Coldplay “go green” on their highly anticipated tenth album, Moon Music, slated for release on 4 October.

The album’s physical release will set new sustainability standards, with the new EcoRecord LP
made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

Reuniting with Max Martin, the producer behind 2021’s Music Of The Spheres, the LP’s first single, Feelslikeimfallinginlove, is released on Friday 21 June.

In keeping with the sustainability measures that have been implemented on their current tour – which has so far produced 59% less CO2e emissions than their last stadium tour – the band have ensured the vinyl release of Moon Music is as sustainable as possible.

This will be the world’s first album released as a 140g EcoRecord LP, with each copy made from nine recycled PET-plastic bottles recovered from post-consumer waste. This will prevent the manufacture of more than 25 metric tonnes of virgin plastic, and provide an 85% reduction in manufacturing process CO2 emissions/kg compared to traditional 140g vinyl.

The CD editions of Moon Music will be the world’s first to be released on EcoCD, created from 90% recycled polycarbonate, sourced from post-consumer waste streams.

Additionally, the band have collaborated with long-time partners The Ocean Cleanup to create an additional format: the Notebook Edition. This edition comprises 70% river plastic, intercepted by The Ocean Cleanup from the Rio Las Vacas in Guatemala.

In an effort to reduce waste, the first edition run of Moon Music will be strictly limited and there will be four formats:

Standard EcoCD
Standard EcoRecord LP
Notebook Edition EcoCD
Notebook Edition EcoRecord LP + EcoCD

All First Edition EcoRecord LP products will be individually numbered.

The Notebook Edition (EcoCD and EcoRecord LP) comes as a casebound hardback book. The book is a faithful replica of Chris Martin’s original studio notebook. It will feature 28 pages of unseen notes, lyrics and illustrations from the album’s writing and recording process.

Moon Music is available to pre-order now, with a limited number of hand-signed editions available from the official Coldplay Store. For more information click here
