Everything Coldplay does is massive, epic — that’s been a key characteristic of Chris Martin and the guys since bursting onto the scene with 2000’s Parachutes. And on Oct. 15, they’ll add to their robust catalog of music with Music of the Spheres, a new record and their eighth studio album to date.

The album was first previewed with the jubilant standalone single “Higher Power” in recent weeks, before being officially detailed on July 20 (the same day Amazon founder/billionaire Jeff Bezos went on his mission to the edge of space, it must be noted). The concept behind Music of the Spheres seems rooted skyward, from the song titles (some of which are emojis) and the music videos for “Higher Power” — as well as this latest new song, “Coloratura.”

Shared on Thursday by Coldplay, the sprawling song, which spans more than 10 minutes and closes the new record and references Galileo, Oumuamua and Betelgeuse, can be experienced below:

Here’s a teaser for the album, which was produced by Max Martin:

Since the premiere of “Higher Power,” the track has racked up more than 160 million streams, further establishing the group’s presence as an international musical force.

Its latest music video depicted Martin and several alien creatures doing some exhausting-looking dancing in space:

As for the album’s track list, here’s that — and notice that five of the tracks are represented by emojis:
