And the Next Max Martin-produced Album...: Music of the Spheres by Coldplay


Recommended Posts

Coldplay just announced that their ninth studio album, Music of the Spheres, will drop October 15 and is executive produced by pop legend Max Martin, whom the band called "a true wonder of the universe". The artwork and imagery of this era is VERY Chromatica to me :gagasmile_smirk_lady_pink: so maybe Maxy never left that universe... Thoughts?

I really haven't listened to Coldplay after high school (during the Mylo Xyloto era with the Rihanna bop), but I've always appreciated their message and live performances. The first single, "Higher Power", is all right. But it leaves me feeling a little underwhelmed like Lorde's "Solar Power". Maybe record labels are struggling to find lead singles that will connect with everyone. Oftentimes, I feel as though they end up connecting with no one except the die-hards. This is why deep cuts are usually/always my favorite on a big pop album like this. 

At the end of the day, alternative songs with deeper meanings just cannot compete with s**, wap, and *** on the radio. But I'm excited for new Max Martin music in 2021.

Yeah. Max Martin is good for a one straight pop hit on the album, but the whole album? Jesus.

Ariana's last 3 albums are living proof of that :fruit_fall_trip_ouch_dead:
