Coldplay will stop making records after their 12th album.
The group is releasing their ninth studio album, ‘Music of the Spheres’, this week and frontman Chris Martin has admitted the ‘Yellow’ hitmakers will only make three more records before leaving the recording studio for good.
He said: “I think in a couple of albums we’ll be done making albums.
“It’s not a joke, it’s true, I think after 12 p.m. it will be the end of our catalog.”
However, frontman Chris wouldn’t want Coldplay to retire completely, as the 44-year-old singer is keen for the band – also made up of Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion – to play gigs into their 70s.
He said: “But I think we will always want to play live together.
“So I think similar to the Stones, it would be so cool if we could still tour in the late 70s.
“It will be wonderful, if anyone wants to come.”
Chris also admitted it was a “real joy” to team up with K-pop sensation BTS recently on the track “My Universe.”
Speaking to Andy Bush of Absolute Radio, he added: “It was a real joy to do this song with them from start to finish.
“It was such a weird idea, and it was so wrong on paper in a way, but it allowed us to bring out our inner boyband and bring out their inner old man group and collaborate in a band middle-aged.”
The group rose to fame after their debut album “Parachutes”, released in July 2000.
