Coldplay Name Fourth Album
Chris Martin reveals the name of the bands next record
Coldplay will call their fourth album Viva La Vida according to singer Chris Martin.
The Spanish title translates as long live life and Martin told Rolling Stone it was inspired by a Frida Kahlo painting and added: I just loved the boldness of it.
Its a departure from the names of their previous LPs- Parachutes, A Rush of Blood To the Head and X and Y.
Chris admitted the new title may bring to mind a certain Latin singer, saying: Everyone thinks it comes from Ricky Martin, which is fine. I have absolute respect.
Reports say Viva La Vida- which is produced by legendary experimental producer Brian Eno- is set for release on June 16.
