Is Coldplay’s ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ Dropping In December?
UPDATE (11/3/15): Or maybe this is the album cover?

Coldplay have been working on their seventh album, A Head Full Of Dreams, for almost a year, and now it appears the Ghost Stories follow-up could be here before the year ends. The news comes via a mysterious poster that appeared in the London underground with a hexagonal pattern made up of circles, with what you must admit is a color palette that isn’t too far removed from Coldplay’s X&Y and Mylo Xyloto eras. The poster’s only text reads “December 4.”

Soon enough, internet sleuths pointed out that the pattern on the poster was seen on Chris Martin‘s shirt during the band’s Global Citizen Festival set in September. And what do you know, a few hours ago, Coldplay tweeted out the image in animated GIF form, confirming that they’re behind the image and release date.

All signs would indicate it’s the LP’s cover artwork and release date, but it’s also possible that it’s promoting a single release from the album.

Either way, this could be bittersweet news for Coldplay fans, as Martin previously indicated that this album marks some sort of final chapter for the band. If that’s the case, fans can at least cuddle up with the exhaustive Coldplay Timeline archive and revisit all kinds of scraps from the band’s history.
