Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Coldplay - New CD: Mylo Xyloto
Coldplay’s fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto (pronounced my-lo zy-letoe), will be released on 24 October 2011. Produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green, Rik Simpson with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno, Mylo Xyloto follows 2008’s Viva La Vida, which charted at No. 1 in 36 countries, including the UK and USA. Mylo Xyloto will be released in digital, CD and vinyl formats. The 180-gram vinyl edition will include a 12” x 36” poster. A special limited edition Pop-Up Album version will also be available, which will include a 12" x 12" hardback book containing graffiti pop-up art designed by David A. Carter, vinyl, CD and exclusive content including photographs, excerpts from the studio diary and the band's personal notebooks. The “reversible” cover art was just revealed at www.coldplay.com. Half of the CDs will be packaged with the full color artwork as the cover while the other 50% will have the CD booklet flipped, showing the silver initials “M X” via a die-cut sheet placed over the color image. Paradise, the follow-up to Coldplay’s current single, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, will be released as a commercial single on S12 eptember, the same day it goes to radio. The band will be touring South Africa for the first time ever in October. There are some tickets still left at Computitcket - go get one now!
