Coldplay will premiere their new track “Higher Power” with a very special link up to the International Space Station.
This track was first teased with a very special and cryptic “Alien Radio” website and video. More here.
A snippet of the song also appeared on Tik Tok for 24 hours earlier this week.
The track itself will be also released on May 7. The band took to social media to confirm this news.
They wrote, “Higher Power is a song that arrived on a little keyboard and a bathroom sink at the start of 2020. It was produced by Max Martin who is a true wonder of the universe. It’s out on Friday 7 May. Love c, g, w & j”. More on that report here too.
