Coldplay’s New Album Might Be Their Last

Good news, Coldplay fans; the band will be releasing a new album.

But sadly, the good news also comes with some bad news; it might be the band’s last record, at least according to frontman Chris Martin.

Martin was on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier in the day to celebrate the band’s song, “Magic” from Ghost Stories, being named the “Hottest Record of the Year.”

While on the show, Martin revealed that less than a year after releasing Ghost Stories (which was released earlier this year), the band had headed into the studio to record some new music. What came from that recording session would become their seventh album which at present time is tentatively titled, A Head Full of Dreams.

While discussing the record, Martin compared A Head Full of Dreams to the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, giving the impression that this might be the band;s final record.

“It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something,” said Martin.

He added, “I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”

Even if the seventh album does become their last, one thing Martin has promised fans is that they will be heading out on tour in support of the record which we can assume will not be like the Ghost Stories tour which only included six stops, worldwide.

Listen to Bastille’s ‘Drive’ Re-Scoring Contribution


“Pompeii” be damned because Bastille have released another song from their upcoming mixtape, VS. (Other People’s Heartache, Part 3) which is due out in December.

Last week, the British band released their first new track in a long time; a song titled “Torn Apart.” The new song made its grand debut the only way any high profiled song does, especially if you are from across the pond: on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Today, Bastille have gone ahead and released another new track from the upcoming record, a tune named “The Driver.”

“The Driver” will also be featured on the soundtrack for BBC’s re-scoring of the the Ryan Gosling-starring film, Drive. Zane Lowe will be acting as curator for the re-scoring soundtrack. The BBC is set to air the film on Oct. 30 with the new soundtrack scoring it. But sorry kids, the broadcast will only take place in the United Kingdom.

Check out the stream of the new track below.

Bastille frontman Dan Smith had recently said that the band was trying to record a new album, but it does not come as a surprise that it’s been a little hard to get to the studio with all the live performance, tour dates, and festivals the “Bad Blood” group have been on since “Pompeii” launched them to stardom.

Sia’s ‘Catching Fire’ Song Debuts


Last week was a good week for news concerning the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. 

Everyday, it looked like the people behind the major film were giving fans news about the soundtrack as a way to hold them over until the sequel opens up in theaters.

First, there was news that The National were almost left off the soundtrack because their contribution had been too dark; they ended up being on the soundtrack at the end. Then Christina Aguilera announced via Twitter that she had been working on a new song that would only be seen (or heard) on the soundtrack.

Following that announcement, the full list of musicians and their songs had been released, revealing a mixed bag of artists making it on the album. On Friday, a Seattle radio station debuted a live version of the Lumineers’ contribution, “Gale Song” from a show that the band had performed at.

And just when you think that wasn’t enough to tide you over until November, today, Sia’s song for the soundtrack made its own debut on the internet. The song which is titled, “Elastic Heart” premiere on Zane Lowe’s radio show on BBC Radio 1. The song which not only features the Titanium singer, but also The Weeknd and Diplo is currently available online, or you can just simply listen to it here.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due out on November 22 with the soundtrack coming out that Tuesday, November 19.
