Looks like something's coming very soon...
More posters teasing Colplday‘s much-rumoured new “experimental” album have appeared across the world, with new images spotted in Berlin, Hong Kong, Madrid, Munich and Sydney. You can take a look below.
The campaign first began earlier this month with an identical poster in São Paulo put up and then swiftly removed, with fans theorising that it had accidentally been put up early, with today (Thursday October 17) the correct date.
The appearance of at least five new posters today seems to confirm this to be true, while the band’s recent updating of their profile picture to a sun and moon are leading to heavy speculation that new material is en route very soon.
Chris Martin and co. are said to be making their return with an “arty” record before the year’s out, ahead of dropping a more “mainstream” effort which is slated for a 2020 release.
“The first album is the more experimental side of Coldplay, they probably won’t tour until 2020 when the next one arrives,” a source recently told The Daily Star.
Amid these whispers, fansite Coldplaying reported on October 15 that promotional artwork for the first LP had appeared in São Paulo. The outlet claims that the poster was put up at Paulista metro station, only to be removed from public view just hours later.
The black and white vintage-inspired shot, which sees the band sat with German philosopher, poet, and composer Friedrich Nietzsche, displays the date November 22, 1919.
Fans are now speculating that this points towards the album release date or the arrival of the project’s lead single.
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.
Meanwhile, Coldplay are currently among the rumoured acts for Glastonbury 2020.
