On Friday, British band Coldplay dropped its ninth album Music of the Spheres to mixed reception. The album not only features lead singer Chris Martin and his band but also has songs with Selena Gomez and BTS. Earlier, Chris Martin told NME that the band will stop dropping albums after they complete their twelfth one.

He described the album as a bit of “sci-fi” and “everything” though it really was a “bunch of love songs.” He also said that it was not even set in space though the theme was galactic.
When he appeared on The Zach Sang Show, the lead singer of Coldplay had said that he had wondered what musicians were like across the Universe, when he was watching a scene in Star Wars that depicted the Cantina band. This was what lead to the concept of their latest album. Martin said that the track Higher Power was set in the fictional planet of Kaotica and so were the rest of the tracks in the album.
