Capitol Eyes March British Invasion





Capitol Records' release schedule will have a British flair in March, when the label will issue highly anticipated, as-yet-untitled new albums from Coldplay and Doves, Billboard.com has learned. Doves' set will arrive March 1; the Coldplay album does not have a definitive street date.


Produced by Ken Nelson, who was behind the boards for the band's two prior studio sets, the Coldplay album was recorded in London and New York. It's the follow-up to 2002's "A Rush of Blood to the Head," which peaked at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 3.5 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.


Frontman Chris Martin acknowledged in a summer radio interview that fatherhood had put a new spin on his songwriting. The artist had a baby girl, Apple, earlier this year with actress Gwyneth Paltrow.


"Once you're going to have a baby, [writing about] that kicks in anyway," he said. "So it's been happening for 10 months, but I mean, I'm not singing about [diapers] or anything."


As previously reported, Coldplay is expected to make its return to the live stage, possibly armed with new material, as part of a March 12 benefit for California radio station KCRW in Los Angeles.


As for Doves, the group is putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to its 2002 breakthrough, "The Last Broadcast," which has sold 109,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. album chart and was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. The new album will be released in February in the region.


Doves have promised to unveil new songs at their first shows in more than a year, to be held Dec. 14 in Wolverhampton, England, Dec. 15 in London and Dec. 17 in Blackpool, England.

here's an update from coldplay.com and the one an only Debs Wild... :cool: I had to share it with you guys...


I went to the studio today to see the band, they are all in fine form and things are nearly done there.

Chris invited me to listen to some of the finished tracks which was very exciting. Many people had been asking me something since The Nappies, so here it is officially from first hand knowledge and I hope you'll all be glad to know, there's not a rap or hip hop beat in sight!

I will tell you that one song has used a Krafwerk hook, but it's not an electronica album.

I can't give away titles and stuff, but I can tell you it's sounding great!!

It's again a deparure from the last album, but still our Coldplay, so nothing too drastic.


They say hello to you all and hopefully Will is going to be the featured interviewee for the end of year Ezine/Newsletter.


A very happy Debs




cheers! :cool:
