    Coldplay Namecheck XFM

    xfm19990418.jpgChris Martin has marked the first time he heard his band on Xfm as one of the finest moments in Coldplay’s career so far, via a journal entry on their official website.


    Martin reveals the exactly moment that Coldplay first heard themselves on air on 104.9 Xfm, at exactly 3.45am on April 18 1999, via a journal timeline which displays written excerpts, pictures and videos at www.coldplay.com.

    The written excerpt says: “18th April 1999 Me & Tim hear Brothers and Sisters at 3.45am in the morning on Xfm”


    ‘Brothers and Sisters’ was the first ever single released by Coldplay, with only 1500 vinyl copies pressed through Fierce Panda. Martin also goes on to reveal that he can never listen to his songs on the radio again, writing,

    “Every time since this, I turn the radio off if any of our songs comes on, but this first play we got was pretty special, so we listened. But I still got that weird feeling you get when you hear your own answerphone message. CM”


    Coldplay’s fourth studio album is being penned for release early next year, and is rumoured to be nearly complete, with the main recording sessions done, and now being mixed. The record is reportedly to be made up of approximately nice songs, and clocks (ahem) in a around 42 minutes).


    Tracks rumoured to be included are 'Lost', 'Cemeteries of London', 'Violet Hill', 'Poppy Fields', '42', 'Yes', 'Leftrightleftrightleft' and 'Rainy Day'.
