Coldplay will reportedly release a new album in November, nearly four years after issuing its seventh studio effort, 2015's A Head Full Of Dreams. Sources told the U.K.'s Daily Star that the new disc will be one of two the band is working on.
The November release will reportedly show “the more experimental side of Coldplay.” A second LP, described as a “more mainstream pop collection,” will arrive afterwards in 2020 and will be followed by a world tour.
A Brazilian fan page for Coldplay singer Chris Martin has also pointed to the appearance of a mysterious poster in a São Paulo subway station on Monday (October 14th). The poster, which shows a photo of the band and is weirdly dated November 22nd, 1919, was removed by Tuesday, allegedly because it was put up too early.
Coldplay collaborator Mat Whitecross revealed in 2018 that the band would get to work on their eighth studio effort this year, telling NME, “I've heard a few things and filmed a few bits of them talking about it, but I don't think I'm allowed to share anything. It's interesting.”
A Head Full Of Dreams, which was released in 2015, was followed by a companion EP and concert film.
