Q.  Hi Oracle! I just recently flew on an Air Canada flight and they were showing the Ghost Stories live concert which was awesome. I noticed however that the upcoming CD/DVD doesn't include non-Ghost Stories tracks such as Clocks, Viva and others that were shown in the concert on the flight.. Do you know if they'll be releasing a full concert version later on? Thanks for your time! Cheers! Gareth

No. The TV special that was aired may be a slightly different version but the DVD that's been released is the only one planned - without the non-Ghost Stories tracks.

Q.  What did Madeon help in producing Always in my Head ?

When Chris was interviewed back in April, he revealed that Madeon suggested / came up with the final sound we hear on the track.

Q.  What amp is it that Jonny is using on this Ghost Stories tour? It's different from his dual DeVilles.

Well spotted - we went a bit minimal on this run cos of the smaller venues. Jonny's onstage amp is a vintage Silvertone Twin Twelve but most of what you're hearing is a Kemper Amp Profiler, set to a custom patch. MMcG.

Q.  Will the new recording of the Ghost Story Live 2044 concert tournee also be available on vinyl or only on CD/DVD?

I'm loving the typo! 2044 is a long way into the future...
Ghost Stories Live 2014 is a live film / album release - as you know - but the album is only available on CD.

Q.  Hi, dear Oracle. Watching again and again the Ghost Stories TV Special I noticed that the custom built theatre looks very similar to one that that appears in the Michael Jackson video Hold My Hand, Is it the same?

I'm confused. Looking at the official video for Hold My Hand, I can't work out where you see the similarity. Michael's video was filmed in airship hangars (plus concert footage etc.) and Coldplay's was a purpose built amphitheatre in a soundstage. They're not the same albeit large vacuous spaces.

Q.  Hi Oracle!
I've noticed something a bit strange on the banner for Ghost Stories on iTunes - Chris' face seems to be blurred or at least not focused by the camera when the photo was taken. Is there a reason for this? Was it done on purpose for Guy, Jonny and Will to stand out?

I think they all look a little out of focus. It's just the way the photo turned out - probably because it was taken with little lighting. Incidentally, that photo was taken by Phil on his iPhone.

Q.  Hey there
My question is why did the band record Ghost Stories in Guy's home not in the bakery? Do they still own there?

The band still write & record at The Bakery (& Beehive) but not all the time.
Ghost Stories wasn't recorded at Guy's house; some parts were but not the whole album. Some of it was recorded in London, some in the U.S...

Q.  Hi. I just love the album art for Ghost Stories created by Mila Furstova. I believe that it really compliments the album and is inspirational. I have read that this website offers a larger digital version of the artwork with the ability of magnify the contents more thoroughly. But I have not been able to find it so I would really appreciate if team oracle could help me. Thanks

Team Oracle is a separate thing. There is one Oracle - me & the Team Oracle refers to any contributors on a Friday.
Anyway, when the new look website was revealed, we had the album's artwork on the landing page. You can find the hi-res image here where you can indeed zoom in to magnify.

Q.  Dear O,
Now that the scheduled gigs are over, can we say that the Ghost Stories Era is over? Should we wait for the next one or there are still things coming from GS?
Thank You!

Let's not be too hasty, the ASFOS E.P was only out on Sunday! The tour may be over but the era isn't.

Q.  Hi Oracle! Could you tell me what are those videos that Coldplay have been posting on YouTube (True Love, Ink, Another's Arms) and why are they only about 1:30 long? Are they all going to be singles?

I'm not sure if you know but the week before Ghost Stories came out, the album was available to stream. It was accompanied by Truck Animation's full-length animation of Mila Furstova's artwork.
These videos are snippets from that. All are songs from the album - not singles.
