Coldplay PREMIERE 'HIGHER POWER' IN SPACE

 

BAND LINK-UP WITH ASTRONAUT THOMAS PESQUET ON BOARD THE ISS FOR LAUNCH OF NEW SINGLE


Coldplay’s new single, “Higher Power”, is out today (Friday, 7 May) via Parlophone / Atlantic. The Max Martin-produced song is available to stream / download everywhere here.

To celebrate “Higher Power”’s release, the band linked up for an extraterrestrial video chat with French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who is currently on board the International Space Station.

A specially-recorded performance of “Higher Power” – featuring dancing alien holograms – was beamed up to Pesquet, who gave the track its very first play on board the ISS.

The song’s premiere followed a conversation which took in similarities between life on tour and life on the ISS; the fragility of planet earth; and whether Pesquet has spotted any aliens.
