Seven months after Coldplay released their heartbreaking Ghost Stories, the band is already back in the studio at work on their next LP, tentatively titled A Head Full of Dreams. However, in a radio interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, frontman and part-time U2 singer Chris Martin implied that Coldplay's next album, their seventh, might be their last.

"It's our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it's like the last Harry Potter book or something like that," Martin said (via Consequence of Sound). "Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something." Martin then added, "I have to think of it as the final thing we're doing. Otherwise we wouldn't put everything into it."

It's unclear whether Martin was insinuating that he's merely approaching Coldplay's new album as their "final thing" in order to ensure that the band pours everything they have into their upcoming LP, or if A Head Full of Dreams really is the last Coldplay album before the band breaks up or goes on indefinite hiatus.

Christmas night,
Another fight,
Tears we cried,
A flood
Got all kinds of poison in, of poison in my blood

I took my feet
To Oxford Street,
Trying to right a wrong
"Just walk away," those windows say, but I can't believe she's gone.

When you're still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Up above candles on air flicker
Oh they flicker and they flow
And I am up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope

And like some drunken Elvis singing
I go singing out of tune
Singing how I've always loved you, darling, and I always will

Oh when you're still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all
Still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Those Christmas lights light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet

The album art for Ghost Stories was etched by British based, Czech etching artist Mila Fürstová. The medieval art-driven artwork, measuring 100 by 100cm, features a pair of angel wings imposed onto a painting of an ocean under a sky at night. The angel wings themselves feature cryptic imagery of medieval-style drawings of fairly contemporary objects and concepts. The images include a couple in love, a man facing a mirror, a flight of white doves, a circular maze, a girl by candlelight, a window looking out onto an incoming tornado and a garden plant with a ladder, amongst other imagery depicted in the artwork. A larger, digital version of the artwork is available on Coldplay's official website, with the ability to zoom into the artwork with a Screen magnifier.

Fürstová had etched the artworks for all of the releases in the Ghost Stories album cycle, including the artwork for singles "Magic" and "Midnight", which all use the same motif of a scenario taking place in a larger body. Fürstová, whose work has been described as "dazzling images are both contemporary and personal, searching in the surreality of dreams, tales and fables that can map the...
