Record label EMI have rubbished reports which claimed Coldplay were keen to complete their contract with the major label.
A report in this morning's Sun newspaper claimed the band could release a new album within the next year, which would be followed by a greatest hits record. But a spokesman for EMI has denied the “inaccurate” claims, and was quoted as saying: “Coldplay are signed to a long term record deal with EMI and are committed to produce a number of albums.”
And, contrary to the claims in the newspaper, which suggest Coldplay may want to head out on their own, the spokesperson added: “The band's relationship with EMI is both long-term and positive.”
Coldplay's relationship with EMI has been under the spotlight since the record label's 2007 takeover by private equity company Terra Firma.
