Ghost Stories: Coldplay's album art goes on sale



By Andrew Irwin 19 November 14



Two years ago Coldplay raised more than £610,000 for charity by selling off the album art from Mylo Xyloto. And now, they're at it again. From 4 December, Coldplay, together with the artist Mila Fürstová, will reveal the original artwork from this year's album, Ghost Stories, in a public exhibition.
The works capture the airy, dream-like soundscape of Coldplay's sixth studio album with themes of stars and flight recurring throughout. And now the detailed pieces, created using traditional etching techniques, are available to see first hand. The images are evocative, baroque and complex, and according to Chris Martin, they show "exactly what we were trying to say."
The pieces on show - and on sale - include the artwork from the Ghost Stories album as well as the etchings created for the singles, "Magic", "A Sky Full of Stars" and "True Love". In addition, there will be the unique chance to see sketches that Fürstová made while working on the project.

Once again, the proceeds are going to charity - specifically to Kids Company, an organisation that helps children across the UK. Both the artist and musicians have added their signatures to the original pieces and signed prints are also available. Spectacular artwork, a unique piece of music history and a chance to do some real good. Magic.
Album Artists is open from 4-7 December at 17 Osborn Street, Shoreditch, London E1. albumartists.co.uk

It's going to cost me just under £40 in train fare to go to this! Plus however much the underground will cost me. I have an Oyster card which makes things better. Still, not so sure about going now :S Is anyone coming to the UK from another country for this? x
