Coldplay's Martin Finds Gold In Sexsmith's Hills

It's Chris Martin week, I do believe. News of Coldplay's new album, A
Rush of Blood to the Head
, surfaced yesterday and now comes news that the
soft-spoken frontman will feature on the next album from Canadian singer-songwriter
Ron Sexsmith. The two met Down Under last year when the English band asked
the wacky Canadian to open up for them on a few dates. This fast friendship continued as
Sexsmith appeared on premier UK live music TV show Later With Jools
Holland and Martin approached his management to work out any collaborative
opportunities. And now one has come to fruition. "Gold In Them Hills" will appear on
Ron's Cobblestone Runway album, due out in September. Between his own
album and collaborations with UK act Faultline and now Sexsmith, as well
as overseas charity work, Mr. Martin has been a busy little beaver indeed.
