The signed letter, sent to members of the band's fan club, reveals that a new double-album is set to arrive November 22.
The letter reveals, "one half is called 'sunrise,' the other 'sunset,'" while also hinting that the project could be titled Everyday Life.
Coldplay have also rebranded their social media accounts and shared a short clip of new music accompanied by the image that was previously spotted in a a São Paulo subway station last Monday (October 14). You can find that below.
Last week's report from the U.K.'s Daily Star said the band would release a new album in November that shows "the more experimental side of Coldplay," adding that a second "more mainstream pop collection" will arrive afterwards in 2020. It is unclear whether or not both of these efforts have been combined to form the double album.
Last year, Coldplay's friend and collaborator Mat Whitecross revealed that the band would return to action in 2019 to work on their eighth studio effort, telling NME, "I've heard a few things and filmed a few bits of them talking about it, but I don't think I'm allowed to share anything. It's interesting."
Coldplay's last studio album was 2015's A Head Full of Dreams. That effort was followed by a companion EP and concert film.
