Coldplay’s “green” album: ‘Moon Music’ will be the first “ecoCD”

Coldplay have been releasing teasers of new music for a while, and today it becomes a little more concrete. ‘Moon Music’ will be the new album they release on October 4. It will succeed ‘Music of the Spheres’.

To hear some of that new music, on the other hand, you won’t have to wait that long. This same Friday, June 21, the first single from the album will arrive, under the name ‘Feelslikeimfallinginlove’. It seems that they have collaborated with Max Martin again.

The group will continue with its commitment to ecology and to those concerts that try to be more sustainable in different ways, the physical editions of ‘Moon Music’ are added. As NME reports, both vinyl and CDs will be made from recycled material.

Each vinyl copy of the album will contain nine recycled PET plastic bottles that have been recovered from post-consumer waste, which would avoid the manufacture of more than 25 tons of virgin plastic and provide an 85% CO2 reduction compared to traditional vinyl.

On the other hand, the CDs will be the first “ECOCDs” or “ecological CDs” in the world, as they will be created with recycled polycarbonate sources from post-consumer waste streams.
