BAND ALSO TO HEADLINE PEPSI SUPER BOWL 50 HALFTIME SHOW
Coldplay’s critically-acclaimed new album, A Head Full Of Dreams, is released today by Parlophone/Atlantic Records.
The album – which reached Number One on iTunes in more than 50 countries before it was even released – was produced by Norwegian duo Stargate together with the band’s long-time collaborator Rik Simpson. It features more guests than any previous Coldplay album, with Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton among those appearing.
Last night, the band performed songs from the album at a special live show at St John’s Hackney Church, London for BBC Radio 1. The entire concert is available on-demand worldwide at bbc.co.uk/radio1 now.
It was also announced last night that Coldplay will headline the prestigious Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show on February 7, 2016 in Santa Clara, California.
This afternoon at 3.30pm GMT, the band will celebrate A Head Full Of Dreams’ release with a live stream direct from their studio/HQ in London, at facebook.com/coldplay. The stream will also be available on-demand afterwards.
Coldplay will tour extensively in 2016 in support of A Head Full Of Dreams, beginning with a run of stadium shows in Latin America and Europe (including three nights at London’s Wembley Stadium). News of North American dates will follow soon.
The groundbreaking animated video for A Head Full Of Dreams’ first single, Adventure Of A Lifetime, is now available on YouTube, following its exclusive premiere on Facebook, where it was viewed more than 6 million times in 48 hours.
