Q.  Dear Oracle, could you tell me who produced the new album, Ghost Stories? I know that Jon Hopkins produced Midnight, but did he also produce the rest of the album? Thanks!

Ghost Stories was a collaborative effort. As you said, Jon produced Midnight, Rik Simpson & Dan Green were of course involved and Paul Epworth also worked on the album. Guy actually did a lot of the production this time round.

Q.  Dear Wise and Magical Oracle,

I was thinking the other day that I'd probably watched the Midnight video more times than the band had! This made me wonder how much input the band have into the making of their videos and how many times they actually DO watch the videos as they're being edited and put together. Are they right in the editing suite making suggestions, or do they agree on a general concept and then let the filmmaker run with it once the filming is over?

The band don't sit in on the editing process, no. They are involved with the concept and storyboard process and obviously the video shoot if they're in it. By the editing stage, they will already have a good idea how the end result will look.

Q.  All knowing Oracle,

What was the location of the Midnight music video? Was it anywhere close to Primrose Hill, or am I completely off?

Completely off, Publius. The Midnight video - directed by Mary Wigmore who also directed The Hardest Part - was shot in Los Angeles.

Q.  I'm glad to hear that the new album will be out in May. I can't wait to hear it.
But I do have a question about the songs that have been released so far form the album. Is Magic the first official song of the new album or is it Midnight? And will there be an official video for Magic?

Midnight is the first official song from Ghost Stories but available via video only and Magic is the first official single. There will be a video so keep your eyes out for that.

Q.  Midnight is amazing! But it sounds like Chris's voice has autotune in some parts. I thought Coldplay doesn't use autotune?

You're getting autotune and vocoders mixed up.
There's an effect on Chris' Midnight vocals but not autotune - it's a vocoder.
The band have never said they don't use autotune but they indeed don't.
