导读:阿黛尔新专辑依然强势热卖中,同样来自英伦的酷玩乐队也推出了最新作品《满脑都是梦》。梦幻摇滚天团似乎开始从悲伤逆流成河转为积极探寻正能量了。主唱克里斯•马汀更是找来前妻和天后碧昂斯助阵。新专辑到底怎么样,听听就知道啦~
(1/1)  

Over the past few years, a sense of gloom has lingered over the British pop-rock group Coldplay. Their recent music has been heartbreaking and soulful – a dramatic departure from their earlier, spunkier days.
最近几年,英伦流行摇滚组合酷玩乐队总是笼罩在一丝忧郁之中。他们近年来的音乐多走悲情和灵魂风,同他们早期的阳光活力范儿相去甚远。

But that’s all about to change. Coldplay is ready to return to its roots.
不过一切正在改变。酷玩乐队准备好回归真我了。

A Head Full of Dreams, Coldplay’s seventh studio album, came out on Dec 4, and it might be their most upbeat production ever. Rolling Stone magazine gave the album four stars out of five and called it “an eagle’s-wings whoosh of soaring melodies, happy dance beats and [lead singer Chris Martin] at his most wide-eyed”.
酷玩乐队第七张录音室专辑《满脑都是梦》12月4日正式发行,这也是他们史上最富正能量的作品。《滚石》杂志给这张专辑打了4星(满分5星),并称其为“高昂旋律中振翅的雄鹰,和着欢快的舞曲节奏,(主唱克里斯•马汀)唱出最纯真的自我。”

The album begins with a fast-paced title track that epitomizes Coldplay’s newfound happiness and excitement. It’s an uplifting journey for the listeners.
专辑第一首歌即为同名主打歌,它是酷玩乐队新寻得的快乐和欣喜的缩影,也引领听众走上振奋的旅途。

“It’s about love and acceptance and embracing what happens to you,” Martin, 38, said to Rolling Stone.
38岁的乐队主唱马汀告诉《滚石》杂志“它是关于爱与接纳,拥抱降临在生命中的一切。”

It was only a year and a half ago that the band released its darkest album, Ghost Stories. That 2014 release was named Top Rock Album at the Billboard Music Awards, but it alienated some fans with its mournful tone.
一年半前,酷玩乐队刚发布了他们基调最阴暗的专辑——《鬼故事》。2014年发布的这张专辑摘得公告牌音乐奖最佳摇滚专辑,但它悲戚的基调也让一些乐迷敬而远之。

Critics speculate that the album was a mirror for Martin’s personal struggles. In March 2014, Martin announced that his separation from American actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The couple had more than 10 years of marriage and two children.
评论家猜测,新专辑是马汀个人生活困境的写照。2014年3月,马汀宣布同美国演员格温妮丝•帕特洛分手。这对夫妻结婚10余年,育有两个孩子。

While Ghost Stories reflects Martin’s melancholy, A Head Full of Dreams symbolizes his recovery. In one track, Hymn for the Weekend, he partners with Beyonce to deliver an anthem to love – and the delights of hard partying.
如果说《鬼故事》讲出了马汀的忧伤,那么《满脑都是梦》则预示了他的痊愈。在歌曲《周末赞美诗》中,他和碧昂斯合唱,传递了对爱情的颂赞和纵情狂欢的愉悦。

In a surprise twist, Martin features Paltrow’s singing in one of the new tracks, Everglow. It’s astonishing to hear the chemistry in their voices, even after the pair’s “conscious uncoupling”. Everglow is a deeply personal song about finding the good in what has happened. “They say people come. They say people go,” Martin sings.
令人吃惊的是,马汀还找来前妻帕特洛合作新歌《永恒闪耀》。在两人“有意分手”之后,听到他们声音碰撞出的化学反应足够让人惊异。《永恒闪耀》是一首深刻的充满个人印记的歌曲,它是关于在已经发生的事物中寻找美好的一面。马汀低吟:“他们说人来,他们说人往。”

We might have to let Coldplay go sometime in near future. For the last 19 years, the band has inspired listeners with their soulful and intelligent music, selling 80 million albums worldwide. But Martin has hinted to Consequence of Sound that Dreams could be Coldplay’s last album. If so, they’re certainly going out on a sustained note of grace.
也许在不久的将来,我们不得不接受酷玩乐队将离开的现实。在过去的19年中,这支乐队用它们启迪灵魂和充满智慧的音乐鼓舞了无数歌迷,全球唱片销量高达8000万张。不过马汀在音乐资讯网Consequence of Sound上透露,《满脑都是梦》可能是酷玩乐队的最后一张专辑。即使真要离开,他们也将成为流行音乐史上持续辉煌的传奇。
