coldplay new album november – Coldplay New Album ‘Everyday Life’ Will Be Band’s First In Four Years

ColdplayA new Coldplay album, before today, sounded like something that would be in a head full of dreams. There have been circulating rumors of Coldplay not touring again, but they were mainly based on one statement leadsinger Chris Martin made on their last tour. In an Daily Telegraph interview, he said that the band don’t believe they’ve ‘said it all’ but are satisfied with the music they’ve produced and hence they most likely won’t produce a new album after their last one “A Head Full of Dreams”. This statement was solely pointed to their motivation of producing a new album though – not especially to their will of not touring again in the future.

Coldplay invited Oxfam to campaign at all dates on their recent A Head Full Of Dreams” tour, to help spread the word about our Stand As One campaign , in support of people forced to flee conflict and disaster.

Regardless of influence or what you think of them, they will get in. Coldplay is proving a stable commercial force and this is the kind of anthemic stuff that gets bands the “important” status whether or not they actually deserve it. It wouldn’t bother me if they did get in, it would just make them seem more important than they actually are.


Shortly afterward, the band launched its A Head Full of Dreams Tour. The massively successful tour crossed five continents, logging 114 sold-out performances in 83 venues, before wrapping in November 2017. The undertaking generated a whopping $523 million, making it Billboard’s third highest-grossing tour since the publication first started keeping track in 1990.

Chris Martin was born Christopher Anthony John Martin on March 2, 1977, in Exeter, Devon, England, the eldest of five children to a teacher and an accountant. His interests in music developed at a young age and he formed his first band, The Rocking Honkies, while he was attending the preparatory Exeter Cathedral School.

Coldplay 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. The band’s second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head, was released to critical acclaim and won many awards, including NME’s Album of the Year. Their next release, X&Y, the best-selling album worldwide in 2005, received mostly positive reviews, though some critics felt it was inferior to its predecessor.

Continuing their experimentation with non-rock genres, the band dipped into synth-forward electronic and hip-hop beats for their fifth studio set, 2011’s concept album Mylo Xyloto, which was produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green, and Rik Simpson (the official press release added “with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno”). Topping charts across the globe, Mylo Xyloto also yielded a handful of hit singles, including “Princess of China” with Rihanna and their second number one, “Paradise.” As with past eras, Mylo was memorialized with Live 2012, which followed a hugely successful world tour that included a special performance at the London Paralympics closing ceremony.

For Irish fans it seems to be quite sure though that Coldplay will play a show at Slane Castle next year as you can read in the Irish Mirror If they are right, this would underline the bands willingness to play future shows. And as we’ve seen in the past years in this case a new Coldplay tour in 2019 might not be far away, at least in parts of the world.

As rumors spread regarding potential new Coldplay music, a select few fans have received mysterious letters from the band teasing a possible double album.


There’s always been a broad corridor of stomach-wrenching hate reserved for Coldplay among British music fans. In fact, ever since they informed us that the stars in the sky are indeed yellow, it’s almost as if we haven’t been able to talk about them without referencing how innocuously tepid their form of shower-grout prosaicism is.

Known for their soulful lyrics and eclectic range of musical styles, the British alternative rock band Coldplay has been a household name for over a decade. Since their formation in the late 1990s, Coldplay has become one of the most commercially successful and globally recognized music groups.

After some cryptic posters popped up around the world recently, Coldplay have confirmed that they will be releasing a double album on November 22nd. This will be the band’s eighth album and follows 2015’s A Head Full of Dreams.

It was their single Yellow” released in 2000, that launched the band to instant international acclaim, and their debut album, Parachutes, followed later that year, receiving Mercury Prize nominations. Coldplay’s second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head, released in 2002, also received widespread critical praise and won a range of awards, including the prestigious Album of the Year award from NME. The next album release was X & Y, which was also well received, and the fourth album release was Viva la Vida, or Death and All His Friends in 2008, which earned them a number of wins at the Grammy Awards. Their fifth album, Mylo Xyloto was a chart topper in 34 countries.

As a result, the band became one of the most commercially successful acts of the new millennium, with over 80 million albums sold – even if along with the acclaim came a vocal opposition, due to the supposedly derivative nature, the overtly emotional lyrics, and the fact they’re good-mannered English boys instead of wild rockstars. As a result, Coldplay are thought as either a punchline showing all that’s wrong with 21st century rock, or a really good if overplayed band with songs tailor made for stadium performances.

Coldplay began teasing a new album last week Around the same time the Daily Star reported an experimental” Coldplay album was on the way, posters promoting the release began popping up around the world. The weathered-looking images showed the band in old-timey garb with a drumhead reading The Wedding Band Dance Orchestra” and featured the date November 22, 1919, leading many to believe the album would be out on November 22, 2019. This past weekend, the band posted a teaser video with the same image and a snippet of ancient-sounding orchestral music that reminds me of the Beatles’ Good Night.” And now fans have begun receiving mail from the band confirming a new album — nay, a new double album — called Everyday Life.

Coldplay formed in 1996 by Chris Martin and guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London (UCL), under the name Pectoralz. Martin was born in Whitestone, Exeter, Devon, the eldest of five children. He found his passion for music at a young age. He boarded at Sherborne School in Dorset and where he met future Coldplay manager Phil Harvey. While at UCL (where he read Ancient World Studies and graduated with first-class honours degree in Greek and Latin), he met future Coldplay bandmates Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Guy Berryman.

Coldplay might not ever be the coolest band in the world, but they’re aware of their limitations in that field and some to have made peace with that. You get the sense that Martin would like to be more of a fingers-up, mad fer it Gallagher type of rock star, but he’s also self-aware enough to know he couldn’t pull that persona off. Instead, he gets the piss taken out of him by the Gallagher brothers, Liam once astutely assessing that he looks like a geography teacher”.

Coldplay’s emergence was perfectly timed; in 2000, Oasis had sacked two of its founding members and embraced psychedelic experimentation on Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. Radiohead had just released their follow-up to OK Computer, the experimental Kid A to mixed reviews, (but big sales).

Along with the clip, the band have posted a short video made to look like an old photograph with the date ‘November 22, 1919′ fading slowly into view on top of it.

During 1997, Martin had met then Classics student Tim Rice-Oxley and asked each other to play off their own songs on the piano. Martin, finding Rice-Oxley to be talented, asked him to be Coldplay’s keyboard player but Rice-Oxley refused as his own band, Keane, was already active.

The letter comes after last week’s posters saw the band favouring a black and white vintage-inspired shot, featuring the band sat with German philosopher, poet, and composer Friedrich Nietzsche and the date November 22, 1919.

British rockers Coldplay burst onto the scene in 1996, and by the dawn of the new millennium had claimed their first international hit with the single “Yellow.” This documentary chronicles that journey. Charting a remarkable evolution, the film tells the band’s story, from their University College London beginnings to their present-day superstar status. None of the band’s music is included.

A lot of people will tell you the problem with Coldplay is their music. That it’s so tiresome it’s like running through the desert only to reach an oasis of airy nothingness. And often, it is. Yet there are moments in their songs that are so universal, it’s difficult to believe that even the band’s most forthright detractors haven’t been touched by them at some point – even if by accident. The big singles – Clocks”, Fix You”, Yellow”, In My Place”, Strawberry Swing”, Viva La Vida”, The Scientist” – undeniably possess a melodic quality that allows them to soar and transcend mass swathes of people.

Hate Coldplay, but among rock bands (even though I know they are more pop than rock) they’re probably the last first ballot if their career keeps going like that.

The group, which has been largely off the radar for the past few months, began teasing a new album last week. Posters promoting the release began popping up in major cities across the world, with the musicians dressed like an old-time ragtime band with a bass drum reading The Wedding Band Dance Orchestra” and the date November 22, 1919. Over the weekend, the band posted a teaser video with the same image and a snippet of period music.


With mysterious posters appearing in locations around the globe, the band have sent letters to fans hinting at their intentions. I too consider Radiohead a 00s band and they definitely are one of the best bands now. Coldplay are okay.

Sales: Probably the biggest selling british band of recent times. It will be a double album, split into two halves, called Sunrise and Sunset, and released on 22 November.
