Coldplay Says There ‘Won’t Not Be’ A New Album On The Way – UPROXX

Posted: May 9, 2021 at 11:14 am

Coldplay just released their new single, Higher Power. While that seems to indicate the band has a new album on the way, they havent officially announced one yet although Chris Martin has done everything he can to let fans know that one is more than likely on the way.

Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland spoke to Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp this morning (as NME notes), and when asked about the possibility of a new album, Martin chose his words carefully. That said, he did everything but directly say the band has a record coming, saying, Were not supposed to say, but there wont not be one. Buckland added, Weve recorded more than one song.

Elsewhere, Martin spoke with Apple Musics Zane Lowe, and while he didnt talk about the album that doesnt officially exist, he did speak about his willingness to experiment musically, saying, I think that every artist is completely intertwined with whats happening culturally and whats happening technologically around them, you know? So when the delay pedal came through, whoever invented that, then you had all these amazing delay pedal records. So weve existed in the band concurrently with the barriers between types of music coming down which for us is the biggest blessing in the world. When we started, it was like, Youre a white indie band and this is urban radio and this is alternative radio and basically old fashioned racist statements. Of course we fit in a box at the beginning, and then right now in 2021, everyones doing everything. You can like Olivia Rodrigo as much as you like AC/DC and no one thinks thats weird, and thats musical utopia for me. [] Its miraculous. So why would you want to stay in one box?

Coldplay is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
