Coldplay Say Bling Bling Is Not The Answer

 

07 November 2003

Coldplay have scrapped over 40 songs as they hit the recording studio to start work on their third album!

Said frontman Chris Martin: "So far all we've achieved is managing to scrap 42 songs. I regard that as constructive destruction.

"We want to record and record and record. We've already started. We spend half of the night writing. The great thing about flying back from America is that you're up all night and you can just work. It strikes me the more fame and success you get, the more you realise that the only thing that's really worth anything is the thing that made you want to get famous and successful in the first place. And that is writing tunes. It's not about hanging out with Jay-Z. Although he is cool. That's not the answer, the answer is putting down your favourite new song or being with the people you love the most. It's not about the bling bling aspect. We've got some tunes man, let me tell you that!"
