Coldplay's New Album: From X&Y to Viva la Vida

And now for something completely different. Pitchfork notes that Coldplay's new album, slated for June 17, will have...ready for this?...Latin America flair:

"The sights, sounds and flavours of Latin America and Spain have definitely been infused into this album...No maracas or castanets, but a vibrancy and colourfulness that owes much to the atmospheres of Buenos Aires and Barcelona. The effect is subtle but important."

The title is Viva la Vida, either that or Death and All His Friends. Here's hoping that Viva gets the nod. Trying to picture (with your ears) what Latin American Coldplay will sound like? Me too...

Huh. Put me down as "intrigued."

I remember reading an interview with Coldplay when X&Y came out in which Chris Martin agreed with the interviewer that for that album Coldplay had "pimped its ride": still unmistakably Coldplay, but . . . different. Anyway, the new one sounds like something to look forward to hearing.
