Coldplay is just seven months removed from the release of its sixth studio album, Ghost Stories, but already the band is in the studio working on No. 7. Not only that, but Chris Martin already has a title for the LP, which he revealed during an interview with BBC Radio 1 on Thursday.
The new album will be called A Head Full of Dreams and Martin considers it the band’s final chapter. He explained to Zane Lowe, “We are right in the middle of [recording] … It’s our seventh thing and the way we look at it it’s like the last Harry Potter book. That’s not to say there won’t be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something. It was great to go from Ghost Stories right back into the studio. Now, we’re making things that sound different. It’s a very fun time to be in our band.”
“I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing, otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it,” he continued.
Martin added that the band does plan to tour behind A Head Full of Dreams, something they did not do for Ghost Stories.
Listen to Martin’s full interview below. The part about the new album begins at the 3:15 mark.

Magic has topped the Zane Lowe’s hottest songs of the year charts and Chris Martin comments on it. Furthermore, he reveals the title of the upcoming album “A head full of dreams”.
M83’s Anthony Gonzalez has released another video behind his recently reissued 2005 album, Before The Dawn Heals Us. Following treatments for album cuts “Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun” and “In The Cold I’m Standing” comes a strange but pretty video for “Moonchild”.
In the clip, there’s a series of utterly stunning shots of a forest illuminated by a mysterious triangle. Though it’s hard to figure out what the video means, with its scary hooded figures and lack of forward movement, it’s undoubtedly one of the year’s most beautiful visuals. Watch it at Facebook.
Along with 2005’s Before the Dawn Heals Us , Gonzales has reissued 2001’s M83 and 2004’s Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts in CD, vinyl, and digital formats, out now via Mute Records. The releases are also accompanied by two compilations of remixes, rarities, and B-sides: Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts Remixes and B-Sides and Before The Dawn Heals Us Remixes and B-Sides

Details: Alternative independent record label HRX Records is currently considering new artists for representation.
HRX Records continues on in the same tradition that paved the way for the founding artists of rock and roll. Think of them as the Motown Records of Alternative Music. When Rock and Roll was first created nearly all artists were on small independent labels.
HRX Records strives to take artists back to the days when music was created first and then marketed and not the other way around, putting the focus on songs and capturing real performances.
