In last year's awards ceremony, Coldplay's roadie Miller was there representing the official site and was sat on the same table as Coldplaying's Pete and Anna. Miller was understandably cautious about revealing too much about Coldplay's new album but Pete did report back the following:
"LP5 chatter: Miller was guarded (mutual understanding there ) but said the guys [Coldplay] are working INCREDIBLY hard. I asked if it [the new album] really was as good as it sounds and he couldn't put it into words. He said there's LOTS of experimentation going on but at the same time...and trailed off with a glimmer in his eye...(I read that, rightly or wrongly, as them going back to their roots in some way - maybe that was just what I wanted to hear?). The huge notebook stuffed full of ideas from the blog? There's not just one [notebook] people!! So, it looks like our boys are working on something as big or bigger than Viva possibly. Is that the problem with the band? Too many ideas delaying releases? It is for me! I told Miller we'd take an album of half-finished ideas every couple of months!!"
Here's hoping for some more juicy gossip on the Mylo Xyloto era - but first we need your votes to get there....!
