“Working with BTS was absolutely wonderful. They were so lovely, so kind, and obviously unbelievably talented. And we’re so grateful for them, for singing on the song.”

Chris Martin added how it felt like a dream come true.

“It’s just been an amazing pleasure, and more than we could have dreamed.”

As per custom, the hosts asked if there was any message they would like to give to BTS, Chris Martin gave a simple yet powerful reply:

“The only message we’d like to send to BTS is to say, ‘Thank you, and we love you.'”

The duo also introduced their album Music of Spheres, sharing that it’s about all the different emotions and relationships everyone has been going through. In particular, they mentioned “love, loss, pain of truth, happiness, friendship, things that we all experience”.

Meanwhile, BTS isn’t the only Korean collaboration Coldplay has worked on in their latest album. For their music video for Higher Power, the group collaborated with Ambiguous Dance Company, a South Korean experimental dance company.
