Fans had been worried that there may be a long wait before they could stream Coldplay’s latest album.
Coldplay’s seventh studio album A Head Full of Dreams will be available to stream on Spotify from this Friday (December 11th), it has been confirmed. The album was officially released on December 4th and is currently battling Adele’s 25 for the number one spot in the US and UK album charts.
Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams will be available on Spotify.
Fans has worried that there might be a long wait for the album to reach Spotify, much like their 2014 record Ghost Stories, which was withheld from the service for four months. Their previous effort Mylo Zyloto, took three months to reach Spotify.
A post on the band’s Spotify artist page simply reads that A Head Full of Dreams “will be available from Friday 11th December. Come back then to listen.” Some had also worried that Coldplay may decide to follow artists such as Taylor Swift and Adele and withhold the album from Spotify altogether.
According to the Official Charts Company, A Head Full of Dreams is currently ahead of Adele’s 25 in the midweek UK albums chart by just 2,000 units. It is so far said to have sold just under 160,000 copies in the UK, enough to make it already certified gold.
On Monday evening the band appeared on James Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’ to perform two tracks from the album, ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ and ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’. The boys also sat down with Corden to explain the frankly unbelievable way they ended up getting Beyoncé to appear on the record.
“You get summoned to their castle, then you wait for about a week in a small room where you’re just fed very minimally,” frontman Chris Martin said. “Whoever survives gets through to the next stage where you get to play tennis with Jay, and if you beat him twice you get sent through to meet Destiny’s Child. They check you for lice and bugs and if they deem you clean enough you can meet Beyonce behind a screen.”
