Coldplay Announce Details For 10th Studio Album, ‘Moon Music’

Produced by Max Martin, the collection is due out on Oct. 4.

Coldplay announced the release date for their 10th studio album on Monday morning (June 17). Produced by Max Martin, Moon Music will arrive Oct. 4, and is led-off by LP’s first single, “feelslikeimfallinginlove,” which, as previously reported, drops this Friday (June 21).

Chris Martin and the band gave fans a taste of things to come at Budapest’s Puskás Aréna on Sunday night (June 16), where they performed the new song in full. Earlier, the group shared a snippet of the euphoric new number on their socials, along with artwork that features the face of a waning planet with a colorful corona erupting from its surface.
