Timbaland's drums inspire Coldplay's "Lost"

Remember how excited you got when you read this article last year? At the time, we had just heard the alternate of the Chris Martin/Nelly Furtado/Timo collabo "All Good Things" and we heard rumors about Tim doing Coldplay's album but finally we had some proof.

Fast forward to this year and when Coldplay's new album Viva La Vida is released on June 17th, it will be Timless. The Timbo influence is still there however, as Chris Martin confirmed recently. "One song we're always trying to chase is 'Cry Me A River' in terms of beats and everything. I know that is one of Will's [drummer Will Champion] favorite songs and he did all the drums on "Lost!"

Timbaland remix anyone?

  3. Haven't heard lost but I feel that Viva La Vida (the song) is ready made for a Tim remix. The drums could use a boost, not to mention all the hi hats and stutters he could add.

    I really hope Tim does some kind of remixing for Coldplay, though. I actually think if he remixed the entire album, that would be better than if he produced the whole thing at the begining.

  6. Cool but that's as close as I want Tim to get with working on a Coldplay album - i'm actually happy the rumours were dismissed.

  9. This album sounds like something God made without Timbaland. With that said, I'd be happy without a Timbaland remix or anything. Just buy it.

  11. "what? no i deff think that coldplay and tim would be amazing together!"

    but not necessary. or else tim would have been on this album.

    I mean, if you listen to "Clocks" and then to Brandy's "Should I Go"... I'll admit, the drums do bring a nice sound to the beat, but Tim just took a spectacular song and stripped it of much of its original value.

  12. Brian Eno's production is killing Timbo's, Danja's, Hannon's, or whoever......I'm a Timbo fan but I'm sorry. Coldplay made the right decision in going to Brian Eno for production on their new album.

  13. for the album or overall to each their own.

  14. no i think that it would be amazing for a tim/coldplay album. a remix would be ok but i think an album with both camps going into it and starting from the ground up would be hot.

    and yea ur right i think that "Should I Go" is an ok beat by itself but compared to "Clocks"... it doesent even stand up to that sort of magic and beauty Coldplay got on that joint.

    im kinda curious to see how a tim/coldplay album would come out because coldplays music is what makes them coldplay. not just the voice...

  15. Well, Chris Martin's appearance on Kanye West's "Homecoming" left more to be desired. If Tim's gonna work on a Coldplay album (with OR without Danja), and produce beats as monotonous as that of the aforementioned song, then I'd pass.

    And, I know that Tim wouldn't pull out all the stops. Tim's showing on Duran Duran's most recent album would have been a bit better if he and/or Nate didn't filter out some of the shit that the band did in the sessions.

  17. There are indeed drums in "Lost!" Are you listening to "Lost?" (bonus track which I've yet to get my hands on) or another Coldplay song?
