Band cryptically post the same geometric pattern seen on London Underground poster on their Twitter page
Coldplay appear to have confirmed a mysterious poster recently spotted on a London Underground platform, featuring a colourful ‘flower of life’ geometric pattern is artwork for their new album.
Fans of the group took to social media recently to claim the advert which also had the date December 4 below it (see below) is for Coldplay’s seventh album, citing a similar design on frontman Chris Martin’s t-shirt at the recent Global Citizen Festival in New York.
This afternoon (November 2) the band cryptically posted the same artwork on their Twitter page leading fans to speculate an official album announcement is imminent.
Coldplay’s new album is expected to be called ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ and will follow on from 2014’s ‘Ghost Stories’.
The band recently played new song ‘Amazing Day’ at Global Citizen Festival. See footage of that performance below.
Speaking about the new album previously, Chris Martin said: “It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something… I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”
Coldplay are favourites to headline next year’s Glastonbury Festival, according to recent bookmakers’ odds.
William Hill gave Chris Martin and co odds of 4/1 to headline the Pyramid Stage, having last headlined the event in 2011.
“Coldplay could make a welcome return to the Pyramid stage this year and that will no doubt cheer the masses as they wait and refresh their computers on Sunday morning in the race to bag some Glastonbury tickets,” says William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
