Coldplay uses Daily Post classifieds to announce new album


Coldplay has taken out a classified ad in today’s North Wales Daily Post, to exclusively announce its new album.

The advert appears on page 31 of the paper, alongside somewhat more traditional ads of a fridge freezer and bale of hay.

The choice of the North Wales Daily Post isn’t entirely random, with lead guitarist, Jonny Buckland, growing up near Mold. He also once had a holiday job at paper.

“I wasn’t very good at it,” he said on Twitter.

Daily Post Editor, Andrew Campbell said:

“It’s great to see even global rock stars Coldplay recognise the unbeatable value of advertising in the Daily Post.”

The new album is a follow up to their 2015 hit, A Head Full of Dreams. Everyday Life will be a double album and is set for release next month.
