A Head Full of Dreams is the seventh studio album by the British rock band Coldplay. It was released on 4 December 2015, by Parlophone in the United Kingdom, and by Atlantic Records in the United States. Coldplay recorded the album from late 2014 to mid 2015, right after the completion of their previous album Ghost Stories, with a markedly different style and sound from its predecessors. For various songs, Coldplay collaborated with Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo, Khatia Buniatishvili and Merry Clayton. The album was produced by Rik Simpson and Stargate. The album also features a sample of President Barack Obama singing "Amazing Grace" at Clementa C. Pinckney's funeral on the song "Kaleidoscope".
The album received mixed reviews from critics. Commercially, it topped the UK Albums Chart, and peaked at number two in the United States, Australia, Canada, and Italy where it was held off the top spot by Adele's 25. At the 2016 Brit Awards the album was nominated for British Album of the Year. It was the eighth-best-selling album of 2015 with 1.9 million copies sold worldwide, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

Coldplay retain the expansive sound palette of 2008’s Viva La Vida, bring in some dance-rock elements and up the energy level considerably on a futuristic concept album that finds them offering solace in an often scary and uncaring world (or, as Chris Martin elegantly states in “Up With the Birds,” this is music that provides “a spark in a sea of gray”). As usual with concept LPs from Ziggy Stardust and The Wall to American Idiot, it’s best to forget about any concrete narrative and just follow the emotional arc of the songs; ever the optimist, Chris Martin’s bleak post-Blade Runner dystopia seems to have a happy ending. Leadoff single “Every Tear is a Waterfall” – which includes a cutting Edge-style rhythm guitar assault – may just be the most glorious of many U2-ish arena anthems on the album. Likewise, while even the most mainstream Coldplay fans may see the appearance of leggy pop temptress Rihanna on “Princess of China” as an unsubtle grab at the rock-free global pop market, the constant presence of sonic guru Brian Eno helps keep alive their itchy rock links to the increasingly hermetic Radiohead. Coldplay did not approach this album casually; they know they’re now the world’s biggest rock band and made sure Mylo Xyloto cements their position at the top. To the band’s credit, it probably didn’t have to be this good to be just as successful. Mylo Xyloto is like a Christopher Nolan movie; it’s a creatively executed blockbuster that deserves its box office success.
