Chris Martin Shares The Date Coldplay Will Stop Releasing New Music
Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin spoke to BBC Radio 2 presenter Jo Whiley as a part of a private event and he revealed the date that the band will stop recording and releasing new songs. Whiley shared the date and her own ideas about Martin’s words on Wednesday’s The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.
On July 20, 2021, Coldplay unveiled the release date of their upcoming album and then released their ninth studio album entitled ‘Music of the Spheres’ on October 15, 2021. Some of its tracks, ‘Music of the Spheres,’ ‘Higher Power,’ and ‘Humankind’ became more popular than the other songs in the album. In addition to the release, the band decided to start their new world tour to promote their latest album.
The band announced that their Music of the Spheres World Tour will start on March 18, 2022, in San José and end on October 29, 2022, in Buenos Aires. The tour is described as Coldplay’s return after five years of a break and was part of the band’s environmental project. During the tour, Coldplay will use a combination of lightweight, low-carbon, and re-usable materials to raise awareness about the ongoing environmental pollution problem.
Even though both the album and tour announcement made their fans very happy and excited, they became worried after Martin’s statements about the band’s future records. According to radio personality, Jo Whiley, Martin stated that Coldplay won’t release any new albums after 2025 except for some special collaborations. The singer also added that they might continue touring. Whiley added that she’s not sure about it was a joke or not but defined it as a ‘huge revelation.’
In Martin’s words, he said:
“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. Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalog as it was finished then.”
Jo Whiley added:
“He’s going to be a DJ for the night. We play Christmas songs, we talk about Christmas past, what it’s like at the moment, and the future too. He’s always very funny and I’m never quite sure if he’s joking or being deadly serious. Towards the end of the time we spent together he shared something pretty honest and pretty intimate which was a huge revelation.”
It seems that Chris Martin’s latest statement about the band’s decision not to produce any albums a few years after will be criticized by their fans who thought that the band will continue to compose, write, and release for decades considering Coldplay’s commercial success and longevity.
