Coldplay - Mylo Xyloto

Well you can never say that Chris Martin doesn’t know how to name something. Or is it that you can never say that Chris Martin DOES know how to name something? The way you answer that is most probably defined by where you sit along the Coldplay divide, but it doesn’t change the fact that Mylo Xyloto is what Coldplay has called their new record due out 10/25 via Capitol (10/24 in the UK). According to a press release it “was produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green and Rik Simpson, with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno.” (Hi, enoxification.) It will be available on all your standard formats, and in addition there will be a limited edition run of the “Pop Up Album,” which includes “a 12″ x 12″ hardback book containing graffiti pop-up art designed by David A. Carter, vinyl, CD and exclusive content including photographs, excerpts from the studio diary and the band’s personal notebooks.”

You’ve heard the first single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” and a ton of other songs live; the next official track is called “Paradise,” out 9/12.

At Lollapalooza they added this new song to the setlist called “Hurts Like Heaven,” which also could have been called “Hurts Like All My Friends” because LCD Soundsystem. Check it:

  1. They have a song called “Hurts Like Heaven”? I like Coldplay, but I’m going to say that’s a terrible name. The song sounds good, though.

  2. That album cover aesthetically reminds me of Zooropa (namely the coloring)

    Or maybe it’s just that Coldplay is heading to U2 status? Good or Bad? I dunno. I haven’t listened to them since their Live DVD in 2003.

    that’s a funny name for a horrible disease.

  4. they really love X’s and Y’s, huh??

  5. Hey that’s not the Zooropa cover almost had me there

  6. Definitely looks like graffiti on the Berlin wall, which is totally relevant 20yrs later.

  7. Mylo Xyloto…my first thought after hearing the name and seeing the cover was, “U2?”

    reason #27923864 to hate Coldplay: They have an album called “Mylo Xyloto” … seriously. I thought Chris Martin couldn’t come up with a more horrible name than “Apple” for his own daughter… Guess he just proved me wrong! Kudos to you, sir!
