'Prospect' Track List and Tentative Release Date Leaked
January 16, 2008 1:04 AM
Some online retailers suggest that Coldplay's fourth album, 'Prospekt', will see the light of day in May. This contradicts last week's stories of the band withholding the album due to their reported displeasure with label EMI.
The band have been working on the follow-up to 'X&Y' with producer Brian Eno for the last year. 'Prospekt' is said to have a running time of 43 minutes and will include:
'Famous Old Painters'
'Glass Of Water'
'Cemeteries of London'
May 19 has been mooted as the release date.

Fast News Day?
January 09, 2008 12:24 AM
In a single article at Xfm (and covered in several other articles elsewhere), quite a few interesting rumors have been unveiled regarding Coldplay's plans. First off, the big news of the day seems to be that Coldplay may be leaving their current record label, EMI, before the release of the studio album to follow the album currently known as 'Prospekt'. This rumor is being thrown around because another rumor has popped up that the band will be releasing a greatest hits album in 2009, which would finish out their five-album deal with EMI. In addition to those rumors, it's been suggested that their fourth album, the one we're currently awaiting, may show up to buy and/or download in May or June of this year.
So, in short:
- Coldplay may be leaving their current record label, EMI, in the near future.
- Coldplay's forthcoming album, which is tentatively titled 'Prospekt,' may show up in stores in May or June of this year.
- The follow-up to 'Prospekt' may be a greatest hits album.
It makes sense to hear that Coldplay will be leaving their options open at the end of their contract considering all that is currently going on in the music industry right now. However, I have to say I am a bit surprised to hear that they're already considering putting out a greatest hits album. I'd much prefer a Rarities/B-Sides type of release myself, but I guess that's just me.
Stay tuned for more information on the band, their label, the new album and the rumored greatest hits album as it becomes available.

Q Predicts Reinvention for Coldplay in 2008
January 02, 2008 12:53 AM
In a preview feature on the coming twelve months in music, The Q Daily predicts that 2008 will be a year of reinvention for Coldplay:
On the horizon, then, are new albums from such established acts as Coldplay, U2, Oasis R.E.M., The Verve, Green Day, Madonna, Metallica and more. In the case of Coldplay and U2, at least, the scent of re-invention is in the air.
We've heard "reinvention" and "Coldplay" uttered in the same breath before and we got more of the same ol' Coldplay that we all love, so it will be interesting to see if Chris and the guys really do reinvent themselves this year. Either way I think it's going to be a great year for Coldplay fans.
