Coldplay's new album was made with the producers behind pop hits including Rihanna's Rude Boy, Katy Perry's Firework and Beyonce's Irreplaceable.
A Head Full Of Dreams has been produced by Norwegian duo Stargate, consisting of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, alongside the band's long-time collaborator Rik Simpson.
The album features more guests than any other Coldplay record, with Beyonce, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton appearing on the record.
Adventure Of A Lifetime, the first single, shows a departure from their 2014 album Ghost Stories - with more of a pop and dance sound.
The release date has now been announced for Friday December 4.
The rock band's seventh studio album will be released via Parlophone Records and was produced in Malibu, Los Angeles and London. The 11-track album also features a hidden 12th song, X Marks The Spot.
After choosing not to tour with Ghost Stories, the band are planning a world tour for A Head Full Of Dreams.
