  1. Hi Nancy, I've not been very fine those last days but hope it will get better. I haven't listened to GS so far...

  2. 14 May 2014 / submitted by Martin, United States of America Q. Hello Oracle, I just finished watching the Mylo Xyloto Live Movie and noticed in the credits that there was a 3d management crew for the film. My question is was the film suppose to be in 3d? If so, why was is not? That would have been really amazing to see the movie that way. Thanks Oracle THE ORACLE REPLIES > 3D Management is the name of the band manager's management company; it isn't referring to Live 2012 being a 3 dimensional film.
  3. 14 May 2014 / submitted by Nicholas, United States of America Q. Hello Oracle, Why isn't there a song named after the album Ghost Stories like the rest of the past albums by Coldplay? Thank you THE ORACLE REPLIES > There is no law saying an album must contain a song bearing its name but... in this case my friend, there actually is a track called Ghost Story. You just haven't heard it yet ;-)
  4. 14 May 2014 / submitted by Safy, Egypt Q. Wise Oracle, You replied on May 8th on a question about the band's earnings & how theyare split 40/20/20/20 as Chris mentioned in the Zane Lowe interview. I remember he said afterwards, that everything else is split 25/25/25/25. I am confused, what is split 25% & what is split 40/20/20/20? THE ORACLE REPLIES > In general terms when people talk about spilts, they're referring to songwriting. This means that the publishing spilts are 40/20/20/20. The 25/25/25/25 refers to all other earnings. For example revenue from merch sales, touring
  5. 13 May 2014 / submitted by Kristin , United States of America Q. Dear Orcale, Who sings the very last bit of O? And why is there a long pause inbetween? Love Kristin P.s. Love love love the new album! THE ORACLE REPLIES > The pause after O is leading into a sort of secret track and those vocals are actually Chris' daughter, Apple and her friend Mabel.
  6. 13 May 2014 / submitted by John, United Kingdom Q. I've just listened to the full album on iTunes. Sounds great, but why the lack of the use of drum kit? It's mostly electronic now? THE ORACLE REPLIES > I can only pick up on your keyword ("now"), John. The drumkit that Will plays on this album is mostly electronic - it fits don't you think? It seems the perfect match to me but that's not to say Will won't be thrashing his full kit again.
  7. 13 May 2014 / submitted by Peter, United Kingdom Q. You might be bombarded with this question for the next while. Did Chris really get a tatoo as said in Ink. THE ORACLE REPLIES > Chris does have tattoos - as we've discussed here before - but he hasn't got one that says "Together Through Life", no.
  8. 13 May 2014 / submitted by Valeria, Mexico Q. Dear Oracle: I heard today the full Ghost Stories album and it's amazing!! I was wondering which was the "secret" song played in the concerts (the one that the band asked the crowd not to record or upload to YouTube) ? Thanks THE ORACLE REPLIES > It was two different songs but they weren't secret; it was to avoid bootleg versions turning up online. The iTunes Festival premiered a few of the new album's tracks but any that weren't played there, were kept under wraps as much as possible. The first one to be performed with the request
  9. 12 May 2014 / submitted by Frida, Sweden Q. Who decides the contestant for United Kingdom in Eurovision Song Contest? Have wondered ever since I can remember. THE ORACLE REPLIES > This year our Molly was selected internally by the BBC. That hasn't always been the case and in the past we have had an open vote for some.
  10. 12 May 2014 / submitted by Feike, Netherlands Q. Have the guys ever thought about or being asked to participate at the Eurovision Songcontest for their country? This year and last year, my country has sent big names (Anouk last year and Waylon/Ilse de Lange this year) and both times we made it to the finals. THE ORACLE REPLIES > I'm tempted to answer this with, "over my dead body!" I am too much of a music snob to take this seriously. It's all fun to me but I hope they never participate. I just checked as I recall answering questions about Eurovision before. It turns out that we didn't
  11. ^^ with the first 2 tickets which are early entrance, 19:00 (7pm) seems to be the time 2 people can enter. your 2 other tickets are also for standing but with a regular entrance at 20:00 (8pm) if you have more tickets than you need, I would be glad to buy 2 from you as I wasn't lucky on Monday... edit :the mail is not very clear but the money you paid fits with 2 early entrance tickets.
  12. 11 May 2014 / submitted by Anon, United Kingdom Q. TEAM ORACLE QUESTION #167 I recently broke up with my ex. I can't even count the number of time we've broken up, but it was an intense, passionate, on and off for the last two years. I know why I kept going back, but I also know why I shouldn't/deserve more. How do you know when you're supposed to keep trying because that's what love is and when you're supposed to let go because love shouldn't be that difficult? THE ORACLE REPLIES > Sometimes we repeat cycles out of habit, out of love, out of fear or because we simply don't know how to

  14. 9 May 2014 / submitted by S, Philippines Q. Hi Oracle! So I have this theory... Phil & Anchorman are one & the same. Any plot twist (aka your thoughts) on this? P.S. Show Manila some love. :( We've been feeling left out. Forever waiting. :( THE ORACLE REPLIES > No. Here on the website you're either reading posts by Anchorman or blogs by Roadie #42 or - as you're here - answers by me. Phil tweets and signs off PH so that's how you'll spot him. Anchorman follows tweets with A and I can assure you A and PH are not one and the same. Ps if you're here looking for Team O
