MUSIC NEWS - Chris Martin has informed the BBC that Coldplay’s next release will be a concept album. He explained it as being “from the point of view of two people who are a bit lost, two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together.” He said, “It’s a concept album but it's supposed to be very personal within a big framework. Does that make sense?”
The band will again be working with noted producer / musician Brian Eno, who recently released his latest project, ‘A Small Craft On A Milk Sea’, as well as Marcus Dravs. Martin credited Eno with the idea to do a concept album, and reported, “Brian is the sower of seeds and ideas and experimenting, which is very liberating.”
Coldplay's last album, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends was also produced by Eno and Marcus Dravs, the guys that Martin called a “tag team”. Expect a more experimental sound than their previous work, with Martin stating, “We spent a year making a lot of noise.”
