The band recently announced a tiny, late-notice gig in East London, due to take place at St-John-at-Hackney Church on December 3, with the show broadcast live on Radio One and presented by Annie Mac.

The gig will take place on December 3, and will feature tracks from the new album. Tickets go on sale at 7.45pm on Monday November 16, priced at £17.50 plus booking fees. Further details are available here on the BBC website.

Announcing the gig to Annie Mac on BBC Radio One, Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland also shared details of new album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.

“The last album was silver and blue, and this one is colour. That’s what we were going for. We wanted to have a feeling of freedom and go down whatever road we felt excited by,” Martin explained. “‘Ghost Stories’ is about dealing with some heartbreak. This is about dreams.”

Buckland added: “We just had so much fun in the studio.”

“I thought I would be over sleepless nights,” Martin said of the new album, but admitted to having suffered a few in the build up to its release. But he added, “We’re raring to go.”

Coldplay release their seventh album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ on December 4.
