Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Coldplay’s new album is imminent, after Chris Martin and co trademarked the phrase 'Music Of The Spheres' and officially applied to use the name on music, merchandise, and more in the US.
A source said: "Chris and Co have been dropping hints for a while but now it’s finally getting off the ground. They’ve been busy working on new music during lockdown and it’ll all culminate in the record, which has the working title 'Music Of The Spheres'. Chris and the group have now officially trademarked the name ready for an album. It also includes merchandise and everything they’d need for a tour. It’s a really exciting time for everyone. There’s no doubt this project will also go straight to the top spot."
'Music Of The Spheres' was also printed in a book accompanying the vinyl version of Coldplay's 2019 album 'Everyday Life', along with “Coldplay, coming soon” in small print.
