Given the way Coldplay’s career has unfolded, it’s easy to see their pop gift with no real obstacles were in the way towards world domination, except lead singer Chris Martin’s constantly shifting mind wanting to be the biggest band in the world, and hiding from all the attention given.
In December 2014, Spotify named Coldplay the most-streamed band in the world for 2014, and third most-streamed artist behind only Ed Sheeran and Eminem. At that same time, Martin announced in an interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 that Coldplay are in the middle of working on their seventh studio album which will be called A Head Full of Dreams, hinting at the style of the album by saying that the band was trying to make something colourful and uplifting, yet not bombast. He also stated that it will be something to “shuffle your feet” to.
While we’re waiting, here are the best isolated vocals to keep you warm this week.
