Coldplay Announce New Album With Mysterious Letter To Fans
According to the letter, the new release will be a double album called Everyday Life and will drop on 22 November.
Images of the strange and unexpected message began to circulate on social media. One recipient of the letter didn't initially believe there was any truth behind it, tweeting: "Fake alert! Got this in the post this morning with autographs in gold in the corners. Can't see why anybody would send it. Anybody got anything similar?"
Others didn't take as much convincing, with one writing: "@coldplay sent me this in the post today and it is signed. New album out 22nd November. Boss!!"
LOVE this type of real, old-fashioned post! Thanks @coldplay, new album due out 22 November! :tada::clap::two_hearts: #EverydayLife #Music pic.twitter.com/JDZeJQQzNM

The letter read: "I and we hope wherever you are you're okay.
"For the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life. In the classifieds you might write 'double album for sale, one very careful owner'.
"One half is called 'Sunrise', the other 'Sunset'. It comes out 22 November. It is sort of how we feel about things.
"We send much love to you from hibernation."
The letter was then signed off by Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.
Coldplay later confirmed the rumours were, indeed, true, sharing their own photo of the letter on Twitter.
The band's last album, A Head Full of Dreams, came out in 2015 and featured collaborations with the likes of Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo, Khatia Buniatishvili and Merry Clayton.
However, last week the long-running indie group had teased their return was imminent with a series of posters spotted in cities across the globe.
The vintage-style images saw the group alongside German philosopher, poet, and composer Friedrich Nietzsche, with the date 'November 22, 1919'.
They have also updated their social media profile pictures and banners to reflect the branding of the forthcoming album, with a sun and a moon.
