Wow. This is exciting news!
Coldplay has been hard at work for the past few years, recording their follow-up to 2008's Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, and recently, an anonymous blogger called Roadie #42 wrote on the group's official blog that the band is almost finished with album - and it's GOOD!
"Back in the studio, the songs are now very much pushing their heads above the soil and straining towards the light. [Producer] Brian [Eno] is back in the fold this week and the fellas are gathered around the mic for much of the time. It's a tremendous thing to get close up to. When the guys are belting it out with the track on headphones, all that can be heard in the room is the blast of harmonies. It's huge, powerful and yet completely unaided by technology, just a pure, organic human bloom. My office is next door, I hear Chris [Martin] standing in the doorway of Dav's room listening. 'That's amazing, just great.' He stays a while and listens, then heads off down the stairs proclaiming to no-one in particular, 'Maybe this album won't be so bad after all'."
Oh man! Amazing!
We doubt there will be ANYTHING that isn't great, let alone 'not so bad!' LOLz!
We cannot wait to hear some new material! 2008 feels like so long ago!
It's about time, guys!
