Coldplay have released details about their upcoming album, their seventh, which is called “A Head Full of Dreams.” Out Dec. 4 on Parlaphone/Atlantic, the record features several guests including Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo, and Merry Clayton.

    What’s wrong with you people! Crazy!! Coldplay is wonderful! I am so excited for any new music they release!!

    I don’t know. For me, Coldplay hasn’t made a great album since X&Y. While their new albums have a few good songs, they kind of sound a bit generic and poppy. I mean I guess they always have but they had more unique songs in there first few albums. I’ll probably still buy this album though.

    Great song from probably one of the world’s most popular bands. This album will be gigantic and their subsequent tour will be their most successful. Cynics love to say boring and unforgettable, but they are hardly going to stop this global powerhouse.

  4. LOL says:

    Yup, music for people that don’t like music.

    Coldplay have been promising to call quits after every album, yet every year they issue a new one. One wonders what compelled them to release it so close to Christmas.

    Yawn. Unforgettable.
