Coldplay has an early Christmas treat for music fans.
The British quartet announced Friday that they are releasing their seventh studio album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” on Dec. 4.
Beyoncé is among the guest stars featured on the new album, as well as Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton.
“It’s the sound of us being free and happy and very grateful to be in our group,” frontman Chris Martin told BBC Radio 1 on Friday.
After releasing 2014’s “Ghost Stories,” the band opted against touring in order to head back into the studio to record “Dreams,” which Martin described as a “more colorful, more joyful sort of thing.”
Despite the band’s shiny, happy mindset, “A Head Full of Dreams” is rumored to be Coldplay’s final record.
The speculation was sparked by Martin’s remarks to BBC Radio 1 last year about their planned follow-up to “Ghost Stories.”
“It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that,” he said.
“Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something.
“I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”
Fans can get a preview of “A Head Full of Dream’s” “joyful” sound from the album’s lead single, “Adventure of a Lifetime,” which was released Friday.
