On Oct. 15, Chris Martin and Coldplay will add to their catalog with Music of the Spheres, a new album officially detailed on Tuesday.

Produced by renowned pop producer Max Martin, the news came with an album teaser from the long-running English pop/rock band:

Recent weeks saw Coldplay unleash “Higher Power,” a jubilant, soaring (and relentlessly upbeat) anthem produced by Martin. To date, 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:

The animated video was the product of noted music video director Chris Meyers (Taylor Swift, Travis Scott and Billie Eilish), again features Martin and aliens dancing together in bliss, this time in (per a news release) a colorful trash planet named Kaotica, whose alien language (Kaotican) features in the video and across the “Higher Power” artwork.

Those dancing aliens are actually Seoul’s Ambiguous Dance Company.

Said Meyers of the concept behind the clip: “The video is a metaphor for how, right now, we all feel alienated, far removed from our world, almost like we’re on an alien planet. And ultimately we find love in the streets and that euphoria shoots us off into the stratosphere of our own energy and higher power.”

In addition to this album news, Coldplay will also debut an album track titled “Coloratura” this Friday, with another single from the record coming in September. As for the album’s track list, here’s that — and notice that five of the tracks are represented by emojis:


Higher Power


Let Somebody Go


People Of The Pride



My Universe
