Coldplay release the audio for Adventure of a Lifetime, from their album, A Head Full of Dreams. The band says they have collaborated with Tove Lo, Noel Gallagher and Beyonce on the album, which will contain 12 songs, including a hidden track, X Marks The Spot. Parlophone:
Revitalized, they’ve made an album that’s bursting with energy, colour and big, life-affirming moments such as the deliciously ebullient first single Adventure of a Lifetime and the rocket-powered Hymn for the Weekend. Coldplay has never enjoyed making a record more than this one. Nor have they been happier with the results.

Rihanna and Coldplay create music video for song Princess Of China. The video for the rock song, depicts Rihanna and Chris Martin in a Asian-style battle is directed by Adria Petty, who says:
It’s a music video, you’re not really held to any narrative structure. Once we had the movie trailer format, we wanted to celebrate something visual and Asian-inspired across the board, but nothing too prescriptive. Thus, they planned a sequence of acrobatic martial arts scenes and dubbed Rihanna’s violent damsel character the “Geisha Assassin” and Chris Martin’s hero “The Returning Ronin.”

A lovely, joyous song. Guy (Berryman, bass) and I have managed to get more groove into this record than we’ve ever managed before. A bit more swagger.

The band releases Lost+, featuring Jay-Z, from their album, Viva La Vida. Martin:
The line in this song ‘Just because I’m losing, doesn’t mean I’m lost‘ is what the whole record came out of, because we were feeling down at the end of the last tour. That line arrived and it was, ‘OK, that’s how we kinda feel. We know we can improve’.
The band releases Lovers In Japan, from Viva La Vida. Martin:
No one associates romance with Japan. Everyone thinks Japan is just about Hitachi and neon signs, but every time we’re there, we see these amazing sunrises. It’s very sexy.
The band releases Talk, from X & Y. Martin:
What happened with Talk is that it was all going great, and then someone said ‘That should be the first single,’ and we all just freaked out and scrapped it all. I hate choosing singles, it’s so hard. (But) when we heard it mixed properly, it sounded mega.
The band releases Fix You, from their album, X & Y. Martin:
Because it’s so unlikely that that song would have come out of that period. The rest of that album (X&Y) I like, but I don’t think it’s great. Whereas that song… it’s the best one because it almost single-handedly got us through a really difficult two years. You could say it’s too soft or whatever, but… it does exactly what it says on the tin. Even when I’m singing it, by the time I get to the end, I’m thinking, ‘I like this’.
