    Coldplay frontman Chris Martin told the BBC that the band's forthcoming fifth album will consist of clear, consistent themes, instead of being a traditional concept album. That's a lot of "Cs."

    According to Martin, the as-yet untitled effort will addresses of "love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don't like," as will be a "a thinly veiled account of what happens within the group." Wow, how's that for music as a therapy session? I wonder if Martin will address his wife Gwyneth Paltrow's battle with post-partum depression after their birth of their second child, son Moses. It seems like he is keeping it about work and not about family. But I guess only time will tell.

    The new Coldplay album is due at the end of 2011.

    Are you a Coldplay fan? Do you think Martin should duet with his wife, who has a budding music career with Country Strong and Glee?
