Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto

/ 15 September 2011 /
Forget the hate on the 'new Coldplay'. If their recent singles and live performances -- especially at Glastonbury 2011 -- are any indication, the band's fifth album is going to be sweeter.

Set to come out on October 24th, the fifth album is interesting firstly because of its name. Mylo Xyloto. What on earth does that mean? For now, nobody knows and the band isn't talking. But they did say in this cute graffiti-inspired official announcement that "it is pronounced "my-lo zy-letoe" -- as if that's supposed to give us answers. I for one am even more intrigued because of that specific pronunciation.

Complementing the weirdly cool name is the quirky album art, also graffiti-themed and a tad more colorful than you would expect from a band who gave us album titles like "A Rush of Blood to the Head" and "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends".

That's not to say, though, that Coldplay is all cold. This album, for one, will supposedly include personal photos and journals from the band members themselves. And in every other way, the band seems to be taking on a warmer outlook, starting with their music.

This blog is going to be weird or irreverent or relatable, depending on who you are and who I am being. I give my best hello to 'outcasts' like me who may or may not like this blog: HELLO!
