Coldplay announce new album in hand typed letter to fans

By | Published on Tuesday 22 October 2019

Coldplay have announced their new album via the traditional hand typed letter posted to fans. Because, well, why not? Double album ‘Everyday Life’ is set for release next month.

“Dear friends”, reads the note, which quickly found its way onto social media. “My typing isn’t very good, I’m sorry. I and we hope wherever you are, you’re OK”.

“For the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called ‘Everyday Life'”, it goes on. “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 Nov. It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation”.

The band’s last album, ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’, was released in 2015, which is not quite 100 years ago. It’s been a while though.

The band did release a teaser video earlier this week showing a photo of themselves on 22 Nov 1919, so there’s your 100 years. That may also be a reference to a solar eclipse that took place on that date, seen across Africa, Europe and the Americas, in-keeping with the solar theme of the record. Equally, it could just be a coincidence.

Anyway, there’s a new Coldplay album coming out. And if you don’t believe me, ask your postman.
