Even by Coldplay standards, the new album, Music of the Spheres, sounds like it’s going to be unusually trippy. First came the story that five of the song titles will be represented by emojis. Now comes a second single–not an official one, but that’s how people will look at it–that runs a little more than ten minutes.
“Coloratura” will be the 12th and final song on the album that’s due October 15. And that’s not a made-up word, either. “Coloratura” is defined as “an elaborate embellishment in vocal music.”
