Q. I know this is random but it's pretty important to me! Basically I've always thought I had the same birthday as Viva la Vida (12th June as it says on your website) however on other sites it says the 11th June? Which date is correct? I hope this website is right as it's my favourite album and I love the idea of sharing a birthday with it! Thanks! :)

The Oracle replies:

Oh it all used to be far simpler when all albums were released on Mondays!
VLV was released on different dates in different territories, for example, 11th June in Japan. Here in the UK it was released on the 12th.

That means that today is Viva's birthday! Last week was X&Y's...
