Coldplay News!


We still don't have a track list or release date, but Rolling Stone has heard the new material, and so we now have the most in-depth hype yet surrounding Coldplay's forth-coming LP. Apparently, the Coldplay white board displays a radically different set of tracks than those floating around a little while back. Also, according to RS, "[the new songs] are refreshingly, bracingly different from Coldplay hits like 'Clocks' and 'Speed of Sound.'" Further, the band "explored a variety of sonic directions, something they attribute to Eno's encouragement." Also, the song "42" is being considered as the album's first single, "an elaborate three-part piece, with swirling pianos, strings and beat loops that build to an uptempo climax" which displays, according to RS, Coldplay's "willing[ness] to stray from their formula." Hmm. Verrrrrrry interesting.
