The Max Martin-produced LP will be released on October 21st, 2021.
British outfit Coldplay have announced their ninth studio album, Music of the Spheres, with a brand new song titled 'Coloratura' set for release this Friday.
The LP is due out October 15th via Atlantic, with the tracklist featuring multiple emojis as song titles.
In a handwritten note, the band wrote that the album is “(vol.i)” with a third single set to follow in September. “Everyone is an alien somewhere,” the band added. “Thank you for listening, or coming to shows, or any way we have met through music."
Coldplay shared the new album’s first single 'Higher Power' in May, subsequently performing the song for the 2021 BRIT Awards and on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Thomas Pesquet gave the new track its first play after midnight on board the International Space Station.
The band also played the song live in the grounds of Whitby Abbey in North Yorkshire – the monastic ruins which formed the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula – for Radio 1's Big Weekend 2021.
The London pop band's last album came in 2019’s Everyday Life.
