Is Coldplay retiring from the music? Apparently so.

During an interview with BBC Radio 1, frontman Chris Martin announced that the band’s next album, A Head Full of Dreams, will very be the group’s final chapter.

He explained, “We right in the middle of [recording] … It’s our seventh thing and the way we look at it it’s like the last Harry Potter book. That’s not to say there won’t be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something. It was great to go from Ghost Stories right back into the studio. Now, we’re making things that sound different. It’s a very fun time to be in our band.”

“I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing, otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it,” he continued.

Martin added that the British band, who broke out in 2000 after the release of “Yellow,” will hit the road after dropping their forthcoming album. Their previous project, Ghost Stories, was not supported by a tour.
