The English rock quartet make announcement that 2017 will see their first EP since 2014s’ ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’
It’s nearly a year since they released their hugely successful seventh studio album, A Head Full Of Dreams and English rock quartet Coldplay have announced that they will release a new EP next year.
Taking to Twitter to reveal the news, the band said: “Hello everyone. We’re working on some new songs for next year. It’s called the Kaleidoscope EP.” Kaleidoscope will be the band’s first EP since 2014s’ A Sky Full Of Stars’.
Band leader Chris Martin had suggested earlier this year that A Head Full Of Dreams might be the band’s last “conventional” album. He said: “We’re comfortable with being who we are at the moment. I think when we let go of the idea we had to try and win everyone over I think that was really liberating.”
Continuing: “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.”
Coldplay have released 7 studio albums, 4 live albums, 6 compilation albums, 11 extended plays and 42 singles since they began in 1996, selling more than 80 million records worldwide in the process.
