Coldplay are already planning to start recording demos for their fifth album, while they are on a temporary break, according to The Sun this weekend. The band are expected to release the album in late 2010. More discussion on the latest news on LP5 is at the Coldplay forum now.
Having just wrapped up their world tour (well for now - they'll head out to South America next month), Coldplay are eager to get back to work on the follow-up to 2008's 'Viva La Vida'. "They have got a huge reserve of ideas together during their time on the road and they want to get the demos down while they are fresh," a source close to Coldplay told The Sun. "They are already excited about the next project."
The Sun also focussed on Coldplay's new home, saying online about Viva: "The last one was written and put down at their London studio The Bakery. Now they have moved up the road to a posh new purpose built facility."
Chris Martin had said back in May that the band's next record will be a concept album revolving around a secret story, and that he wants follow-up to 'Viva La Vida' to have 'less fanfare', according to NME. The frontman revealed that the band want to take a break from touring to work on the follow-up to 'Viva La Vida', which he says will be more stripped-down than its predecessor. "We spend an awful lot of time creating," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Maybe it's because we're about to turn 33, but I just feel hungry to write all the time. I think at the end of this tour, we may not tour for a while. We may put out a record without quite so much fanfare. I think the next one will be quite stripped-down and based upon this story idea which I can't talk about because it might be bad."
Meanwhile, prior to last year's Glasgow concert, when asked about Coldplay's plans, Guy Berryman said: "We're going to start work on the new record next year (2009)." As for when he expected anything to come out from this, he said: "When it's good, it could be a year, it could be two years. We'll just have to start work and see how it shapes up. There are a few ideas being thrown around but I can't tell you anything about it, not that it's secret...just because I don't know!"
