Coldplay fans, we have some good news and some bad news.
In an interview with BBC 1's Zane Lowe on Thursday, Chris Martin revealed that the band is already working on their next album. It's tentatively titled A Head Full of Dreams and will be Coldplay's seventh studio album.
Now here's the (potentially) bad news: it could be their last.
"It's our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it's like the last Harry Potter book or something like that," Martin said. "Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something."
Now that doesn't sound too dire, but Martin continued: "I have to think of it as the final thing we're doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it."
Ghost Storieswas released on May 16, 2014, opening at the top of the Billboard 200 chart and earning the biggest debut of the year at the time (they've since been topped by Taylor Swift's massive 1989).
