Timbaland is planning to give British rockers Coldplay an urban twist when he produces songs for their upcoming album.
The beatmaker - real name TIMOTHY MOSLEY - is the brains behind Nelly Furtado's hit MANEATER and Justin Timberlake's SEXYBACK.
And he's now turning his hand to the Chris Martin-fronted band.
Talking about his production process, Timbaland says, "I try to get into their heads, see what they thinking about. I just try to figure out how they are feeling.
"And if they are feeling a certain way, I go by that. It's more about everyday life - then it (should) be about music."
Coldplay are also working with legendary producer Brian Eno for the follow-up to 2005's X+Y.
