Coldplay's new album delayed? Not true, says rep

coldplayImage Credit: Sarah LeeDespite a report on Perez Hilton today (via online fan group that Coldplay’s upcoming fifth album has been delayed from this spring to October, a rep for the band says that’s not the case.

The original post, which stated in part,”I can confirm the change of plans in the Coldplay camp regarding the schedule[d] release of LP5, originally before summer. Hope people can wait until October,” has been debunked by the band’s rep, who says there was never a firm release date to delay in the first place.

Frontman Chris Martin has variously described the still-untitled folllow-up to 2008’s Grammy-winning Viva La Vida as being about “two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together” and also addressing “love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don’t like.”

Martin also told the BBC last December: “We spent a year making a lot of noise. You know those things in a fairground where you have bran in a tub and in there are some hidden prizes? That’s sort of where we are at.”

  • UGH

    That about sums up their music.

      Amazing band and was brilliant

    Yawn for you, ugh. Coldplay reached a new level with guidance from Eno. I have high hopes for this one. But I do approach all their albums with skepticism because they are just a darn good band unto themselves.

  • Tiffany

    Does anyone find it strange that this was released one day following the announcement that Gywnneth Paltrow got a record contract. HMMMMM……Things are not good in the Martin household me thinks.

    • RobNJ

      Gwyneth got a contract? I saw her sing for the first time at the Grammys. If she were Gwen Martin or some nobody no way she gets the contract. And there will still be silly people buying her record.

  • dipshat

    Hope it comes out sooner rather than later, but either way i know it’s gonna be great.

    I used to like Coldplay but then they just kind of recycle more of the same. It’s ok, but for me it got old fast. Listening to Rush of Blood to the Head most of it has not aged well. More likely it was overplayed.

  • RobNJ

    Sorry for posting so much. Guess due to the success of Radiohead they feel pressured to do a ‘concept’ record. Guys, you’re a pop band. I am a Radiohead fan but understand why some people would not like their music. At times it is a bit overbearing.

    Just hoping this new album DOESN’T sound like Viva La Vida PART 2.

    • dipshat

      I’m hoping it does but NOT like Prospekt’s March. I’m a huge fan but that album was pretty…sleepy.

    • S.O.

      I don’t mind Viva La Vida. Its a good album. But I hope they don’t repeat it again cause their working w/ Brian Eno. But as a Coldplay fan since 2000, I’d take Parachutes & A Rush Of Blood…. over X&Y & Viva La Vida any day.

  • Frank from

    Though the rep says untrue, I’m betting the new Coldplay album will be postponed from June or July to sometime between September through November with October as likeliest. That does read as a probable scenario.

    I loved Viva La Vida to death. I was a minor fan of theirs, only listening to various songs off their albums, but once Viva La Vida hit I am now a fan for life!

    • dipshat

      Everything you said was exactly what happened to me!

      • Tiffany

        That is how I feel about X&Y. I owned it and listened to a few songs. Now it is one of my favorite albums and one I listen to beginning to end. It is neck and neck with ‘Head’ as one of their best albums.

  • Dave

    I just hope it sounds like Satriani, AGAIN…

  • angeljake

    I liked Parachutes…I think you can still enjoy that one as a mellow CD

  • googie

    Is it me? I keep reading and I’m not understanding what is being said! It is cool code?

  • Jennifer

    Coldplay is one of the best bands ever, and they are very humble about themselves. I like their older songs like bigger, stronger, moses, things that I don’t understand, ect.. i think x and y is their best albumn and I love it that Chris has a nice clean haircut now like the old days. I have heard some of their latest songs on youtube from the rock am concert and love their new songs. I cannot wait for the new albumn to come out.
