    The REAL reason why there are no leaks yet

    well bad timing. the album just leaked. albeit, they want you to pay for it but the snippets in the video are real and we haven't heard them before. I expect someone on the internet to pay for it, and release it to everyone. Give it a couple of hours lmao. Here comes Phil Harvey and his band of Warner Music lawyers.

    anyone here who got a shipping confirmation for the pre-orderd my universe single? only the epiphane edition was shipped on 30. Sept. 

    I ordered the original single on the first day and got a confirmation email on 15 Sept. My order still hasn't been shipped. Same with another person from my region via the Discord server.

    Quick question: am I wrong to assume that - given the fact that My Universe has not even passed the 50M streams on Spotify - this song is, just like Higher Power, not really well received by mainstream audiences, given the number of monthly listeners that Coldplay typically have on for example Spotify? 

    Good point. Also Spotify had just never updated their spotify numbers until right now. They jumped from 35 mil to 56 mil streams after I think 3 days.

    It's a screengrab from the website usstore.coldplay.com/collections/music-of-the-spheres/products/music-of-the-spheres-box-set. One of the features from the Box Set is "A unique, one-of-a-kind Polaroid of Coldplay performing in LA in September 2021" Where was this concert? 

    The Polaroids are taken at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank, California. The show will be broadcast in October on radio and on TV. Setlist here: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/coldplay/2021/honda-stage-at-the-iheartradio-theater-burbank-ca-638c72eb.html

    This feels a little weird, but this is the biggest most active forum and it's related (tangentially) to LP9 & Higher Power so it's worth a shot: 

    Hi everyone! My name is Brandon. I work for a summer camp in the United States and this week my group of elementary school kids is doing a lip sync battle. We picked Higher Power as our song, and one of my kids even hand-wrote the Kaotican for the title. We're dressing up as aliens just like in the video, and we're even gonna be in a "band." It would mean a lot to me if I could surprise them with a special shoutout from the band could on Twitter, and the only way I really know how to get the attention is to go begging for it on all the socials I could find. Attached is a link to my tweet, some big fan accounts like ColdplayXtra and Coldplaying have liked it, so it would mean a lot if you've got a Twitter to just give it a like or a retweet. It's a bit of a far-fetched idea, but surprising them would mean a lot to all of us. Attached is a picture of the artwork and a link to the tweet. Thank you so much!

    If you want to get some promotion on a bigger forum, you can try the Coldplay Discord Server. There are more people over there and it's more active as it's more of a place to text about Coldplay instead of a forum board.

  6. more news! the shotlist from the barcelona shoot has been found on the floor of the filming location. zooming in, we can make out that Epiphane will be involved and that a new language will probs be introduced. also a shotlist with markers for a lot of the shot and a possible mention of BTS has been found. (we cant say if it really is bts because its blurry but its very likely.)

    I know the one performance you mean - I always assumed this was because in the VLV era, Will would always sing the choruses in unison with Chris. Watch the video footage of this, and any other 2008-2009 performance and you'll see Will singing in the choruses. At the final chorus I think I only hear the vocal doubling at the end after the "oh's" finish, but hard to tell if it's Will's voice or Chris's. There's a separate question of is Will lip syncing, and the answer is maybe - supposedly he mentions he does in that master class he taught, though there are plenty instances of performances where you can hear Will make mistakes and stuff, which makes it seem like he doesn't lip sync 100% of the time either.

    Also I'm fairly certain Today Show's vocal track is not the same as American Idol/BRIT Awards. Chris sings certain things fairly differently the whole time and I'm not convinced any of it is playback.

    But I guess the bigger topic of is there lip syncing, obviously the answer is YES, and we just have to grapple with that as fans, recognising that many major artists do it and a few don't. But it's really hard to get away from the use of any backing tracks at all. Red Hot Chili Peppers reportedly did 100% playback (instruments and vocals) during their Super Bowl performance, though the playback is to a live pre-recorded track rather than a studio version. If that tells you anything about who does or doesn't do playback/lip-syncing. 




    About the Superbowl, Will revealed during a masterclass about their concerts that Coldplay's set was also all pre-recorded besides the vocals. Apparently the NFL just makes all the artists use pre-recorded stuff so they don't mess anything up during the peformance.

    There was four singer, for me it was played live. Backing track vocal are used since 2005, even guitar backing track (Square one, yellow, 42 in 2008,...). The most important problem for me is when chris totally lipsync on songs. 

    Now as Chris use live playback vocal it's hard to know if he sang live or not. We don't know if ASFOS at NY yesterday was really sang live.

    true. we would need a higher quality recording then an audience recording to tell if it's a pre-recorded vocal track.
