Coldplay announces new album “Music of the Spheres”
Chris Martin and Co. shared the news via a handwritten note on their Twitter account, along with a cosmic album visual, Opening, on Youtube.
The next LP will feature a dozen tracks, five of which were teased today with emojis. The first release of it was “Higher Power”, which burst into the UK Top 10 in May, and is accompanied by an official clip that sticks like glue to the intergalactic theme.
Then the aforementioned “Coloratura” arrives in a few days. Another new track will be available in September, according to the group’s Instagram post.
“Thanks for listening, or coming to shows, or anyway we’ve come across through music,” reads the note signed by Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.
Music of the Spheres is Coldplay’s ninth studio album and the sequel to 2019’s double album Daily life, which topped the UK official albums chart and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200.
Coldplay is one of the biggest groups to have seen the light of day since the turn of the century. They’re on a roll in their homeland, where each of their eight studio albums went to No.1 and two singles topped the national charts. In the United States, Coldplay has four No.1 albums and a No.1 single with “Viva la Vida” in 2008. The group’s trophy room includes seven Grammys, nine Brit Awards and nine Billboard Music Awards.
