Coldplay’s hotly anticipated fifth studio album finally has a name and release date. Bandmates Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion grace the cover of the latest issue of Billboard and share some big details about the record — named Mylo Xyloto!
The band revealed to the magazine that Mylo Xyloto will be released in the United States on Oct. 25!
Chris also dished to the magazine about all the pressure surrounding the release of a new record.
“The honest answer is, I want anyone who spends money on us to be really pleased with their purchase,” he says. “If you want to speak purely? How I really feel is, we don’t make it for us. We don’t make it to sell millions. We don’t make it to answer critics.”
Chris adds: “We make it so that if you’re in a store and you buy our record, or a ticket — like a good sandwich — you go, ‘That’s good!’ That’s all it is. And I look to my heroes on both record and live and I think that the people I like the most are the people that are really working for their audience.”
We bet Chris’s wife Gwyneth Paltrow is happy with the big album news.
She recently quipped on Twitter: “Who do I have to bang to get an advance copy of the new @coldplay album? I mean, really.”
