Not only did Chris Martin and BTS drop this gem “My Universe,” into our universe recently, they also debuted two versions of the song. The original version is a high energy rock/pop song while the newly released take gives us a stripped-back acoustic recording and the Supernova 7 mix, courtesy of Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman. This new accoustic take on “My Universe” follows the release of Coldplay and BTS’ Inside My Universe documentary. The 13-minute film follows both bands as they record their collaboration in Korea with insight from Chris Martin recounting how the union came to be. We’ve linked the mini documentary below for you to enjoy this Music Crush Monday. Of their collaboration Chris Martin said he was unsure of how their genre’s would blend, but after giving BTS’ music a listen and watching their videos he became convinced that it had to happen. Chris’ friend mentioned the term “My Universe” and as they say “the rest was history.” In the documentary it is revealed that Coldplay even made sure to add a dance break into the song. “My Universe,” is a very collaborative track with RM, Suga, and J-Hope all writing the lyrics alongside Coldplay. Both bands hope one day to be able to perform the music in front of their fans together on stage, a dream (kinda) come true during September 25th’s Global Citizen concert. BTS performed via digital stream with Coldplay. It’s a heartfelt message about unity. Something we can all agree we need more of. Enjoy the new song, and let us know what you think about the documentary.
