  1. Exactly, and about how love and faith help us get through any hardship and make life worthwhile.
  2. So I know Coloratura wasn't officially released as a single but since the reactions have been extremely positive and apart from radio it was just like any single release I'm a little surprised it didn't make the top 200 on spotify on its release day in the UK: https://spotifycharts.com/regional/gb/daily/latest Same for some of the other European countries I checked. In the US it ended up at 130 though!
  3. To be honest, I think it's too early to judge how well this collaboration with Max Martin worked out. Personally, I believe he's great at what he does, there's a reason for his immense success. That alone doesn't make him and Coldplay a dream team in my eyes though. On Coloratura it worked out very well, on HP less so (probably it's more his involvement as songwriter than producer that I'm not a fan of). I'd be surprised if they worked with Brian Eno again, or any of their other producers. If they want to keep evolving working with different people would make sense, in terms of their prod
  4. Yes! 😄 And I can't even tell you what exactly it is about that song, I just can't connect with it at all. It's not even about oldplay vs newplay for me, or indie vs pop. Cause I love songs like Trouble in Town or AOAL. And I love it when Coldplay experiment, BrokEn for example is another song that I love and that I find more uplifting than HP for some reason.
  5. Haha, yes, the ad distracted me from the solo a bit. I've installed an ad blocker now so it shouldn't bother me anymore! 🙂 Youtube must have placed the ad due to the length of the video, it could still be removed though. Anyway, I think the video is very beautiful otherwise. Someone else on here rated Coloratura 7/10, and I think that's fair. It's a massive step up from HP (2/10). 10/10 for me would be songs like Clocks or The Scientist.
  6. I really hope they'll remove the ad in the middle of the song on YouTube. The ones at the beginning and end should be enough. It was a weird interruption while listening. Honestly, I think that if they cut a song like this down to 3-4mins and released as a single that it would actually do better than HP. This style suits them as a band so much better in my opinion.
  7. Speaking of Coloratura, what are everyone's expectations for that song? I looked up the word and found out that Coloratura is a style of singing most commonly used in Operas. Based on what I've read I suppose in the trailer it's the snippet starting at 1:36. Since they describe it as a piano-led anthem, will it be instrumental only? Or maybe involve chorals? Chris as an opera singer is too much for my imagination. 🙂 Or maybe it's just a word that they liked the sound of and it'll mostly be a regular pop/rock song?
  8. It's true that these days most singers use technology like live pitch correction or autotune. Probably, if you want to be really sure it's live you have to watch much older performances, e.g. from Queen. More recently, I'd say Amy Winehouse is an example of someone who made very little use of this. I actually watched a video on this the other day to understand how technology can be used to enhance performances. I also read the comments and it was quite interesting to see how it was split pretty much 50-50, with half of those commenting saying they preferred the polished version and the o
  9. Another moment where I'd question if it was live is at around 2:25 when Chris made a mistake and you can hear how low the volume of his live vocals actually is.
  10. At around 1:50min into the HP performance there's a transition from playback to live vocals in my opinion. Chris suddenly sounds quite out of breath, which he doesn't sound like at all during the chorus itself despite his dancing. I think from 1:19-1:50 is playback and same for the other choruses.
  11. To me it sounds like Chris is lip synching the chorus during the Today Show performance of HP. And I also think Clocks was fully mimed.
  12. The acoustic version is refreshing, especially the live performance of it. Seeing the choir on stage with the band is lovely. That being said, it's not a game changer for me. Acoustic or not, the song's just a bit flat. I'm also still getting used to how playback is the new live. I really don't buy that the Today Show performance was live, even if they call it that. Their visuals are always very beautiful and finally seeing a real audience is super nice. With real live music it would be a thousand times better though.
  13. So it's been confirmed that HP is the soundtrack for the latest BMW commercial. I guess what Coldplay and BMW have in common is their goal to become more environmentally friendly. That, and how with their latest launches and their changes in style they've alienated large parts of their fan bases.
  14. Yes, or maybe something to do with climate change? Or something esports-related?
  15. If there are 12 planets then it could be a visual album, with them visiting each planet? that could be a way of introducing the different spheres to us and would allow for a more elaborate storyline to tie the different planets and songs together. And I agree, the video for the scientist is still my favourite one (admittedly I don't watch music videos very often), it was probably much lower budget but has a good storyline and it's just perfect!
