Renowned British rock band Coldplay released their seventh studio album on December 4th, just in time for the holiday season. The 11-track album A Head Full of Dreams is an uplifting dance floor majesty.

Just a year and a half after their last release, Ghost Stories, Coldplay has decided to turn things around from the melancholic tone they established, and create an upbeat and happy theme in A Head Full of Dreams. The album is unequivocally optimistic and bright, including the single “Everglow” which depicts Chris Martin’s reflective tone after his breakup with Gwyneth Paltrow. She actually provides fascinating background vocals on the track. The album features an array of samples and guests artists, from Beyoncé and Tove Lo to Barack Obama singing “Amazing Grace” on their song “Kaleidoscope”. Their official video for “Adventure Of A Lifetime” features singing and dancing apes and an interesting take on what it means to go on an adventure. Coldplay decided not to release their album via any live streaming content, sticking to the album sales approach of fellow artists Adele and Taylor Swift, so don’t frustrate yourself searching for it on the internet in the coming weeks. Although the album overall is groovy and musically grand, the lyrics reflect the same corny attitudes of a well rehearsed pep-talk from a father.

A Head Full of Dreams is speculated as Coldplay’s last album, and if it is, they’ve ended on a high and happy note. Let us know what you think of the album in the comment section below.
