Coldplay Announce New Album ‘Moon Music’

Ahead of their epic Glastonbury slot...

Coldplay will release new album ‘Moon Music’ on October 4th.

The record-breaking UK band are currently on tour on the continent, playing colossal stadiums in Central Europe. Fans at last night’s show in Budapest’s Puskás Aréna received a very special gift – a teaser of Coldplay’s incoming album.

New album ‘Moon Music’ was produced alongside Max Martin, and it’s their first since 2021 effort ‘Music Of The Spheres’. Out on October 4th, it is trailed by new single ‘feelslikeimfallinginlove‘ – a snippet of which was performed in Budapest overnight – and it will be released globally on June 21st.

‘Moon Music’ is available to pre-order now, and in keeping with the band’s eco-friendly beliefs the physical copies will have climate awareness wired into their production.

According to Coldplay this will be the world’s first album released as a 140g EcoRecord LP, with each copy made from nine recycled PET-plastic bottles recovered from post-consumer waste. Leading the way, this will prevent the manufacture of more than 25 metric tonnes of virgin plastic, and provide an 85% reduction in manufacturing process CO2 emissions/kg compared to traditional 140g vinyl. 

Building on this, the band have collaborated with long-time partners The Ocean Cleanup to create an additional format: the Notebook Edition EcoRecord LP. The rPET for this edition comprises 70% river plastic, intercepted by The Ocean Cleanup from the Rio Las Vacas, Guatemala, and prevented from reaching the Gulf of Honduras and the Atlantic Ocean. 

Many fans will seek out the CD edition, and ‘Moon Music’ will be the world’s first to be released on EcoCD, created from 90% recycled polycarbonate, sourced from post-consumer waste streams. This will provide at least a 78% CO2/kg emission reduction, and avoid the manufacture of more than five metric tonnes of virgin plastic.

So, order your copy HERE.
