Coldplay puts off touring new album to plan carbon neutral tour with a "positive impact"

By

Coldplay fans hoping to catch the band live will just have to hope they're still fans a few years from now.

Even though Coldplay is releasing a new album this Friday, Nov. 22 — titled Everyday Life — the band won't be taking the new tunes on tour just yet. Instead, Coldplay will be taking a year or two to plan a carbon-neutral tour that has a positive impact on the planet. Lead singer Chris Martin sat down with BBC News to explain the reasoning behind the decision this week.

"We're taking time over the next year or two, to work out how can not only our tour be sustainable, but how can it be actively beneficial?" he said in the video interview with BBC News. "How can we harness the resources that our tour creates and make it have a positive impact? ... We would be disappointed if it's not carbon neutral."
