Coldplay Releases New Single, Sets Date for New Album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ (Audio)

Listen to “Adventure of a Lifetime” now

Coldplay will be releasing their next album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” on Dec. 4.

The group announced the arrival on Friday while debuting their first single from it, “Adventure of a Lifetime” on BBC Radio 1.

Frontman Chris Martin described the new album as “the sound of us being free and happy and very grateful to be in our group.”

The record will feature Beyonce, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton. “A Head Full of Dreams” was produced with longtime collaborator Rik Simpson and Norwegian pop production team Stargate.

According to Martin, the record had been “handed in” three weeks ago as the band set a deadline before the end of year.

“It gradually moved later and later, we but we came in relatively on time,” he said.

The band is also planning to tour early next year. In previous interviews with the BBC, Martin hinted that Coldplay’s new album could be their last.

“It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that,” he said. “Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something. I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”
