Cold Play to Release A Head Full of Dreams
Coldplay have announced the global release of their seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams, out via Parlophone Records on Friday, December 4.
It is preceded by the single, ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’, which is available now.
The album, recorded in Malibu, LA and London, was produced by Norwegian duo Stargate together with the band’s long-time collaborator Rik Simpson.
It features more guests than any previous Coldplay record, with Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton among those appearing across its 11 tracks (12 if you count the buried treasure of the hidden track ‘X Marks The Spot’).
Cold Play chose not to tour their previous album Ghost Stories, their sixth consecutive worldwide chart topper, award winner and multi-million selling album. The band headed straight back into the studio to record A Head Full of Dreams.
Revitalised, they’ve made an album that’s bursting with energy, colour and big, lifeaffirming moments such as the deliciously ebullient first single ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’ and the rocket-powered ‘Hymn For The Weekend’.
Coldplay have never enjoyed making a record more than this one. Nor have they been happier with the results.
And, this time, they plan to take it around the world!
