Coldplay have confirmed that their fifth studio album, ‘Mylo Xyloto’ (pronounced my-lo zy-letoe) will be released by EMI/Parlophone Records on October 24 (October 25 in the US by EMI’s Capitol Records).
Produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green, Rik Simpson with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno, the album follows 2008′s ‘Viva La Vida’ which reached no.1 in 36 countries.
‘Mylo Xyloto’ will be released in digital, CD and vinyl formats. The 180-gram vinyl edition will include a 12” x 36” poster. A special limited edition pop-up album version will also be available, which will include 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. The “reversible” cover art was just revealed at www.coldplay.com. Half of the CDs will be packaged with the full color artwork as the cover while the other 50% will have the CD booklet flipped, showing the silver initials “M X” via a die-cut sheet placed over the color image.
‘Paradise’, the band’s new single will be released as a commercial single on September 12, the same day it goes to radio. In the meantime, here’s a reminder of Coldplay’s great current single ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’:
