Brian Eno producing new Coldplay album

He says it will be 'very original'

Brian Eno has revealed he is to produce Coldplay‘s fourth album.

Billboard reports that Eno revealed the news in an interview with BBC Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’, and says the new material “will be very original and very different from what they’ve done before”.

Coldplay are currently holed up in their recently purchased London studio, having started arranging the follow-up to 2005’s ‘X&Y’ last October.

Guitarist Jonny Buckland last year revealed to NME.COM that the band started writing the new album as soon as they completed ‘X&Y’.

The band will showcase the new material to fans on their Latin American tour, which kicks off on February 14 in Santiago, Chile.
