According to their friend and collaborator Mat Whitecross Coldplay are set to return next year to work on a new album. The band have been quiet for much of 2018, but now it seems that they’ll be back in the studio soon.
“They’re on a sabbatical at the moment so they’ve been ruthlessly on holiday for a year,” Whitecross told NME. “They’ve never done that before. I don’t know if you can call Chris a workaholic because he loves what he does. He’s in and out of the studio writing three or four songs a day.”
Asked if he knew anything about where the band plan to take their sound on their upcoming album, Whitecross replied: “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.”
Whitecross who is also the director of “Oasis:Supersonic” has just released “A Head Full Of Dreams“, a new film that tells the full 20-year history of Coldplay through personal and unseen footage.
Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996 by lead singer Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland. The band achieved worldwide fame with the release of the song “Yellow” in 2000, followed in the same year by their debut album Parachutes, which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Coldplay have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
