It has only been 18 months since their last album, but Coldplay is back with its seventh LP and a brand new single.
The band made the announcement on Nov. 6. The album titled A Head Full Of Dreams was recorded in Los Angeles, Malibu, and London. It was produced by Stargate and Rik Simpson.They both worked on Coldplay’s last two albums, Ghost Stories and 2011’s Mylo Xyloto.
According to the band’s website, “Coldplay have never enjoyed making a record more than this one. Nor have they been happier with the results.”
A Head Full Of Dreams includes featured guests Beyonce, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo, and Merry Clayton.
Coldplay released the first single “Adventure Of A Lifetime” from the eleven-track album and is available to listen to on Coldplay’s official Youtube channel. The new single is upbeat and repetitive, which could mean we are in for another Coldplay pop album.
With the new album comes a world tour. Only dates in Europe and South America have been officially announced. The last time Coldplay played in Michigan was in 2012 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The new album is also rumored to be their last. Last year, in an interview with BBC’s Zane Lowe, frontman Chris Martin, said “It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that.”
A Head Full Of Dreams is due out Dec. 4 through Parlophone and Atlantic Records.
