New Coldplay songs ‘straining towards the light’

Recording sessions for the new Coldplay album are going well, with the new songs ‘straining into the light’ according to a source on the group’s official blog.

The follow-up to their 2008 hit LP Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends is expected to see the light later on this year.

’Back in the studio, the songs are now very much pushing their heads above the soil and straining towards the light,’ the anonymous blogger wrote.

‘Brian [Eno] is back in the fold this week and the fellows are gathered around the mic for much of the time. It's a tremendous thing to get close up to.

’When the guys are belting it out with the track on headphones, all that can be heard in the room is the blast of harmonies. It's huge, powerful and yet completely unaided by technology, just a pure, organic human bloom.’

The fly on the wall blogger continues: ‘My office is next door, I hear Chris [Martin] standing in the doorway of Dav's room listening. 'That's amazing, just great'. He stays a while and listens, then heads off down the stairs proclaiming to no-one in particular: 'Maybe this album won't be so bad after all'.’

Still, anyone hoping for a sneak preview of new material at one of band’s headline appearances at this year's Glastonbury and T in the Park festivals will be disappointed – the group have previously stated that the new material is to be kept strictly under wraps until the release of the album.
