Coldplay Begin Work On Sixth Album

Coldplay have begun work on their next album, dismissing reports that they would take a minimum of three years away from the music scene. Frontman Chris Martin had previously suggested the band would be going on a break, telling an audience in Australia recently that the group would be away for three years. However, in a new interview with the Daily Star, Martin clarified the situation and explained that he meant there would be no world tour for a number of years but that he is already hard at work on writing songs for the next Coldplay album. Explaining that he has been energised by the success of "Mylo Xyloto", Martin told the paper: "I've been writing songs and I'm so fired up about the band's future." Martin goes on to add: "I'm fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop. This three-year break idea only came about because I said at a gig in Australia that we might not be back there for three years. That's probably true, but that's just how a world tour works. No chance are we taking a three-year break." Coldplay last spoke about their next album when they promised fans that the title of the album will be easier to pronounce than 2011 album "Mylo Xyloto". Chris Martin told Australian radio station 2dayfm: "The next one we're releasing is much easier to pronounce." When pushed by presenters Kyle and Jackie O to reveal if they had come up with a name for their sixth studio album, Martin said, "I can't tell you that," before turning to guitarist Jonny Buckland and asking, "Can I give a hint?" Buckland shook his head and said, "No". Meanwhile, Coldplay released their new concert film "Live 2012" earlier this month. The DVD, Blu-Ray and CD also features an "interactive live e-book", described in the marketing blurb as "an in-depth and interactive audio-visual companion piece to 'Live 2012'", and set to feature photographs, videos, Chris Martin's studio journal and more. Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    There first 2 albums were really good. they had great guitar and piano progression and melodies and catchy songs. I don't know what the hell happened to them after that but I guess they felt the need to change in order to stay with current trends in order to keep making money. I cant blame them for that, but i will because they have been terrible ever since lol. still if they somehow recapture that older sound I would give it a shot but i really doubt that. oh well.

    ^You are precisely the type of idiot that needs to keep their opinions to themselves. Coldplay fans never slag off metal bands, what's your problem?

    I agree with you. Metalheads can be the biggest narrowminded ****s in the world.

    I looooove Coldplay. Their music is so great and everybody, who says that Coldplay isn't a good Band, hasn't got ANY clue of what music is about. But it's okay: Stuck on your "Real Rock Shit". So stupid...

    "Coldplay last spoke about their next album when they promised fans that the title of the album will be easier to pronounce than 2011 album "Mylo Xyloto"." ... What fans?
    D4CE
    What a dumb comment. They're one of the biggest bands out there.

    The fans, that help a great band, to survive in the music buisness... Like ME!

    I thought they said that the last one would be the last one, and before the last one, it would have been the last one too.

    Don't know why people hate... This is one of the greatest bands in the world. They write actual music with actual instruments with actual lyrics that make prophetic sense. I agree that their last album was a bit too synthesized for my taste but their older work is just incredible.

    Excited to hear there's a new album coming, I just hope it's better than the crap they released earlier

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, http://www.bing30.com/

    Are you serious? This sounds awesome. I followed the link and I'm trying to figure out how the hell to sign up... Also, what about your divorced friend? Is she looking?

    Why the hell would you put out an album and then NOT tour to promote it? Probably because you have nothing significant to show live.
