Firstly, the extract from this week’s NME magazine is below, with huge thanks to @Coldplayatlas for uploading and posting the transcript.
“When Chris Martin replied to a chat show host’s inquiry as to whether Coldplay would be touring 2014’s ‘Ghost Stories’ with a curt ‘no’, you’ll have been forgiven for thinking his and Gwyneth Paltrow’s conscious uncoupling had left him destroyed – not so. It turns out that last year’s low key, electro-ballad ‘mope fest’ was always intended to be swiftly followed by a more commericial accompaniment, tentatively titled ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’, and world tour. And that, folks, might be farewell. Martin has hinted at the band undergoing a conscious ‘unrockulating’ after this album. ‘It’s like the last Harry Potter book”, he said. ‘Not to say there might not be another thing one day…’. There’s also speculation that Coldplay could headline Glastonbury 2015, suggesting a summer-friendly release.”
