Justin Timberlake Inspires Coldplay Album


Recommended Posts



Justin Timberlake was the inspiration for Coldplay's new album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, according to frontman Chris Martin.


The band's drummer Will Champion is such a fan of Timberlake's hit track Cry Me A River, he used it as inspiration for one of their's tracks, Lost!


Martin says, "One song we're always trying to chase is Cry Me A River in terms of the beats and everything.I know that is one of Will's favourite songs. And he did all the drums on Lost!"

Lost? There are no drums in the version i've heard - what version is that? I thought that was the album version?


I think the version that is already known is "Lost?" which is an acoustic version of the album song "Lost!".

There is a clip somewhere (don't know where exactly, but I'm sure you'll find it on Youtube unless it has been removed again by EMI..) with an interview and a short snippet of "Lost!" in the background and it has quite the hip-hop beat! I liked what I heard so far..

nah dont worry mate! chris is just jokin. he loves winding up the media! in fact, they dont like him at all. i saw a MTV interview where coldplay was on one side, JT on the other. chris turned to timberlake and said: we dont care about our looks and being handsome, we care about the music :D. there is another video on you tube where chris makes fun of him in a show!
