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

Posted on


Image Credit: Sarah LeeDespite a report on Perez Hilton today (via online fan group coldplaying.com) 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 coldplaying.com 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.”
