Coldplay’s seventh studio album, A Head Full of Dreams will be released on December 4th, a year after entering the studio. The new album will feature some special guests in the form of fellow music heavyweights such as, Beyonce and Noel Gallagher. The news will delight Coldplay’s huge fanbase and like all of us here at RMW, we’re sure fans will be counting down the days.
“Yellow” hitmakers, Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion gave fans a taste of what to expect from the new record, when the first single, “Adventure of a Lifetime” was played in full on the early-morning BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show.
Coldplay singer, Chris Martin was live in the studio and fueled rumours that the band is tipped to headline next year’s Glastonbury Festival.
When questioned about the subject the singer said, “Wouldn’t that be wonderful? We’d love to do it. That’s our spiritual home, as a band. Maybe we should have called ahead and asked them. I went this year and I took my daughter Apple and it was just so lovely to go with her and see it through her eyes. We spent a lot of the time going around looking at all the amazing [things] like circus performers and all that, and then we watched a bit of Pharrell who was amazing, and Burt Bacharach who was also amazing. It was just wonderful.”
The singer gave fans a hint as to what to expect from the upcoming album saying, “It’s the sound of us being free and happy and very grateful to be in our group.
“I think we had a really clear idea of where we wanted to get to with this thing called A Head Full of Dreams. We always wanted it to come out before the end of this year and it gradually moved later and later throughout the year but we just didn’t want to give up on that.
“The last album [Ghost Stories] was a more intimate and quiet kind of album but I think we’d like to go on tour quite soon, so maybe early next year.”
A Head Full of Dreams was recorded straight after the release of the band’s last album, Ghost Stories.The four-piece will be hoping their new album matches the previous success of the other six.
Hinting that this album may be their last, Martin told BBC Radio 1 last year, “It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something.
“I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”
Until then, we’ll look forward to the new album and if it is to be the last, then we’ll have to savor it.
