Coldplay Announces New Album, "Moon Music"

This Friday, June 21, Coldplay will release its first new song since 2022. Announcing the Oct. 4 release of their tenth studio album, Moon Music, the band live debuted its first single, “feelslikeimfallinginlove,” at the 137th stop of their “Music of the Spheres” World Tour in Budapest, Hungary.

Embarking on the “Music of the Spheres” World Tour back in 2022, Coldplay was set on making all the changes necessary to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible. Having already reduced emissions by 59% compared to their last world tour, the band plans on continuing this commitment to environmentalism with Moon Music. Physical copies of the album will be exclusively manufactured using recycled materials, in an effort to reduce the production of excess virgin plastic and carbon emissions.

Moon Music CDs will be the first of their kind, EcoCDs made from 90% recycled post-consumer polycarbonate. Though Liam Gallagher & John Squire released their recent collaboration as the first recyclable PET EcoRecord, Moon Music will be the manufactured out of 100% recycled PET. According to the band’s website, this will be “the world's first album released as a 140g EcoRecord rPET LP,” and each standard issue of the EcoRecord will use 9 recycled PET-bottles.

According to Forbes, the traditional PVC manufacturing process for a single 140g vinyl record boasts a carbon footprint equal to 0.5kg of CO2. Using rPET, each EcoRecord will have a carbon footprint equivalent to about 0.075kg, an 85% reduction. Collaborating with The Ocean Cleanup, 70% of the rPET used for Notebook Edition copies will be recovered from accumulated plastic in the Rio Las Vacas, Guatemala. Notebook Edition variants of EcoCDs and EcoRecords will come with a hardcover replica of Chris Martin’s notebook, featuring exclusive snippets from the album’s writing and recording process.

All variations of Moon Music, including signed copies, are available for preorder on Coldplay’s website. Some lucky fans had the chance to hear the first taste of Moon Music, with both the live debut of “All My Love” and filming of the “feelslikeimfallinginlove” music video occurring in Athens earlier this month.

Moon Music will be the band's first album in three years. Based on teasers and leaked concert videos, its debut single, “feelslikeimfallinginlove,” sounds like a classic cathartic Coldplay anthem. Fans can’t get enough. Not even one single in, it feels like Coldplay’s loyal fanbase is already falling in love with Moon Music.
