Coldplay Working On New Album And Possible Rihanna Collaboration

Coldplay Working On New Album And Possible Rihanna Collaboration

They may have only released their sixth studio album in May, however Coldplay front-man Chris Martin has confirmed that album number seven is already in the works, with plans to collaborate with Rihanna.

“We knew we wanted to make this thing called Ghost Stories, and then make something else” Martin said in a recent interview with US radio station Fresh 102.7. “Worst answer of all time” he added, “but we have an idea, then we’re gonna go on tour after that.”

The British rock outfit, who were recently in Australia to play a one-off show at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, have hinted a tour in the near future.

Coldplay previously worked with Rihanna, when she lent her vocals to the band’s single ‘Princess Of China’ from 2011’s Mylo Xyloto. Remarking on the collaboration, Martin said: “I love being in the studio with Rihanna. It wasn’t necessarily with… I was working for her. I don’t think she even asked, I just said, ‘Please can I try something?’”

When asked if the ‘Diamonds’ singer would guest on Coldplay’s next musical venture, he said: “I hope so, yeah. I have a really nice song which… maybe, I hope so.”

During the band’s brief return to Australia in June, they caused quite the stir, with hundreds of fans crowding the streets of Newtown to star as extras in the video for their single, ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’. With Martin leading the crowd like a pied piper, it was all confetti cannons, cheesy smiles and cameras. The band also collaborated with our very own pop princess, Kylie Minogue, sharing the stage to perform the singer’s 1995 duet with Nick Cave, ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’ and the aptly named hit ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’.
