Coldplay: 'Our next album title will be pronounceable'
Front man Chris Martin and guitarist Jonny Buckland hint that they've already decided on a title
Coldplay have said that their next album will have a pronounceable title – unlike the last one.
The band's last album, 'Mylo Xyloto', caused a stir as many fans were confused by the title. They named their fifth studio effort after "two words that you couldn't even Google".
However, speaking about the difficulty people had with pronouncing the title, singer Chris Martin told Australian radio station 2dayfm: "The next one we're releasing is much easier to pronounce."
When pushed by presenters Kyle and Jackie O to reveal if they had come up with a name for their sixth studio album, Martin said, "I can't tell you that," before turning to guitarist Jonny Buckland and asking, "Can I give a hint?" Buckland shook his head and said, "No".
Meanwhile, Coldplay released their new concert film Live 2012 yesterday (November 19). The DVD, Blu-Ray and CD also features an 'interactive live e-book', described in the marketing blurb as "an in-depth and interactive audio-visual companion piece to Live 2012," and set to feature photographs, videos, Chris Martin's studio journal and more.
