Well ... we've all had some extra time on our hands ... bands and fans alike - and it seems like Coldplay decided to send fans some cryptic clues on new music - and Coldplay fans were up for solving the case ...
The case started on April 18, when a Twitter account for a website called Alien Radio FM shared its first post which simply read “Transmission incoming. Standby”
In the following days - it began posting images and videos captioned with coordinates from around the world, always linking to the alienradio.fm website.
Now here is where the Coldplay sleuths got their detective on - they noticed the account is listed as the band's account on their website after they had been retweeting posts.
Cryptic posters and billboards have popped up around the word - including on buildings in New York and at soccer games in South America.
While this seems like an elaborately vague marketing plan - Coldplay fans think they have cracked the case
The theory: we will be getting a new Coldplay single called “Higher Power” on May 7. They allege the song will contain the lyrics :
“This joy is electric/ And you’re circuiting through/ I’m so happy that I’m alive/ At the same time as you.”
They also deduct that the single will be included on an album called Alien Radio.
