Coldplay are gearing up to launch their Moon Music era. On Thursday (June 13) the band announced that the first single from their upcoming follow-up to 2021’s Music of the Spheres, “feelslikeimfallinginlove,” will drop on June 21. The tease featured the song’s unwieldy title across the face of a waning planet with a colorful corona erupting from its surface.

The band gave the first taste of the anthemic song from their 10th studio album last week when they posted a 20-second TikTok of singer Chris Martin singing the chorus in front of a neon-lit ferris wheel, crooning, “It feels like I’m falling in love/ You’re throwing me a lifeline/ Oh, not for the first time/ I know I’m not alone.” The beginning of the roll-out of Coldplay’s next artistic phase continued during their stop at the Olympic Stadium in Rome last weekend, where they handed out lyric flyers for the new song.

They also performed the uplifting track at one of the shows, as evidenced by another TikTok in which their devoted fans sang along as if the tune was one of their beloved favorites, as well as another video from what appeared to be the video shoot for the track. “When you’ve finished your video shoot but the incredible crowd keeps singing your new song,” they captioned yet another TikTok in which the crowd is lit up with neon bracelets and the band appear to be covered in glowing lights during the shoot.

At press time Coldplay had not yet announced the details of the release date or track list for Moon Music, which singer Martin has been talking up for a year. 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. At the time he said, “but 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 never-ending Spheres global trek kicked off on March 18, 2022 in Costa Rica and is currently slated to wrap up with the second of two show in Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand on November 16.
