Chris Martin says the bands new album has a theme
Coldplay‘s Chris Martin has revealed that the band’s forthcoming new record is a “concept album”.
Although he is yet to reveal the album’s title or release date, Martin confirmed that it is “a concept album but it’s supposed to be very personal within a big framework”.
Speaking about the concept, Martin told BBC News: “It’s from the point of view of two people who are a bit lost.”
He added: “Two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together.”
The band have been working with Brian Eno and producer Marcus Dravs on sessions for the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’, with Martin saying they “spent a year making a lot of noise”.
