Coldplay Is Teaming With BTS on 'My Universe' Single

Coldplay's upcoming Music of the Spheres album has added another celestial body to the mix. On Monday (Sept. 13), the group announced that their upcoming single, "My Universe," will feature a funky bilingual collaboration with K-pop superstars BTS.

According to a release, the Max Martin-produced song, sung in both English and Korean, will drop on Sept. 24. The track is the follow-up to the band's previous single, the buoyant "Higher Power," both of which will appear on the album due out on Oct. 15.

The BTS track will be the third taste of Coldplay's upcoming ninth album, following on the heels of the spacey, 10-and-a-half minute "Coloratura," the collection's closing track. Music of the Spheres is the follow-up to their 2019 double album Everyday Life, which led the Official U.K. Albums chart and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200. It also received a surprise Grammy nomination for album of the year, its first nod in that category in 12 years. Chris Martin and co. announced the album on Tuesday via a handwritten note on their Twitter account, along with a cosmic album visual, Overtura, on YouTube.

BTS and Coldplay singer Chris Martin recently sat down to chat about the K-pop septet's summer smash "Permission to Dance" on YouTube Originals' "Released" series.

The K-pop septet has recently been participating in high-profile collaborations. Their most recent one was alongside rapper Megan Thee Stallion, who hopped on a remix of their hit single "Butter" on Aug. 27.
