Since the last couple of days, Coldplay’s ‘A Head Full of Dreams Tour’ concert in India which will be held in November is constantly flooding the news with the British Band being one of the most talked about music concerns in the world right now. Coldplay’s seventh studio album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ is getting released in a special Surround Sound version.
The band – frontman Chris Martin, drummer Will Champion, guitarist Jonny Buckland and bassist Guy Berryman – are presenting the acclaimed LP in 5.1 Surround Sound, which Coldplay’s producer Rik Simpson says is the ultimate format in which to listen to the record.
‘A Head Full of Dreams’ was released on 4 December 2015 by ParlophoneandAtlantic Records and included Coldplay’s Collaboration with various pop stars from different genres like Beyonc,Noel Gallagher,Tove Lo,Khatia BuniatishviliandMerry Clayton. The albumhas gone on to sell over four million copies worldwide and contains the singles ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’, ‘Hymn For The Weekend’ and ‘Up&Up’.

The album received mixed reviews from critics, though its lead single “Adventure of a Lifetime” was critically acclaimed. It reached number one in the UK, and number two in the US, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Italy. Apart from that, the album comprises of the hit track Hymn for the Weekend which has a certain Indian connect as the music video for the song was shot I India and starring Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor. Other songs include Birds and Amazing Day, the latter being this amazingly crafted uplifting song which is quite under-rated keeping in mind Coldplay’s level of music in the past.
Chris Martin, in an interview earlier this year stated that ‘ A Head Full of Dreams’ might well be the band’s last album citing the fact that ‘seven’ stating the fact that ‘Seven’ is a magical number stating the much popular Harry Potter Series as an example.
Coldplay has also embarked on their biggest ever stadium tour in support of the LP playing mammoth shows at Wembley Stadium in London and headlining Glastonbury for a record-breaking fourth time.
The new version of the album is slated to magnify the level and quality of the songs in the album to the highest level and will probably be a bestseller the moment it goes out on sale as Coldplay music is nothing if its not in the best of its clarity.
“The album was always conceived by the band as a dreamlike, kaleidoscopic sweep of music so it was fantastic to be able to take it to its furthest conclusion with a trip into a surround-sound dreamscape.”
