Coldplay Release ‘Mylo Xyloto’ Album
One of the most successful bands worldwide Coldplay have released their fifth album ‘Mylo Xyloto’, the official website announced today.
The British band, who has often been considered U2 successors, came up with yet another new sound project which consists 14 songs, including three under-minute segues as well as a duet with Rihanna. Although the music critics do not consider the new album as an explosive one, the Englishmen looked pleased with their new work. The 34 year old leader Chris Martin stated at one point that he does not even care if the album doesn’t bring them the same success as the previous ones.
Furthermore, Martin added that he treats every new album as the last one, being willing to get off the stage if ‘asked’. According to the Britons, the album was inspired by New York graffiti works, sings which can be noticed on the album cover. Apart from this, the album also includes messages which refer to the White Rose resistance in Munich, movement which was born during the Third Reich.
Their previous album ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’ had an astonishing success as Coldplay sold nearly 7 million copies only in 2008. They also reached a sell-record of 8,3 million copies back in 2005, year in which they released ‘X&Y’ album.
However, Chris martin looked pleased with the way Coldplay compete against star names like Justin Bieber and Adele. “Now we have Justin Bieber and Adele to compete with and they’re a lot younger. We have to have the energy to put as much effort into our work as they do. If it’s over, it’s over and I can live with that. The most important thing always is to proceed as if every album is the last and not expect anything more,” he said.
Mylor Xyloto album includes: ‘Mylo Xyloto’, ‘Hurts Like Heaven’, ‘Paradise’, ‘Charlie Brown’, ‘Us Against The World’, ‘MMIX’, ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’, ‘Major Minus’, ‘UFO’, ‘Princess Of China’, ‘Up In Flames’, ‘A Hopeful Transmission’, ‘Don’t Let It Break Your Heart’, ‘Up With The Birds’.11
