Coldplay and Sigur Ros will be collaborating on Coldplay's new album. A video from the session is now available on YouTube
we are now happy to announce that kjartan will also be writing and arranging strings for 4 songs on coldplay’s as-yet-untitled follow up album to 2008’s acclaimed ‘viva la vida’. kjartan has already completed most of the arrangements, which are set to be recorded in late spring. in addition to kjartan’s contribution, jónsi will join chris martin on vocals on one of the album’s songs. we were fortunate enough to be allowed to visit coldplay’s rehearsal space while jónsi and chris were rehearsing their collaboration, which promises to be nothing short of amazing.
Meanwhile, Brian Eno and Alan McGee are still fighting for that parachute. Come on Brian, you can do it!
