Coldplay Stirs the Emotions on ‘FeelsLikeImFallingInLove’: Stream It Now’

By Michael Jun 21, 2024

Coldplay embarks on the next phase of their intergalactic journey with “FeelsLikeImFallingInLove.”

Produced by Swedish master Max Martin, the new cut dropped at the stroke of midnight and is the first lifted from the British band’s forthcoming tenth studio album, Moon Music.

The Swede creates a crystal-clear production, over which the Englishman Martin professes his charge of heart. There’s no doubt about it, he’s all loved-up.

On it, he sings, “Oh, it feels like I’m fallin’ in love/ Maybe for the first time Baby, it’s my mind you blow/ It feels like I’m fallin’ in love/ You’re throwin’ me a lifeline/ This is for a lifetime, I know.”

Coldplay premiered the song live this week at Budapest’s Puskás Aréna, and will get the chance to perform it for a sea of music fans (and millions more watching on their screens) when they headline Glastonbury Festival for a record fifth time.

Moon Music is due out Oct. 4, 2024. It’s a continuation to Coldplay’s most recent release, the Max Martin-produced 2021 effort Music Of The Spheres, which opened at No. 1 in the U.K. and Australia, and No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The single “My Universe” with BTS hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, one of their two leaders (“Viva La Vida” logged one week at the summit in 2008). Four of their albums have led the Billboard 200 chart.

In the U.K., Coldplay’s chart story is nothing short of perfection: each of their nine albums have gone to No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart, dating back to 2000 debut Parachutes.

Coldplay is currently on the road in support of Spheres. The years-long tour is currently slated to wrap up with the second of two shows in Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand on Nov. 16.

Martin has been teasing the new record for 18 months, at least. Back in January of 2023, he told the Toronto City News that the band was nearing completion of what he then promised was the second LP in the Music of the Spheres series. He remarked “that won’t come out for a bit,” though he teased that the band “might” start rolling out some of the new songs live that year.

The foursome will ram-home their eco-ethics on Moon Music, for which Coldplay has “gone to great lengths” to make the physical release “as sustainable as possible,” according to a previously-released statement.
