Coldplay’s Chris Martin has addressed whether the band are heading towards a split in a new interview - though it’s left us with more questions than answers.
The band released A Head Full Of Dreams at the end of last year. At the time, Chris Martin said, “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.”
This led many to speculate as to whether the band were gearing up for a permanent split. In a new interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1, Chris Martin has addressed his previous comments.
“I don’t think we’d split up as a band,” he told Lowe. That’s the good news. "So hopefully we’ll try to work out something to do at some point. But also part of me right now just feels like, yeah seven albums, that’s great and they form a kind of circle and they all make sense to me now and I feel really proud of them.” Oh.
He added, “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.” So, are you splitting up or not Chris?
