Coldplay Countrified

 

23 September 2005

We always knew that Coldplay were musical trail-blazers, never afraid of breaking a few rules when it comes to creating music but this is ridiculous. Chris Martin has revealed that he wants to get the group all boot scootin'-y countrified!!

"Country is a very sleeping beast within us," says Martin. "We have two things we're not allowed to do - country and rap - just because of where we're from. So I think they'll rear their heads at some point in the future."

While the idea of Coldplay gettin' jiggy with some rapping and all hillbilly with a country track or two seems like a bit of a joke, Martin is serious.

"I think the only future for music is if you bring together the most disparate worlds," he states. "That would be an album between Garth Brooks, Coldplay and Kanye West and produced by Timbaland."
