Coldplay singer Chris Martin told NME.com that during recent recording sessions for their next album, the band decided to scrap 42 songs that they had already written. Martin said, "I regard that as constructive destruction. But numbers are insignificant. You could say 'I've written 12 songs' and they're all rubbish, or you could say you've written one song and it could be 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. I'm glamorizing it, but we were just in Chicago and we scrapped a lot of songs."
The vocalist told the magazine that coming up with material isn't a problem. "We want to record and record and record...it strikes me the more fame and success you get, the more you realize 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. We've got some tunes man, let me tell you that!"
Martin said that the band's next album, the follow-up to their phenomenally successful 2002 release, A Rush Of Blood To The Head, won't be out until the end of 2004.
