Coldplay Reveals "Next Album Has A Story line"...
As we get closer to the New Year, we all know much much music is on its way. One of the most highly anticipated albums include Coldplay's 4th coming album, which is the follow up to their last album "Viva La Vida". In an interview with BBC we got just a little bit closer to knowing the actual concept behind the band's next album:
"It's from the point of view of two people who are a bit lost," Chris Martin told the BBC. "Two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together."
He added: "It's a concept album but it's supposed to be very personal within a big framework. Does that make sense?"
Martin also admitted his bandmates - guitarist Johnny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion - can be tough in their views on his songwriting, although he insists that their methods produce results.
He explained: "Jonny [Buckland] is delightful, he's the easiest to convince. It's when you have to take a verse to Guy [Berryman] or Will [Champion] that things become very tearful. You can forget there are other people in the world.
"I'm so lucky that we have that group, in as much as there are a lot of people who don't like us in the world, but there would be a lot more without this filtering system. Think of the rubbish that doesn't get out, if you don't like the stuff that does."
Coldplay's as-yet-untitled LP is slated for release next year.
