Coldplay hint at album themes
Coldplay's fifth album may give insight into the group's relationship with each other.
Frontman Chris Martin has been cryptic about what the nearly complete record is about, but said themes covered in the album were "love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don't like," adding that it is a "thinly veiled account of what happens within the group".
Chris - who is joined in the band by bassist Guy Berryman, drummer Will Champion and guitarist Jonny Buckland - also denied his earlier statement that the as-yet-untitled disc will be a concept record.
He added to BBC Radio 1 host Zane Lowe this morning (07.01.11): "It also has a lot of uplifting stuff. It's supposed to be about life, the good stuff and the bad stuff. Everything."
Will also tried to explain the group's thinking for the record, adding: "There's a phrase which my wife told me from a book, where a man is asked, 'Are you married?'
"And he says, 'Yes, of course I'm married. I have a wife, kids; the whole catastrophe.
"Catastrophe just means something big and seismic but not necessarily bad. It's all about embracing the whole thing. Appreciating the good and bad and realising it's all part of life."
Speaking of their working practices, Jonny has previously said the band like to isolate themselves in the studio and can "forget that there are actually other people in the world".
Coldplay's fifth album is expected to be released this year.Posted on 7 Jan 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
