     Just one year after the release of the melancholic and partially break-up inspired album 'Ghost Stories', British rock band Coldplay announced today (Nov.6) that they will release their seventh album, 'A Head Full Of Dreams' on Dec.4.

     According to a release, the new album was recorded in Los Angeles, Malibu and London and was produced by Stargate and Rik Simpson. Both producers were involved in Coldplay's two most recent albums, 2011's Mylo Xyloto and 2014's 'Ghost Stories'.     And unlike 'Ghost Stories', 'A Head Full Of Dreams' will feature guest appearances by Swedish pop singer Tove Lo, British rocker Noel Gallagher, and, perhaps a surprise, pop star Beyonce.

     In an interview with Sirius XM radio this week, frontman Chris Martin said, "We just wanted to make this big, colorful, joyful thing called 'A Head Full Of Dreams'. This is an interesting bit of information due to the fact that 'Ghost Stories' was reportedly partially inspired by Martin's 'conscious-uncoupling' with his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow.

And since the release of 'Ghost Stories', there have been rumors that 'A Head Full Of Dreams' could be Coldplay's final album.

The band also released the first single from the album today called 'Adventure Of A Lifetime' that can be immediately heard and downloaded when the album is pre-ordered on itunes.

1.) 'A Head Full Of Dreams'
