Chris Martin has been speaking to Ryan Seacrest from 102.7 KIIS FM (Los Angeles radio station) about various things, including the new Coldplay album. He made the call to the DJ shortly after landing in London after the festival performance at 'Where The Action Is' in Sweden.
During the interview, Chris said: "The [fifth] album is not finished - it's been hard to finish, like getting to the final of American Idol. We have thought about the album name, and it is 'hard to spell' and we will reveal it in about six weeks. I think it [the album itself] will be finished in two weeks time. We've tried as hard as we possibly can on this [record]. It's got a lot of guitar on it - Jonny is finally as good as we knew he could be, and now he's become our hero."
Also during the seven minute interview, Chris wasn't sure whether Coldplay were performing at the 2012 Olympic Games in London as had previously been mooted in the media several months ago.
