Music: The best Scrabble word ever? Coldplay’s Chris Martin on Mylo Xyloto

  • Coldplay’s latest album will be a “love story in a big, dark, scary city.” So, part dream and part nightmare? “So you have a boy and a girl and a group of like-minded people in a sort of George Orwell-type or Kafkaesque world. But it’s hopeful, because it’s about people trying to transcend troubles,” said Chris Martin, regarding Coldplay’s soon-to-be-released album “Mylo Xyloto.” Martin probably hopes it also transcends the pop charts — each of the band’s four albums have sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S., though that number’s been on the decline the past couple of years, matching the music industry at large. Will the fifth buck the trend? source

Music: Coldplay is trying something weird, says their roadie

  • Chris has been banned from the studio for these first two weeks. Now, before the rumour mill cranks its way excitedly into life, this does not indicate any kind of split in the camp.
  • “Roadie #42” • An anonymous informant, on Coldplay’s latest period in the studio with producer/musical God/guy who created ambient music Brian Eno. Eno is separating Chris Martin from the rest of the band, in an attempt to get them to create wildly different compositions. Martin’s keeping busy by producing another artist. • source
