You need to check up on your Coldplay-loving friends, because they might not be okay. Chris Martin, the band’s frontman, has just revealed that the award-winning crooners will stop making music as a band in 2025.
The devastating, or joyful news – depending on who’s asking – was announced on BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday, December 22, during a special show set to broadcast on Friday, reports BBC.
“Our last proper record will come out in 2025, and after that, I think we will only tour,” he said.
“And maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then.”
The revelation comes just two months after Coldplay released their successful ninth studio album, Music of the Spheres, which went straight to number one earlier this year.
Presenter Jo Whiley, who interviewed Martin for the special, stated that while the singer can be quite honest in interviews, she’s “never quite sure if he’s joking or being deadly serious.”
Eager listeners may be keeping their fingers crossed that that may be the case, and many have pointed out that this is consistent with what Martin has stated in previous interviews. According to The Guardian, the frontman had told the NME in October that the band intended to make three more albums – to bring the total to 12.
However, the announcement is the first time he has provided a date as to when the band will stop making music.
While fans have not taken kindly to the news, as Twitter’s filled with tons of sad tweets, the band did announce that they would be doing a world tour with an array of incredible initiatives that will help mitigate their environmental impact. A few eco-friendly features on the menu is a “kinetic floor” that will harness the energy created by fans, a stage made with renewable materials, and solar panels.
