Coldplay are rumoured to release their much anticipated eighth album this November according to The Daily Star.
It's been four years since Coldplay released their seventh LP 'A Head Full of Dreams' and the band have been quiet ever since the conclusion of their world tour in late-2017.
James Cabooter of the Daily Star states that the band are said to be repeating the success of their Ghost Stories/A Head Full of Dreams releases by dropping an arty LP first ahead of a more mainstream pop album the following year.
Cabooter's source said, "The first album is the more experimental side of Coldplay, they probably won’t tour until 2020 when the next one arrives."
Following the release of his Coldplay biopic, we interviewed director Mat Whitecross last November on the future of the band: "I think whatever they do next is going to be different and surprising... They’re definitely hatching something."
Whitecross also stated that the hiatus will last a year, confirming rumours that November is a possible release date for a new album. "Chris is certainly in the studio every single day, he’s writing new songs all the time." states Whitecross.
Chris Martin has appeared numerous times over the past year, most notably under the pseudonym 'Los Unidades' and with Global Citizen.
A close source to Coldplaying has confirmed that the band have 100% been recording new material for upcoming releases since at least May of this year. Our source points to a session in London back in May and recording sessions were confirmed by French media in July.
Our friends over at ColdplayXtra have done some digging into the Daily Star journalist and found his track record to be trustworthy.
With Daily Star & if we can trust it: the journalist seems to have some good musical connections & where there's smoke .... ?
