Will Coldplay go back to their old ways with new album?

Who remembers the start of century? When Coldplay were at their prime? The early 00’s saw the British rock band storm the world with album’s including ‘Rush of Blood to the Head’ and ‘Parachutes’. But towards the end of that era, the band came up criticism for changing their sound ‘too much’. They even insisted on collaborations with Kanye West, Rihanna and Jay Z.Coldplay

Anyone would think America went too their head. Well, it certainly went to Chris Martin’s. Since marrying actress Gwyneth Paltrow back in 2003, it has been a downward spiral it would seem. The pair are now separated, and with that news, Coldplay have vowed to go back to more ‘traditional’ roots with new album ‘Ghost Stories’.

The band are set to do a low key release of the album on May 19th and are set to be trying out a new sound before embarking on a more commercial album and tour in 2015.

Coldplay have currently released a black and white silent film-style video for the single “Magic” which the band released recently. The video features Martin as a magician’s assistant. Strange, but we will judge the band on their next sound and see whether it will work or traditional ways will creep in.
