Chris Martin popped into the Beats 1 studios the other night to have a chat with DJ, Zane Lowe on all things Coldplay.
It was a rumour started by the frontman himself, stating before the release of A Head Full Of Dreams, when last talking to Zane Lowe that their seventh effort could be their last. Chris said that the latest album “It’s our seventh thing and the way we look at it it’s like the last Harry Potter book. That’s not to say there won’t be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something”.
The band are about start touring in the States after a series of shows in Latin America and are soon to return to the UK for a series of concerts across the country, closest to Liverpool being the Etihad in Manchester on June 4th.
Setting fans into a panic of a potential split based on his Harry Potter reference, the Coldplay singer added to his previous comments while sat down with Zane Lowe on Thursday night; “I don’t think we’d split up as a band, so hopefully we’ll try to work out something to do at some point. But also part of me right now just feels like, yeah seven albums, that’s great and they form a kind of circle and they all make sense to me now and I feel really proud of them.”
He built us up with that quote, only to knock us back down with doubt over their future again.
It felt like he dug a hole and couldn’t get back out when adding, “I’d be surprised if there was another conventional Coldplay album. I just feel like we’re right where we’re supposed to be right now. I meant what I said to you a couple of years ago, I feel like this is a closing chapter of something. I stand by that I’m afraid.”
At this moment in time, we still don’t know where the future of Coldplay is heading after the A Head Full Of Dreams tour and by the look of it, the band don’t either.
