Chris Martin: ‘Coldplay’s new record is a concept album’

'It's about two people who are a bit lost,' says frontman

Coldplay‘s Chris Martin has revealed that the band’s forthcoming new record is a “concept album”.

Although he is yet to reveal the album’s title or release date, Martin confirmed that it is “a concept album but it’s supposed to be very personal within a big framework”.

Speaking about the concept, Martin told BBC News: “It’s from the point of view of two people who are a bit lost.”


He added: “Two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together.”

The band have been working with Brian Eno and producer Marcus Dravs on sessions for the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’, with Martin saying they “spent a year making a lot of noise”.

Coldplay are due to play two charity gigs in the UK later this month.
