Coldplay's been teasing new music this month, and on Monday (June 17) they officially announced their 10th album Moon Music. In an effort to keep their business sustainable, the album will be available on vinyl made with 100% recycled plastic bottles. Each record will be composed of nine recycled PET-plastic bottles that have been recovered from post-consumer waste. According to the band, this will prevent the manufacture of more than 25 metric tonnes of virgin plastic and provide an 85% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to traditional 140g vinyl. They also plan to release the album on the world's first "EcoCD," which is created from 90% recycled polycarbonate sourced from post-consumer waste streams.

Fans will be able to hear the album's lead single "feelslikeimfallinginlove" on June 21. Coldplay first teased the song on June 7.

Moon Music is slated for an October 4 release. This will be the band's first new music since 2021's Music of the Spheres.

In 2021, Chris Martin divulged that he planned to stop putting out music with Coldplay in 2025. “Well I know I can tell you: our last proper record will come out in 2025 and after that I think we will only tour,” he said at the time. “Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then.”

Interestingly, he told NME that same year that they plan to release 12 albums. “We’re going to make 12 albums. Because it’s a lot to pour everything into making them. I love it and it’s amazing, but it’s very intense too,” he said. “I feel like because I know that challenge is finite, making this music doesn’t feel difficult, it feels like, ‘This is what we’re supposed to be doing.’”

“I don’t think that’s what we’ll do. I know that’s what we’ll do in terms of studio albums,” he added.

If that's still the case, we can expect two more albums after Moon Music.
