Coldplay’s New Album Could Move In A Different Direction

Coldplay is hard at work on their fifth LP, one which may surprise fans a bit. According to front man Chris Martin, the record will address some new topics. It may provide more of an intimate look inside the band.

Coldplay may just bust apart their image as sensitive, hipster-dad rock gods with their fifth LP.

Frontman Chris Martin recently told BBC’s Radio 1 that the platinum-selling collective’s follow-up to the 2008 smash Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends is inspired by the band’s brushes with personal vices and industry drama. The singer and pianist said the record’s content touches on “love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don’t like.” Martin also described the project as a “thinly veiled account of what happens within the group.”

However, Coldplay fans needn’t fret that the upcoming untitled effort — which Martin denied is a concept album as he previously asserted — is an express ticket to Bummerville. The “Clocks” crooner maintained the album “also has a lot of uplifting stuff. It’s supposed to be about life, the good stuff and the bad stuff. Everything.”
