ANNOUNCEMENTS/NEWS

 

The biggest news of September was delivered by Phil.

Mylo Xyloto (My-low Zy-le-toe) was finished! Coldplay.com posted the back of the CD containing the track listing and "icons" relating to each song.

_________

The Sun reported that Rihanna would be featured on track Princess of China. Chris told them "The album is designed as a whole piece. It has boy and girl lead characters and top of our list for the girl part was Rihanna... but it took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her.

 

"We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, 'Do you think there's any chance?' I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it. She has such an amazing voice and it's so different to mine. When the vocal happened I thought 'Wow, you sound different' but I think that's also because she was singing a different song to what we are used to hearing from her and it is written by a bloke from Devon."

________

Named Festival Headliner of the Year by BBC6. Will spoke with Steve Lamacq about playing the festivals.

Playing festivals gave the band "...a chance to win people over. But there's also a strong possibility that people have already made their mind up about you," he added, "and no matter how well you play they're not going to be happy about it."

 

He admitted that playing big shows and music festivals gave him anxiety dreams. "They took the place of the 'I'm late for an exam' dreams," he told Steve Lamacq. "The whole band come on... and then they walk off and I'm left carrying the can, just playing a drum solo. Awful."

:drummer:
