Coldplay close to finishing new album

Band's fourth album is at mixing stage

Coldplay have reached the mixing stage of their fourth album, it has been revealed.

Kenny Anderson (aka King Creosote) revealed that his producer Jon Hopkins has been working on the production of Coldplay’s new album. He told BBC 6Music that Hopkins recently mixed a song with Coldplay’s Chris Martin.

“He’s [Hopkins] done a mix of a song for them [Coldplay], I think they’re really happy with that,” said Anderson, before going on to explain that Hopkins had been playing keyboard on the new album.

“He’s sitting in as their sort of guest keyboard player,” he said. “They’ve been rehearsing for the new album, and he’s sitting in doing keyboard parts, so I think they’re trying stuff out.

“I don’t know whether he’ll get to go and play live with the band or not.”
