The best Scrabble word ever? Coldplay’s Chris Martin on Mylo Xyloto
Coldplay’s latest album will be a “love story in a big, dark, scary city.” So, part dream and part nightmare? “So you have a boy and a girl and a group of like-minded people in a sort of George Orwell-type or Kafkaesque world. But it’s hopeful, because it’s about people trying to transcend troubles,” said Chris Martin, regarding Coldplay’s soon-to-be-released album “Mylo Xyloto.” Martin probably hopes it also transcends the pop charts — each of the band’s four albums have sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S., though that number’s been on the decline the past couple of years, matching the music industry at large. Will the fifth buck the trend? source

pitchfork:

Coldplay’s new album, Mylo Xyloto, is out October 24 via Capitol. We don’t know what Mylo Xyloto means, either.

Clearly it means, “Second-generation U2 who only had one decent song named ‘Yellow,’” Pitchfork. EDIT: Apologies to any Coldplay fans offended by our take on Coldplay. Nothing personal, we just REALLY disliked “Clocks” back in 2004.
