No more Coldplay albums, sorry

Chris Martin would be “surprised if there was another conventional Coldplay album”. Which is the sort of thing people sometimes say after they’ve released a new album, before later getting that urge to get back into the studio and put down another ten tracker, but Martin seems quite adamant.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Martin said: “I’d be surprised if there was another conventional Coldplay album. I just feel like we’re right where we’re supposed to be right now. I meant what I said to you a couple of years ago, I feel like this is a closing chapter of something. I stand by that I’m afraid”.

“I don’t think we’d split up as a band so hopefully we’ll try to work out something to do at some point”, he continued. “But also part of me right now just feels like, yeah, seven albums, that’s great. They form a kind of circle and they all make sense to me now. I feel really proud of them”.

Seven Coldplay albums does seem like quite a lot, doesn’t it?
