Coldplay are releasing a special Surround Sound version of their album 'A Head Full of Dreams'.
The band - frontman Chris Martin, drummer Will Champion, guitarist Jonny Buckland and bassist Guy Berryman - are presenting the acclaimed LP in 5.1 Surround Sound, which Coldplay's producer Rik Simpson says is the ultimate format in which to listen to the record.
Rik - who co-produced the album with Stargate - said: "The album was always conceived by the band as a dreamlike, kaleidoscopic sweep of music so it was fantastic to be able to take it to its furthest conclusion with a trip into a surround-sound dreamscape."
The new version of the album will be available from September 23.
'A Head Full Of Dreams' was first released in December 2015 and as well as lavished with critical acclaim it has gone on to sell over four million copies worldwide and contains the singles 'Adventure of a Lifetime', 'Hymn For The Weekend' and 'Up&Up'.
Coldplay have also embarked on their biggest ever stadium tour in support of the LP playing mammoth shows at Wembley Stadium in London and headlining Glastonbury for a record-breaking fourth time.
For the historic festival appearance the band were joined on stage by Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb and Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis, who sang Frank Sinatra's standard 'My Way' with them on stage.
Chris and co are currently having a well-deserved break from the 'A Head Full of Dreams Tour' but it will resume on November 19 in Mumbai, India.
The Blu-ray audio release of 'A Head Full of Dreams' is available to order via Coldplay.com now.
