Apparently to counter the shallow slightness of their own sound, Coldplay has decided to feature crazy neon graffiti as album artwork. I'm getting a very Joel Schumacher/Batman Forever vibe from this thing. A Coldplay album with a Joel Schumacher vibe *shudder*.
Mylo Xyloto will be released October 25. On September 12, the band will release "Paradise" their second single from the album. You can find the video for the album's first single "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" below. Yes- those are the real track names. Coldplay is in full Aldous Snow/African Child territory. And I'm not sure they even realize it's happening.
