Coldplay have confirmed details of their new double album ‘Everyday Life’ – with the first part coming next month.
Last week, the band teased their return with a series of images which were spotted in Berlin, Hong Kong, Sydney and other cities across the globe. They also changed their social media profile picture to an image of a sun and moon, sparking speculation that their rumoured “experimental” album is on the way.
Now, the band have shared a letter that was sent to fans across the globe – revealing that they’ll release a double album on November 22 – split into two halves called ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’ respectively.
The letter states: “In the classifieds you might write ‘double album’ for sale, one very careful owner. One half is called ‘sunrise’, the other ‘sunset’. It is out 22 November.
“It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation. Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will Champion.”
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.
Coldplay, who haven’t released an album since 2015’s acclaimed ‘A Head Full Of Dreams‘, were believed to be releasing a new record in 2019 after friend and collaborator Mat Whitecross previously told NME that they were due to regroup and take a “surprising turn“ with their output.
“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. It’s interesting,” he explained.
They are also are currently among the rumoured headliners for Glastonbury 2020.
