Coldplay’s upcoming new album teased with mysterious poster in São Paulo


Looks like something’s coming very soon…

Coldplay‘s rumoured “experimental” album for 2019 appears to have been teased with a mysterious poster in São Paulo – check out the photo below.

Chris Martin and co. are said to be making their return with an “arty” record before the year’s out, ahead of dropping a more “mainstream” effort which is slated for a 2020 release.

“The first album is the more experimental side of Coldplay, they probably won’t tour until 2020 when the next one arrives,” a source recently told The Daily Star.

Amid these whispers, fansite Coldplaying reported today (October 15) that promotional artwork for the first LP had appeared in São Paulo. The outlet claims that the poster was put up at Paulista metro station, only to be removed from public view just hours later.

The black and white vintage-inspired shot, which sees the band sat with German philosopher, poet, and composer Friedrich Nietzsche, displays the date November 22, 1919.

Fans are now speculating that this points towards the album release date or the arrival of the project’s lead single. It’s also said that the promo poster had been put up early by mistake, and was meant to go on display this Thursday (October 17) – meaning our first taste of material could arrive by the end of this week.

Coldplay, who haven’t released an album since 2015’s acclaimed ‘A Head Full Of Dreams‘, were believed to be releasing a new record in 2019 after friend and collaborator Mat Whitecross previously told NME that they were due to regroup and take a “surprising turn with their output.

“I’ve heard a few things and filmed a few bits of them talking about it, but I don’t think I’m allowed to share anything. It’s interesting,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Coldplay are currently among the rumoured acts for the Glastonbury 2020.

Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails Nominated for Rock Hall of Fame 2020


The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced its long list of nominees for the class of 2020. First-time nominees include the Notorious B.I.G. (in his first year of eligibility), Whitney Houston, Soundgarden, T. Rex, Motörhead, Dave Matthews Band, Thin Lizzy, the Doobie Brothers, and Pat Benatar. Nine Inch Nails, MC5, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, and Judas Priest have been nominated again.

Find the full list of nominees below. Once again, fans can vote for their favorites via the Rock Hall website, and the inductees will be announced in January.

Artists who became Rock Hall eligible for the first time this year but weren’t nominated include Oasis, Weezer, Aaliyah, Daft Punk, Elliott Smith, Sleater-Kinney, and Wilco. An artist becomes eligible 25 years after their first commercial record was released.

Previous nominees who didn’t make the cut this year include Rage Against the Machine, Kate Bush, the Replacements, Bad Brains, the Smiths, Eric B. & Rakim, Jane’s Addiction, John Prine, Eurythmics, LL Cool J, and Gram Parsons.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame class of 2019 was Radiohead, the Cure, Janet Jackson, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard, and the Zombies. Most of Radiohead declined to show up for the ceremony, Jackson urged the Rock Hall to “induct more women,” and Stevie Nicks shared the stage with Harry Styles.

Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor has, in the past, expressed his lack of interest in the Rock Hall. When he was asked last year about being snubbed, he replied, “I don’t give a fuck.” Months later, he gave a speech at the Rock Hall ceremony inducting the Cure. “I remember distinctly saying to myself, among other things, how can I even take this awards ceremony seriously if they’ll open their doors to X, Y and Z and not acknowledge the Cure,” Reznor said. “Let’s just say I’ve never been as happy to eat my words as I was tonight.”

Last month, Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner announced that he would leave his post as the chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation on January 1, 2020. He was one of the Rock Hall’s co-founders in 1986.
