Coldplay will release a new album in 2010, according to Chris Martin.

The band are currently at work in their own studio, thought to be a converted church, in London. Speaking in a video interview with Globo.com - which you can watch by clicking below - Martin said he wants to release the album "hopefully this Christmas". He added that the band are being extra security-conscious to make sure their new material doesn't leak online.

"There's only two people in the whole building who know how to open all the recording files," Martin explained. "Even we [Coldplay] don't know how to do it. We couldn't even steal our own music at the moment. You would have to be a computer genius and a great burglar to get into the building, and download it, and mix it."

The band also denied that the album would be their last for label EMI. "I think we have about 500 more," Martin initially joked, before adding: "No, seriously, we signed for a lot."

The album will be Coldplay's first since 2008's 'Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends'.
