A new album on the horizon: On Nov. 6, Coldplay shared the good word with fans that a seventh album was slated for global release this Friday. The album, which is titled A Head Full Of Dreams, comes via Parlophone Records and is already available for pre-order via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

Norwegian producing and songwriting duo Stargate and longtime Coldplay collaborator Rik Simpson produced the record, which was recorded in Malibu, Los Angeles and London, according to the band. The record features an all-star crew of contributors, not least among them Beyoncé. Musical acts Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton also make appearances on some some of the 11 tracks that grace Coldplay's latest — plus a 12th "hidden track" titled "X Marks the Spot," the album's closer.
