Coldplay roadie posts teasers for new album 'Mylo Xyloto'
Details of two songs emerge on band's official blog
The band release their fifth studio album on October 24. It is produced once again by Brian Eno. Now, the band's official blog, which is updated by one of their roadies, has posted teasers about two songs.
Describing a new track called 'Up In Flames' which was written shortly before their iTunes Festival show at London's Roundhouse the roadie wrote:
Apparently Chris [Martin] had started the song the previous night, so it was less than 24 hours old at that point. It was hypnotic in its simplicity, but devastatingly, achingly gorgeous. The final version has lost none of this and is a masterwork of restraint.
It hasn't been crammed with a million ideas and embellishments, Every part is there simply to enhance the emotional impact. I can only predict floods of tears in every quarter.
The roadie then went on to reference another song called 'DLIBYH', which he said "couldn't be more different".
'Mylo Xyloto' has been previewed by the track 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' and a full-scale single, 'Paradise', is expected to premiere shortly.
