Q. Thanks for your excellent work Oracle I wonder if you could clarify has Chris relocated to LA for a while?
How will this affect recording the next album? Will the other guys move out there too or will he commute back to London?
Q. Dear Oracle,
I have a question about two of Coldplay's album covers. For A Rush of Blood, I either see the cover with the band and title written sideways or I see it without any writing at all. For Mylo Xyloto, sometimes it is shown with MX on a plain gray background or I see the one with the colorful background with Mylo Xyloto written out. Wouldn't it be better marketing to have one, universal cover for an album, such as with Parachutes or X&Y?
Thanks for your time!
Q. Am I allowed to name the album that I am making Random Acts..?
Q. Hi Oracle! :)
Okay what does LP6 mean? It's been driving me nuts that I haven't figured it out yet!
And I'm a huge fan of Coldplay, since I was 5 (I'm 13 now), and I would DIE if I got a shoutout from Chris Martin or even better, the whole band! This really isn't just your ordinary fangirl type of thing, believe me.
Q. Hi Oracle!
I have a question: why do the Coldplay's albums contain just 10-11 songs? Though the group record a lot of pieces during the recording... It's a great pity!
Thanks for your answer! I can't wait for the 5th album!!!
Q. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING Q HAS BEEN EDITED BY O.
Is this the truth??
"I think Chris Martin is fooling around everyone about what Coldplay has done for LP5 until now. For example, "SONG TITLE EDITED" is evidently in the album and it's a precise song.
People, these are the only real facts you must know about the new LP:
a) The album is completely recorded since December. Band is still choosing the songs amongst those done and presenting them to EMI to make the final tracklisting.
b) The schedule is that NAME EDITED and/or NAME EDITED will mix the selected songs around March
c) The album will be out in May 2011
Take my words for granted, and keep them for the record, whenever these news will be confirmed."
Q. Who came up with the album cover of Coldplays 2nd album, A Rush of Blood to the Head? It's amazing.
