Plans for 4th Album
April 23, 2006 1:09 PM
New father and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin will be back at the studio to record the band's fourth album by the end of this year, according to bandmates.
The Fix You hitmaker announced plans to take time out at the February Brit Awards, but has reassured bandmates he will be back to work sooner than expected, despite the birth of his second child Moses earlier this month.
Bassist Guy Berryman says, "We hope to have something together by January. We're going to make sure with our new album that everyone remembers why Coldplay are one of the best bands in the world."

Chris Martin is a Dad...Again
April 11, 2006 7:30 AM
Continuing their run of somewhat Biblically-themed monikers, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 29, and wife, Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 33, gave birth to a baby boy and named him Moses. The child, the couple's second, was born this past weekend in New York City. Paltrow's publicist confirmed the news.
The Martins have a daughter, Apple Blythe Alison, who will turn two years old in May.
Martin and Paltrow were wed in a private ceremony in Santa Barbara, California, in December 2003.
Coldplay recently wrapped a winter jaunt with singer-songwriter Fiona Apple and former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft, in support of their latest effort, X&Y. That album, the follow-up to 2002's A Rush of Blood to the Head, debuted at Number One last June, and has since sold more than three million copies.

Chris Martin on Mariah Carey's Boobs
April 09, 2006 10:48 AM
Coldplay's latest hit is an ode to the assets of Mariah Carey.
Except you would have had to have been at the China Club on Thursday to hear its one-off performance.
Chris Martin's band was giving a private concert for winners of a contest sponsored by radio station WPLJ, when he was asked about the competition between Coldplay's "X&Y" and Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" for biggest-selling album of 2005.
When WPLJ reporter Brad Blanks asked Martin how he felt about having Mariah on his tail, he replied: "She's not, but one of her boobs is. They do most of her work. Last week I was chased down the street by an enormous boob. I think it was hers."
Martin even made up a song on the spot, sitting at his keyboard: "Man's been traveling through space and man's been to the moon and man's spent most of his intelligence desiring Mariah Carey boobs."
As the crowd laughed, he continued: "Mariah Carey's boobs are so nice, and she don't mess around. If she had been aboard the Titanic, there's no way that ship would have gone down."
Can't wait for Mariah's response track.
