Coldplay - Coldplay Begin Work On New Album With Brian Eno

COLDPLAY have begun work on their fifth studio album and the follow up the hugely successful 2008 record 'Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends'. Speaking to BBC News, singer CHRIS MARTIN confirmed that the group were again working with acclaimed producer BRIAN ENO, and promised that the new songs would be more "intimate and worldly".
The 33-year-old front man said, "It's 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", before adding, "It's a concept album, but it's supposed to be very personal within a big framework. Does that make sense?" The band will be hoping the new record emulates the success of their GRAMMY AWARD winning fourth album, which spawned the hit single 'Viva La Vida', and sold 9 million copies worldwide.
Although no release date has been scheduled for the as yet untitled album, sessions for the record have been in full flow, and Martin described their recent time in the studio as "making a lot of noise". The band are set to play a pair of sold-out gigs later month for the UK homeless charity 'Crisis'.
