Coldplay's "X & Y" has only been out for a few months, but the British band are already thinking about their next album.
Singer Chris Martin has told a US newspaper that working with famed producer and former Roxy Music keyboardist Brian Eno has inspired them to come up with something darker next time they're in the studio.
"Well, working with Eno is really kind of an overstatement," Chris explained. "He came in for one evening. The reason why it's good to have him on the record sleeve is that a lot of the music he wasn't there for was sort of inspired by the records he made 10 or 20 years ago.
"This is all stuff I think we're about to embrace. I want to get fast, dark and heavy, with no pianos. Not necessarily heavier in terms of Metallica, just a bit more powerful."
