Coldplay have today confirmed the release of their much-anticipated new album, Music Of The Spheres. The band’s ninth LP will hit stores and streaming services on October 15th, 2021.
The band announced the Max Martin-produced album on Instagram via a handwritten note alongside an album trailer (available on YouTube at https://youtu.be/lQenG42hyE8) which combines an animated cosmic journey through the album’s planetary artwork with short clips of the album’s twelve tracks.
The band’s note also seemed to hint at further sci-fi themes with the phrase ‘Everyone is an alien somewhere’.
In May, the band released Higher Power – the first single from Music Of The Spheres – which has been streamed more than 160 million times. The band’s note also revealed the imminent release of an album track called Coloratura on Friday, to be followed by a new single in September.
The band have also revealed the full album tracklisting – with five of the twelve tracks represented by emojis.
