AceShowbiz - Coldplay has finally dropped their "Music of the Spheres" album. Along with its arrival on Friday, October 15, the British rock band unleashed a lyric video for "Let Somebody Go" featuring Selena Gomez.
In the breakup ballad, vocalist Chris Martin and the "Only Murders in the Building" actress lament the pain of bidding farewell to those they love. "All the storms we weathered/ Everything that we went through/ Now without you, what on earth am I to do?" she first sings in her verse.
"When I called the mathematicians and I asked them to explain/ They said love is only equal to the pain," the ex-boyfriend of Justin Bieber continues, before Chris harmonizes, "And when everything was going wrong/ You could turn my sorrow into song."
"Let Somebody Go" is co-written by Chris and Gwyneth Paltrow's 17-year-old daughter, Apple. The exes' son Moses, meanwhile, is featured on the chorus of "Humankind". The 15-year-old boy sings along with his dad, "I say I know I know I know We're only human/ I know I know I know/ How we're designed, yeah/ I know I know I know/ We're only human/ But from another planet/ Still they call us Humankind."
"Music of the Spheres" is Coldplay's ninth album. Aside from the two tracks, it consists of "People of the Pride," "Human Heart," "Infinity Sign" and "My Universe" featuring BTS (Bangtan Boys).
One day prior to the album release, Coldplay announced that the band will be going on an environmentally sustainable world tour next year. They plan to cut emissions by 50 percent compared to their previous live shows.
"We're very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis. So we've spent the last two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible, and, just as importantly, to harness the tour's potential to push things forward," band members said in a statement.
"We won't get everything right, but we're committed to doing everything we can and sharing what we learn. It's a work in progress and we're really grateful for the help we've had so far," they added. "If you'd like to come to a show and sing with us, we're so excited to see you."
