Coldplay aren’t going to take a break after all – they’ll release a new album next year.

Despite reports the band were going to take a break following their upcoming tour Chris Martin has confirmed Coldplay will release new material in 2007.

However, the album will consist of songs which didn’t make it onto their last LP X&Y – but Martin claims many of the songs are better than those included on the multi-million seller.

He tells the Daily Star, “A lot of the songs we had written for X&Y didn't make it on to the final album and looking back at them now, they certainly should have done.

"By the time we had to pick what was and wasn't going on, it was very late in the day and a lot of the best songs have never been played since. It means X&Y wasn't as good as it could or should have been, I'm afraid.

"How You See The World is one of those songs. It will probably appear on an album next year with other ones that we left off."
