Coldplay Talk New Album, Promise Pronounceable Title

If you resented the quixotic jumble of letters that formed the title of Coldplay‘s last studio album, ‘Mylo Xyloto,’ good news: The band is planning something more straightforward for its next release.

Frontman Chris Martin broke the news during a recent interview with the Australian radio station 2dayfm (via NME), telling the hosts, “The next one we’re releasing is much easier to pronounce.”

Pressed for further details, Martin demurred, saying, “I can’t tell you that,” before looking to guitarist Johnny Buckland for backup. “Can I give a hint?” he asked Buckland, to which his bandmate responded with a simple, “No.”

While fans wait to hear the band’s next collection of new material, they can content themselves with the just-released ‘Live 2012,’ a movie/music package that offers footage and audio of performances from Coldplay’s worldwide tour in support of the chart-topping ‘Mylo Xyloto.’ While it comes less than a decade after the band’s first live compilation, the descriptively titled ‘Live 2003,’ ‘Live 2012′ helps make up for its four-song overlap with the earlier collection by adding an assortment of glimpses at the band’s backstage life, including photos and a Chris Martin studio journal.
