The official announcement was made earlier in the day via the Twitter handles of both bands and the news has sent the fans into a frenzy. The song will be a part of Coldplay’s ninth studio album ‘Music of the Spheres’ which will be out on Friday, October 15.
All of Coldplay’s eight studio albums have managed to take the top spot on the official album charts. This collaboration seems to ensure that the latest one will follow the footsteps of the previous eight.
The track has been written by both the bands and features lyrics in English as well as Korean. A limited two-track CD single will be released which would include a copy of handwritten lyrics of the song. It will include the song ‘My Universe’ and an instrumental version of the same.
Here’s how twitter reacted to the news:
We get the first look at the album cover and CD artwork!
Every purchase will be contributing to a good cause.
The song has been labelled the collaboration of the century even before its release.
The fans are hoping that the single makes history for the bands.
