Last year, Coldplay released their sixth full-length album, Ghost Stories. It generated the well-played “A Sky Full Of Stars”, which, for me, was a return of sorts to the kind of dreamy Pop that the band has done so well with. After A Rush Of Blood To The Head (2002), I fell off to the wayside with the music that Coldplay had decided to move forward with. When I heard “A Sky Full Of Stars”, and a few of the other tracks from the album (“Magic”, “True Love”, “Ink”), I felt much better about the band.
On December 4, Coldplay will release their seventh effort, A Head Full Of Dreams. The new title is planned to be released on CD, DD, and a pink and blue colored, 180g-weight 2LP set (which includes digital download rights).
Strangely, Coldplay is calling this this farewell release. After its issue, the band is expected to call it a completed day. They have not ruled out another album i the future, but, as far as they seemed to be concerned, this is the culmination of a successful career.
You can listen to the official audio of their pre-release single, “Adventure Of A Lifetime” below. It has the band’s signature dream pop sound. For me, it did not reach out and grab as “A Sky Full Of Stars”. But who am I to judge on the first offering in an album “full of” songs?
