So here is the situation: One of my favourite bands of all time, Coldplay, released a new album last year in november titled Everyday Life. I love this group, in fact my best ever gig was a Coldplay concert (live at Stockholm stadion in 2012, a gig i went to with my good friend Feliks Divelli. However… I STILL HAVEN’T LISTENED TO THEIR NEW ALBUM.
Excuse the all caps above, but this is really playing with my mind at the moment. It makes me question how much I actually like Coldplay, or how relevant the band is today.
I don’t think it is a matter of the band not being good anymore. They are good, in fact I would probably love to attend another one of their famous stadium gigs. Maybe it just is that I am perfectly happy leaning back and listening to their 99-05 catalogue of songs? Maybe I just don’t need Coldplay anymore like I used to.
Coldplay have not really done anything wrong as a band. They have played it very safe over the years and have a given place in popular music history. I just hope they keep going for long enough so that I can attend one of their gigs again.
And yes, I will listen to their album for sure. It just hit me like a ton of bricks how strange it is that I haven’t felt the need to do so yet!
