Brian Eno Talks Coldplay's "Fresh" and "Quiet Different" New Album
Published Feb 26, 2010As we reported earlier this week, Coldplay are back in the studio recording the follow-up to their better-than-the-average Coldplay album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends. Today (February 26), legendary musician/producer Brian Eno confirmed that he will once again be working with the band on the new as-yet-untitled LP.
In response to singer Chris Martin's claim that the album could be out before Christmas, Eno told BBC 6 Music, "I think it could be. It's quite different from anything they've done before I think, so far anyway. I don't know how it will end up being, but it's very fresh."
To get the most out of the band, Eno notoriously pulled Martin out of the studio while recording Viva la Vida, an album he also produced. This time, he's planning to do more tinkering, including putting different combinations of the band in the studio at once.
"I think that if you have a group of four people, that's lots of possible combinations," Eno said. "You can have any one of them on their own, and you can have lots of couples within that four. A and B, A and C, A and D. I think every one of those is a unique musical entity that will produce something unique."
Something unique? From Coldplay? Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
