Coldplay is finally back — sort of. The band dropped 11 clips from its forthcoming album A Head Full of Dreams on Instagram Tuesday in anticipation of the its Dec. 4 release. The album is the British rock band's seventh studio album and likely Coldplay's last as a group.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, published Monday, Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin explained why A Head Full of Dreams is a personal venture for the band, and how the concepts for the album came about. "About three or four years ago, when we decided to go down this road of making a really small, intimate album like Ghost Stories, the idea for A Head Full of Dreams came at the same time," Martin told Entertainment Weekly. "We thought, 'After making this restrained, intimate album, we won't tour. Maybe we'll feel like playing with a bit more jubilation.' It was really fun to make, which is not what we've felt before."

Snippets from A Head Full of Dreams were posted Tuesday night, with each 15-second clip receiving tens of thousands of likes by Wednesday morning. The songs were uploaded in the album's order in hour intervals, along with colorful, moving kaleidoscope images.
