The band - made up of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion - have admitted that they are currently recording their seventh studio album, 'A Head Full of Dreams', and said their upcoming record is like the final 'Harry Potter' movie in the film franchise.

Chris, 37, said: "We haven't told anyone this, but we're making an album called 'A Head Full of Dreams'. We're right in the middle of it.

"It's our seventh thing and we look at it as the last 'Harry Potter' book or something like that.

"Not to say that 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 in the studio."

He added: "Now we're making things that sound different and it's a very fun time to be in our band. I have to think of it as the final thing that we're doing, otherwise we wouldn't put everything into it. Then we'll go on tour."

Zane Lowe revealed that the band's song Magic was the top track on his 100 Hottest Records of the Year and Chris made the annoucement shorty after, without the permisson of the other band members. 

Speaking to the host, he added: "Because it's you, I'll tell you. I feel a bit nervous to have said it because I didn't get permission!"
