Coldplay frontaman, talking to Rolling Stone about the band’s forthcoming album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’,stated: “We wanted to marry all the music that we love, from Drake to Oasis. There was a feeling that we don’t have anything to lose. We’re very comfortable now with the fact that we’re not for everybody”.
Martin added: “It’s about love and acceptance and embracing what happens to you. It’s quite a hippie album. All of our records were a journey to get to this one”.
Interviewed by The Wall Street Journal he also said: “The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like ‘Turn Down For What’. What would we call it if we had one? I thought I’d like to have a song called ‘Drinks On Me’ where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so fucking cool”.
Coldplay new album will be released on December 4 and, as recently announced, it boasts the participation of artists like Beyoncé and Noel Gallagher.
