Coldplay's Twitter jumped into life today when Prospekt added the following entry: The band are back in the studio for a couple of weeks with Brian Eno...
Pitchfork weren't far behind with this article published a short while ago:
When it was first announced that Brian Eno was working with Coldplay back in 2007, some people overreacted, pissed their egghead idol was lowering himself to Chris Martin & Co.'s level. But now, a couple years later and with Viva la Vida and The Prospekt's March EP proving to be solid additions to the sweeping arena rock canon, both entities have prospered from the collaboration. Coldplay are not as terribly uncool as before; Eno can afford that new bathroom (and still make albums with David Byrne). So news that the two are heading back to the studio for a couple weeks (via-- where else?-- Twitter) before Coldplay head out to Tokyo next month is decidedly less controversial than it once was...
The band are playing immense stadiums around the world much of this year, so the possibility of a new release seems slim. Then again, they seem to be in some sort of pleasantly-rocking zone right now, so we'll see. The band is likely to win at least a couple awards at this year's Grammys (airing Febuary 8)-- they did one of those song-collage Grammy ads, too. While we hope Eno worked some magic on U2's new album, the uber-producer is keeping busy by denouncing Israel and stuff.
