Coldplay Releases New Song, Talk New Album and… Beyoncé

Coldplay 7


Coldplay had an eventful evening at the French NRJ Award Show. The British band, made famous by their hit song “Yellow off of their first album, Parachutes, has played a song from their soon to be released seventh studio album.

The band announced that their new album, A Head Full of Dreams, will be released on December 5th of this year. From the single, Adventure Of A Lifetime, that was performed at the French Award Show, we have to say that the new album is probably going to sound unlike anything we’ve heard from Coldplay before. Although the band has changed their sound progressively over the years, never before have they released a song with such a disco sound and happy mood. The disco-esque beat makes sense when you listen to the lyrics too, with Chris crooning, “I feel my heart beating, I feel my heart underneath my skin, I feel my heart beating, Oh, you make me feel, Like I’m alive again”. 

Considering his split from Gwyneth Paltrow, we can’t help but wonder if Chris’s song is about a new love or a fling – perhaps even the famous Jennifer Lawrence! Regardless of who the song is directed to, it has certainly set us up with anticipation for the full album’s release. The band has shared some intriguing collaborations which will be present on the 12 track album, including a song with Beyoncé. Other artists contributing to the album include Oasis’s Noel Gallagher and Tove Lo.

Still, there is a bit of sad news too – Chris Martin has shared that this seventh album is likely to be the band’s last full piece of work. In his own words, the album is “like the last Harry Potter Book…this is the completion of something.”

However, this might mean it is an incredible album, with Chris also mentioning that seeing it as the last album means the whole band is giving it their all and putting “everything into it”. So although we hope the band changes their mind in the future, we’re pretty excited to hear what they’ve got for us!
