  1. According to the timings on the website it should run another 25mins
  2. Has anyone told lady gaga's fans yet that there's another artist using the space theme for their album?! πŸ˜„ Theoretically, they could perform together at the brit awards, who knows...
  3. It was a big statement from Chris. The way their marketing is going the next tour should be a big one. Maybe they'll do things like introduce more recycling or using more sustainable materials in their production - baby steps basically. And their ocean clean up partnership could be one of the ways in which they intend to offset the environmental impact of their shows. It's not perfect but more than most bands do. For us, it could mean a ticket price increase or limiting ticket sales to locals, who knows. Maybe they've come up with some great ideas whilst jetting around the world on their priva
  4. πŸ˜‚ I have to admit, I actually prefer the hat to his current hairstyle.
  5. Yeah, that's definitely a pattern, and it seems like a lot of long term fans prefer the more artsy albums. I wouldn't necessarily call it one for the label, one for the band. Everyday life got hardly any promo and still sold quite well. Plus i'm pretty sure the band wouldn't release an album they didn't fully believe in themselves. With them being one of the biggest acts around they hold the cards rather than the label, I'm pretty sure any other label would be quick to sign them even if they decided to abandon the mainstream stuff. So I assume the band actually enjoy being more mainstream now
  6. Do they usually release songs earlier for critics and radio stations, in preparation of the launch? If so, someone could've leaked the lyrics. On the German rollingstone website there's an article stating the record label suggested there'll be a tour in late 2021, around the same time when the album will be released, and another single inbetween higher power and the album.
  7. I think popularity alone doesn't make a song a masterpiece. Most songs that are very popular have catchy melodies, and usually they readily evoke emotions in many people. Other factors like branding and personality can help too. I don't even think that came about with social media, and it's happening in other arts too. Being artsy alone won't qualify a song as a masterpiece either. I think ultimately most people care more about how a song makes them feel than the actual composition. A true masterpiece like bohemian rhapsody will have that emotional impact and be easily palatable, and additiona
  8. Or maybe that lady whose song they promoted on socials the other day.
  9. I nominate those symbols as internet rabbit hole of the week. Someone suggested that each song on the new album may have one symbol assigned to it. The music of the spheres theory explains how the same geometrical concepts apply to both musical and cosmic harmony. Based on that, geometry could indeed be used to express or represent music. On social media there are five symbols that have been featured more prominently than the others been so far: The 3 stars, spiral, infinity, triangle and the orbit symbol. I focused on those 5 symbols for now. What I’ve found is that while they
  10. Re the album title, maybe it'll be a double album like EL was with sunrise and sunset.
  11. Could kaotonic be a song title? Maybe there's a new station on the alienradio page? I assume the songs will be dropped there one after the other over the next few days?
  12. Depends on what they're planning to do, a single/album launch could happen online (YouTube).
  13. If it's a tour that could work. They could announce it next month and it could happen over the summer :)
  14. Do you mean on here or in general? Have they gotten many views/comments on YouTube? I haven't watched any of them to be honest, I don't usually watch music videos in general. I'm a bad fan I guess :P
  15. It could be the title of a greatest hits tour, with spheres referring to their past albums.
  16. The London show that they're mentioning seems to be a tribute band.
  17. I see what you mean about them not being as mainstream with this album and therefore not reaching as many people. Personally, I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything because of it, it doesn't change the way I think about their music. And whether or not other people enjoy it is up to them (I don't enjoy everything that's mainstream currently either). I also think that change in mainstream music doesn't necessarily have to come from within it, or that it would happen suddenly. What I'm trying to say is it's hard to judge what impact this album might really have in the end. Someone me
  18. What makes a band relevant? They just had a no.1 album despite skipping most of the usual promo involved in releases. They also got nominated for the Brit awards. It's not too bad i think.
  19. Found the video on YouTube. That is quite something,hearing him describe the gig as "shitty"! :eek: it's how I felt after the London NHM ticket sales fiasco too.
  20. Musically, I think this might be their strongest album since Viva la Vida. There aren't many artists who can pull off this kind of variety in musical styles the way that Coldplay do. I was very surprised about some of the songs, for example I really wasn't expecting a gospel song. It's something I wouldn't normally listen to but I actually really like that about this album. I also like the topics that they've covered and the messages in the songs. Overall, it's refreshing and inspiring, and it really shows off how talented they are. My personal favourites are Champion of the wo
  21. I haven't watched the French interview yet but if there are two meanings then one of the themes in the picture could be space and the other sustainability. The way I see it the main features of the picture are the billboard, the car and the license plate, and both space and sustainability could be represented in each of the three. In terms of the space theme, if the car is an old range rover then the 2nd part of the name as well as the "2024" from the license plate could be referring to the next NASA Apollo moon mission. In the billboard the space theme is picked up by the solar system m
  22. It's interesting to read about the different theories! :) This was what I posted before in the LP9 thread:
  23. I've always been a bit of an environmentalist and I love how the band are one of the first to really acknowledge and raise awareness of the impact their industry and specifically touring has on the environment. I hope this will inspire change both on the business side and also in fans' personal lives. Having said that, making touring sustainable is a huge task and if they don't want to lose their credibility they'll now have to follow through and maybe reconsider how many flights they take etc. in their off time too as otherwise it'll look like they're following the trend and doing this fo
  24. Staying with the space theme, "2024" could be a reference to NASA's 2024 Apollo Moon Mission, Back to the moon. And maybe the car is an old rover (-> lunar rover)? There's also a theme of bringing old and new together in the picture generally as with regards to Music of the Spheres, I learned that this seems to relate back to old theories by scientists Pythagoras and Kepler and their work on the relationship between music, harmonics and geometry, as well as the universe. In that album booklet picture that could be represented by the celestial symbols and geometrical shapes. NASA also seem t
