    Well I decided to pop on over to the Coldplay site and what a surprise - its got a nice new design, and more importantly it had some concrete news on the new album! Among other things mentioned, it WILL be coming out this year! Man I can't wait!

    Also, the band has started touring again althogh all dates and places mentioned on the site are in Europe at the moment. I will definitely be getting tickets for a concert from them...and I'm going to ****ing make sure I get a ticket! :p

    NME.com got to listen to six tracks off the album called ‘Square One, ‘Talk’, ‘‘Till Kingdom Come, ‘X&Y’, What If’ and ‘The Hardest Part

    It's supposed to be a "huge progression" from the classic Coldplay sound, and apparently has influences from 70's era electronica, such as David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and Brian Eno.

    The dedication that the band has to make this album better than the previous in every way is reinforced by the fact thay they scrapped over 40 songs last year while making the new album and they even went back to rehearsing as a four-piece band without the aid of techonology.

    I'll leave with a quote from Chris from the interview:

    I have no doubt that it is going to be absolutely fantastic...or I will be quite dissapointed. No pressure for the band right? :p

    Also, is NME a British magazine? I want to somehow land a copy of the one with the full interview.

    Interesting. I like a lot of their music.
    And yes, NME is a UK-based mag. You could see if one of our Brit buddies here at OSNN could possibly get hold of a copy for you. :)

    If I like this album, I'm going to have to divulge in their influences for this album as well then :)

    I honesty think Coldplay is the best band in the world right now.

    Hmm, that's interesting. They should do what U2 does and take the success as a challenge. If they receive the most outstanding reviews ever, then that will challenge them to make keep making music that is just as good or even better. They might not succeed every time, but the fact is that they are capable of making incredible music. It might also be a good idea to ignore the tabloids as much as possible... that way you're not letting the media affect you doing what you love.

    I think I read somewhere that Martin said that as a joke and the magazine thought he was serious.

    Evil Marge: Speed of Sound (the single you heard) is supposed to be the most watered down song in the whole album, and was made as the mass appeal song ;) The album will *hopefully* be much better.
