Last week, we wondered if a symbol spotted around London and on Chris Martin’s T-shirt was hinting at a new 2015 Coldplay album. We don’t know all the details yet, but on Wednesday (Nov. 4), Coldplay revealed another piece of the puzzle, posting a 34-second video to its official Facebook page, containing a symmetric image of clouds, hot air balloons, and toucans, along with a clip of what appears to be new music:

The post contains the hashtags #?AOAL and #?AHFOD. The latter likely refers to A Head Full of Dreams, which Martin revealed to be the title of Coldplay’s final album, back in December 2014. As for #AOAL, we’ll have to wait and see.
The same octagonal set of interlocking circles (an interpretation of the two-thousand-year-old Flower of Life symbol) that appears in the new video has been spotted around London, along with the date Dec. 4.

Is A Head Full of Dreams dropping then? Or just a single? A source told Billboard the new album will be out by the end of 2015, so our answer may reveal itself soon.
