Coldplay is teasing a new album(s?) through a series of heritage-styled artifacts.
First, on October 17, photos appeared in cities across the world, including Berlin, Hong Kong, Madrid, Munich, and Sydney.
One of the photos, seen below, features the band posing with German philosopher, composer, poet, philologist, and scholar Friedrich Nietzsche. The poster is dated November 22, 1919, even though Nietzsche lived from 1844 to 1900.
The date on the photo seems to tease the release date of Coldplay’s upcoming “experimental” double album. Coldplay shared news of the release through the mail (not to be confused with email).
The letter says, “In the classifieds you might write ‘double album’ for sale, one very careful owner. One half is called ‘sunrise’, the other ‘sunset’. It is out 22 November. It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation. Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will Champion.”
Coldplay’s previous album, A Head Full Of Dreams, was released in 2015. The band are set to release a new mainstream album in 2020 but it looks like we will get to hear a different side of the British rock band before 2019 ends.
Coldplay are rumoured to be headlining the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury, to take place next summer.
