Marking their seventh album since 2000, British alternative rock band Coldplay announced that they are set to release “A Head Full of Dreams” on December 4, 2015.
The album, as lead singer Chris Martin shared in Magic Radio’s Green Room with Jo Parkerson, is a follow through of their 2014 album “Ghost Stories”, thus making its vibe “colorful and free-sounding.”
Martin’s ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, will be featured on the album, among other top-notch music artists. The song which Paltrow will sing, is the album’s fourth track, Everglow, which was ‘her idea’ and her lyrics, Martin says.
It consists of 11 tracks with A Head Full of Dreams as the lead single, followed by: Birds, Hymn for the Weekend, Everglow, Adventure of a Lifetime, Fun, Kaleidoscope, Army of One, Amazing Day, Color Spectrum, and Up&Up.
So far, Coldplay’s Youtube channel uploaded last Nov. 25 a video compilation of clips from these tracks here
On on hand, after the release of Ghost Stories last year, fans went sentimental not because of the album’s tone, but because of the rumors that started to spread about the ending of their band once the seventh album breathes into life.
In a December 6, 2014 report by Hollywood Life, Coldplay’s front man says, “It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that…”
This time, 2015, in Green Room, when asked about the truth of the rumors, Chris Martin said that “We’re definitely not ending the band, that’s the main thing… I don’t know what we’ll do after this one.”
