Chris Martin has announced that Coldplay will make their final album in 2025.
Coldplay Has Plans for 12 Albums, Last One Coming Out in 2025
During an interview with BBC Radio 2‘s Jo Whiley, the musician explained that the band will stop releasing new music after the album but continue to tour with their existing catalog. “Well I know I can tell you: our last proper record will come out in 2025. After that, I think we will only tour,” Chris said. “Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalog, as it were, finishes then.”
The news arrives just a couple of months after Chris revealed to NME that Coldplay has plans to make a total of 12 albums. The group recently released their ninth studio album Music of the Spheres in October, which charted at number 1.
“We’re going to make 12 albums,” Chris confessed. “Because it’s a lot to pour everything into making them. I love it and it’s amazing, but it’s very intense too. I feel like because I know that challenge is finite, making this music doesn’t feel difficult. It feels like, ‘This is what we’re supposed to be doing.’ I don’t think that’s what we’ll do. I know that’s what we’ll do in terms of studio albums.”
The Band Heads Over to an Environment-Friendly World Tour
In October, Coldplay announced a world tour with a range of initiatives designed to mitigate its environmental impact. The band has promised to cut CO2 emissions by 50% compared with their 2016-17 world tour; and almost entirely use renewable energy to power the stage show.
The tour is part of a 12-point plan to cut their carbon footprint, two years after the band pledged not to tour until they could do so in a more sustainable way. Chris said fans will be on “kinetic flooring.” “When they move, they power the concert,” he told BBC entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson. “And we have bicycles too that do the same thing.” It will also feature a stage made of renewable materials, solar panels, while the battery and main power will be drawn from renewable sources.
