Coldplay are working on their seventh album 'A Head Full of Dreams' which Chris Martin says will be the band's "final" record
Coldplay are working on their "final" album.
The band - made up of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion - have revealed they are currently recording their seventh studio album, 'A Head Full of Dreams', and likened the upcoming record to the final 'Harry Potter' movie in the film franchise.
Chris, 37, said: "We haven't told anyone this, but we're making an album called 'A Head Full of Dreams'. We're right in the middle of it.
"It's our seventh thing and we look at it as the last 'Harry Potter' book or something like that.
"Not to say that 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 in the studio."
The 'Sky Full of Stars' singer elaborated on his comments by saying he sees the album as the last thing the band - whose sixth studio album 'Ghost Stories' was released in May - will do apart from a tour to celebrate the record.
He added: "Now we're making things that sound different and it's a very fun time to be in our band. I have to think of it as the final thing that we're doing, otherwise we wouldn't put everything into it. Then we'll go on tour."
The singer made the announcement on BBC Radio 1 after their single 'Magic' was announced as the top track on presenter Zane Lowe's 100 Hottest Records of the Year, and afterwards Chris admitted he didn't get "permission" from the other band members to reveal the huge news.
Speaking to the host, he added: "Because it's you, I'll tell you. I feel a bit nervous to have said it because I didn't get permission!"
