Coldplay has made it official: in four years, they’re going to stop making new music.
In an interview with BBC Radio 2 presenter Jo Whiley, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin revealed that their 12th studio album, which they plan to release by 2025, will be the iconic band’s last-ever project, claiming that their discography “finishes then.”
“Well I know I can tell you — our last proper record will come out in 2025 and after that, I think we will only tour,” Chris said. “Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalog, as it were, finishes then.”
The singer previously told NME that Coldplay only planned to release 12 albums. As of writing, they have dropped nine in total including their recently launched “Music Of The Spheres” in which they famously collaborated with Kpop band BTS for the song “My Universe.”
“It’s a lot to pour everything into making them. I love it and it’s amazing, but it’s very intense too,” Chris had said to NME at the time. “I feel like because I know that challenge is finite, making this music doesn’t feel difficult, it feels like, this is what we’re supposed to be doing.”
Coldplay is set to do a world tour beginning March 2022 for their new album.
