The four-piece band has been on a hiatus from making music ever since they released “A Head Full of Dreams” in 2015 and ended their accompanying world tour in 2017.

And now, a source reports that they are going to make a much-awaited comeback with a new LP at the end of November followed by a more “mainstream” release in 2020—which is also exactly how they released the “Ghost Stories” and “A Head Full of Dreams” album combo.

“The first album is the more experimental side of Coldplay, they probably won’t tour until 2020 when the next one arrives,” according to the source.

Two weeks after the rumor spread, Coldplay finally confirmed the news on their Twitter account!

The band first posted a short teaser video of themselves in ragtime band clothing while the date “November 22, 1919” slowly appeared.

They then posted another Tweet with a typewritten letter addressed to their fans.

“For the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life. In the classifieds you might write ‘double album for sale, one very careful owner.’ One half is called ‘sunrise’, the other ‘sunset’. It comes out 22 November. It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation,” they wrote.

The monthlong wait begins!
