Coldplay's Next Album To Feature Noel Gallagher?

The 'Paradise' band's roadie recalls an impromptu recording session between Chris Martin and the former Oasis man.

Coldplay's next studio album could feature Noel Gallagher according to one of the group's roadies.

During a blog on the 'Yellow' band's official website, the roadie in question recalls a recording session which occurred during rehearsals for the pair's duet at the BRIT Awards 2012.

He wrote: "The piano is right next to Noel's amps. As you'd expect, this is the place to be for getting the full effect of the Gallagher guitar. Noel stamps on a pedal and starts off a loop of glorious noise. Immediately Chris is on his feet and shouting 'what the hell is that?'

"Chris has his iPhone out to record it, excitedly proclaiming it the most amazing thing he's ever heard. Noel is laughing as the pedal loops away through the stack.

"Fast forward to the dressing room on the show day and Chris is handing me the pedal responsible for all the fuss. It turns out that Noel has come in today and motioned Chris over to his dressing room next door with the words 'I've got a little present for yer…'

"Chris is holding it with great reverence and excitement. 'Can you record what's in here immediately? And then give it Rik? We're going to take it back to the studio and run it through Jonny's rig and mic it up'.

"The pedal is only the size of a block of butter, but I find myself carrying it through the backstage in both hands as though dropping it could send the whole place up in smoke.

"Where it'll end up, I’ve no idea, but if it finds its way into a song, Noel could easily be playing on the next record without ever having set foot in the studio. Wonderful madness…"

Coldplay picked up the award for Best British Group on the night at London's O2 Arena and opened the event with a performance of their new song 'Charlie Brown' which is taken from their latest record 'Mylo Xyloto'.
