The band announced the Max Martin-produced album on Instagram via a handwritten note alongside an album trailer which combines an animated cosmic journey through the album’s planetary artwork with short clips of the album’s twelve tracks.
The band’s note also seemed to hint at further sci-fi themes with the phrase ‘Everyone is an alien somewhere’.
In May, the band released Higher Power – the first single from Music Of The Spheres – which has been streamed more than 160 million times. The band’s note also revealed the imminent release of an album track called Coloratura on Friday, to be followed by a new single in September.
The band have also revealed the full album tracklisting – with five of the twelve tracks represented by emojis.
