Coldplay announced yesterday that their new album is coming out in October. It’s called “Music of the Spheres”. But what’s most interesting is that five of the 11 tracks have emojis for song titles.
They include a ringed planet, a red heart, and a sparkle. But I can’t guarantee that’s how they’ll appear on your streaming service.
Already on Apple Music, the titles are showing characters that look close, but they aren’t emojis. They’re actually called Unicode characters that are used in coding.
Back in May, Chris Martin said, “We’re trying to have the first album ever with some tracks that are just called emojis, but it’s proving tricky because of all the service providers.”
So it sounds like they anticipated the difficulty of having these characters appear consistently on multiple platforms.
