Out Now: Coldplay Reaches Even Higher with Sprawling, Epic New Album ‘Music of the Spheres’

When it comes to Coldplay, at this point in the group’s career you can expect some of the biggest, most sweeping musical compositions of the pop/rock realm — and Chris Martin and his colleagues definitely followed that same plan with Music of the Spheres, a new album that was released on Friday.

It hardly comes as a surprise to hear the band reach for the stars, as pre-release singles “Higher Power” and “My Universe” made their ambitions loud and clear. “My Universe,” a collaboration with Korean boy band BTS, was precisely as huge as you’d expect, given the stature of both musical entities:

This is not the band that broke out with 2000’s Parachutes. This is Coldplay, established stadium headliner reaching high with lofty ambitions and some of the most pristine production of its career, courtesy of pop mastermind Max Martin. Selena Gomez also shows up on a song (“Let Somebody Go”), there’s a Muse-inspired “rocker” in which Martin curses (“People of the Pride”), and the whole thing just has an air of anthemic excess — by design, of course.

To further emphasize the galactic pursuits of this new album, here’s the Music of the Spheres track listing, which includes emojis as titles:


Higher Power
Let Somebody Go
People Of The Pride
My Universe

Prior to the album release, Coldplay also announced huge 2022 tour plans, which the band promises will be “as sustainable and low-carbon as possible,” visiting major cities around the world.
