Coldplay Still In Hibernation Mode After Four Year Break

Coldplay are in “hibernation mode” after taking a long break from music.

The ‘Paradise’ hitmakers returned on Friday (22.11.19) with their new album ‘Everyday Life’ – their first LP since 2015’s ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ – and frontman Chris Martin admitted having almost four years out of the spotlight was healthy for the band.

He told the Daily Star newspaper’s Wired column: “A Coldplay hibernation makes you forget that you were ever in a famous band and I think it’s a good way to see if there are any new songs around.

“The idea of playing a stadium right now feels like a different person. I can’t imagine doing that, which I think means I’m still in a bit of hibernation mode.”

Despite their huge popularity, the group – completed by Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion – has no plans to perform stadium shows any time soon.

Chris, 42, said: “It’s a very different mindset doing a stadium tour from singing about the things we’re singing about at the moment. It’s a switch you have to turn on.”

The singer’s comments come after he suggested they won’t be hitting the road to support the new double record – with two halves, called ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’ – until their live runs are environmentally friendly.

He explained: “Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that [last world tour] environmentally. We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral.

“We’ve done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it’s no so much taking as giving?”
