Q. Dear Oracle,
I was wondering if Coldplay planned on putting out another Christmas song like they did last year with Christmas Lights(which I am listening to right now.) Thanks for reading this and I hope you respond to my question. Have a good day.


The Oracle replies:

I did say there'd be no Christmas album from Coldplay a couple of weeks ago, same goes for a Christmas song* too.
However, if you want to get in the festive mood with two new Christmas albums, I recommend Coldplay friend and collaborator Tim Wheeler's This Is Christmas, an album made with with Emmy the Great. It was released on 21st Nov.

Another is an album released on 28th Nov by two wonderful people, Smith & Burrows.

*This Friday is the one year anniversary of the Christmas Lights video shoot. How times flies. We'll be hearing it in stores the world over soon eh?
