be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. International net profits will go towards the WHO’s COVID-19-Solidarity Response Fund. Fraser T Smith says: “It’s humbling to have been asked to produce this amazing single, taking the Foo Fighters’ classic, Times Like These, with the Radio 1 Live Lounge team and the incredible collective of artists who have come together to record whilst in isolation. Our vision was to create a stay at home version using phones, pots, pans and acoustic guitars that would honour the brilliance and honesty of the artists and song, rather than the trickery of an expensive recording studio. We tried to make this single in a totally different way artistically, relevant to today. The lyrics particularly resonate with us all at this challenging time, and I sincerely hope that money raised can help the plight of the unified battle against COVID-19 around the world.” All net profits from sales or downloads of the single within the UK will be donated to two charities. 50% of donations will be paid to Comic Relief which is the trading name of Charity Projects (registered charity in England and Wales, charity number 326568 and in Scotland, charity number SC039730) and 50% of donations will be paid to BBC Children in Need (registered charity in England and Wales, charity number 802052 and in Scotland, charity number SC039557). The Big Night In Appeal is a joint initiative between Comic Relief and BBC Children in Need.
  9. Hold your horses I was busy! It has been changed to unlimited.
  10. Great to see you back here! I can't even remember when I joined Coldplaying (my join date gets reset often due to all the database work I do) but I think I just passed 5 years! I may be a bit biased but I think it's a lovely place for all of us to come together and discuss nothing but Coldplay 😛 it has felt extra special lately with everything going on. Don't worry, Coldplaying will be here until the day I physically can no longer run it! Thank you for coming on here and contributing 🙂
  11. Search has been indexed and is faster than ever. There is many CPU Cores and RAM dedicated to just search alone!
  12. Fixed! Just took a while to upload them all after the server switch
  13. Coldplaying analyses the impact of Alan McGee's famous 'bedwetters' comment printed in 'The Guardian' in 2000 It's no secret that Coldplay, one of the biggest bands in the world, has a lot of haters. However, in July of 2000, the band just released their debut album 'Parachutes' and had nowhere near the amount of fans they had today. In fact, Coldplaying.com was not launched until December of that year and even then, it only had a handful of members. Parachutes received high praise from major critics and universal love from the press. In a contemporary review of the album, Michael Hubbard of musicOMH called it "an album of remarkable depth, especially when one considers the youthful ages of the band members." Coldplay had just begun a tour to accompany the album and would go on to perform in the United States, Japan, Australia and more. Self-esteem was high and it seemed nothing could bring down the spirit of the band. That was of course until Alan McGee came along! Who is Alan McGee? I asked myself the exact same question! Alan McGee was the former head of Creation Records, home of Oasis and many "uber-cool 90's bands". He also wrote the infamous "bedwetters" article during his time as a music blogger for The Guardian. McGee begins with his frustration towards the current state of the music scene and goes on to express his love and hate towards certain artists. Within the first paragraph, McGee tears into Coldplay with a mere two sentences. Coldplay could have easily passed off this comment as a cynical bid for attention, but considering McGee was a man so highly regarded in the indie world, this hit them hard. As a band who had just released their debut album and were no doubt paying a lot of attention to the press to receive feedback, this was tough. The comment was not even about the music, it was about who they were as people and it questions their “authenticity” – which, in the indie world, was the absolute measurement of worth. The iconic set got people talking about Coldplay once again and defined the release of their second album 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' which received even better reviews than that of Parachutes. Coldplay went on to tour the world to accompany the chart-topping album and released their Live DVD in 2003 to conclude the era of A Rush of Blood to the Head. While Coldplay continued to shock the world with their ever-changing music style, Alan McGee remains particularly venomous towards the band. In 2010, McGee called for the Brit Awards to be abolished – and branded the year’s nominees “an embarrassment” to music-lovers. It was only in March 2020 that McGee backtracked on his infamous comment in an interview with the Sunday Express. It is also worth noting that Alan McGee insisted that rockers should retire at 40. Meanwhile, Chris Martin who turned 40 in 2017, announced the band's new endeavour 'Kaleidoscope EP' which has failed to disappoint fans and critics and arguably lives up to those aforementioned "standards of Parachutes". The band have gone on to release 'Everyday Life' which received 4-star ratings across the board! Take that Alan McGee!
