Coldplay To Release New Album By Christmas

February 22, 2010 by  

Surely it’s too early to be bounding around the notion of Christmas stocking fillers, but Chris Martin and Co. are already tying in the festive season with the release of their fifth album.

In a video interview for the show Fantastico broadcasted last night for TV Globo in Brazil, Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland confirmed that they hope to release the next Coldplay album at the end of 2010.

“Hopefully this Christmas”, Chris Martin said in the interview, when asked about releasing Coldplay’s fifth album. When discussing possible leaking of the new material, Chris continued, “There are only two people in the whole building who know how to open all the recording files. Even we (Coldplay) don’t know how to do it. We couldn’t even steal our own music. You would have to be a computer genius and a great burglar to get into the building, and download it, and mix it.”

It was also confirmed in the interview that Coldplay’s next record would not be the last with EMI “We signed for a lot [of records], it won’t be the last one. We’re ‘owned’, we can’t do anything without asking someone’s permission.”
