Coldplay Announce Double Album In Letters To Fans | Music News
British band Coldplay is set to realease a new album on November 22. The new LP, actually, will be a “double album”, one half called “sunrise” and the other “sunset”, as the band explained through mysterious letters, which were sent to some of their fans. “For the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life”, the band writes.
These letters have triggered fans’ excitement all around the globe, but represent only the last of a series of recent evidences. Indeed, black-and-white posters appeared in many cities like Madrid, Berlin, Hong Kong, and Sydney, showing Coldplay members dressed as a 1920s wedding band, and accompained by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
The poster was then posted on social media, where the date 22th November 1919 appeared. The 1919-2019 gap represents the 100 years that the band refers to in the letters. Moreover, the official Coldplay website homepage has been updated to show a logo of the sun and moon, reflecting what we now know to be the album logo and title.
The new project follows collaborator Mat Whitecross‘s statement about a “surprising turn“ with the band’s output: “I’ve heard a few things and filmed a few bits of them talking about it, but I don’t think I’m allowed to share anything. It’s interesting.” he explained.
This project will be the band’s eighth album and follows 2015’s A Head Full of Dreams, which spawned a 122-date world tour, which grossed $523 million (£402 million) at the box office. We are sure that Coldplay will reveal a new world tour very soon to accompany their new album.
