Tash Posted November 30, 2012 Author Share Posted November 30, 2012 COLDPLAY EYE NEW LP COLDPLAY fans have got an early Christmas present – the band is secretly working on a new album. Laughing off reports that he and the lads are taking a three-year break, Chris Martin told me in an exclusive interview that they had begun working on the follow-up to last year’s mega-selling Mylo Xyloto. Chris, 35, told me: “I’ve been writing songs and I’m so fired up about the band’s future. “I’m fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop. This three-year break idea only came about because I said at a gig in Australia that we might not be back there for three years. “That’s probably true, but that’s just how a world tour works. No chance are we taking a three-year break.” The charming frontman was speaking at the launch of an exhibition of Coldplay photos and artwork in aid of children’s charity Kids Company. And the dad of two reckons working with them inspires the band to keep making music. Chris said: “If we don’t work hard we make less money to give Kids Company. We’re very spoiled and that’s a constant motivator to keep going. Our work with the charity is ongoing. We just tried to buy a building for them near our studio in London, but got gazumped. “It was probably Radiohead that outbid us.” The exhibition includes the huge canvas the band helped paint for the cover of Mylo Xyloto. Chris laughed: “It’s mildly embarrassing to see the painting again. It’s not exactly a Monet or Matisse. “But it’s for a good cause and I’m happy to see it because it reminds me of all the ideas we had for the album, which I’m proud of.” link Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
