Coldplay said that the record is "very dense" due to the various colors and melodies packed within the album.
More updates on Coldplay's highly-anticipated album has been posted on their official site. Apart from the already announced tracks, the band have finished two more, titled 'Famous Old Painters' and 'Glass of Water' which will be released with the rest in early 2008.
The band have been working on the album with producer Brian Eno and, reportedly, Timbaland. "As you'd expect with Brian Eno, there's experimentation and exploration," the post read. "But the music still has integrity. It's real and honest. There's no posturing or bombast. When the deadline comes and the work is done, this will be the album I always dreamed we'd make."
In July, the band announced that they seek inspiration for the album in churches of Barcelona, Spain. Spanish flavor will be added because "the effect is subtle but important," the band revealed.
They are currently mixing for the two new tracks and said that the record is "very dense". "There are so many melodies and colors packed into a relatively short space (42 minutes)," the post added.
