We don't care what it is, so long as it's GOOD!
Despite previously announcing that the group was working on a concept album, Chris Martin is now claiming that his band, Coldplay's follow-up to 2008's Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends has consistent themes, but that's it!
"[It's about] love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don't like… It's supposed to be about life - the good stuff and the bad stuff. Everything. It also has a lot of uplifting stuff, but it's not a 'concept album.'"
Drummer Will Champion elaborates:
"There's a phrase which my wife told me from a book, I can't remember which book, but 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 realizing it's all part of life."
It sounds like they've put a lot of thought into this one, so we're pretty psyched!
We're very curious to hear how their sound has evolved as they've developed this one!
What do U think?? Are U excited for new Coldplay??
