The wait is finally over! Today [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm]’s much-anticipated Mylo Xyloto hits store shelves today (Oct. 24) after one of the biggest runups to an album release in recent memory.
After a month-long blitz of promotion that saw the band criss-crossing the globe, from Glastonbury to L.A., from Live on Letterman to Breakfast with Kevin & Bean, Chris Martin and the guys have finally delivered their new creation into fans’ hands. Click through here to discover the track listing and watch [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] in action performing the new material.
The best way to celebrate the release of Mylo Xyloto (which you can now download here) might be to watch [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm]’s amazing performance on the Live on Letterman webcast program. A month before the album’s release, the band ripped through amazing renditions of new songs including “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” “Paradise” and the title track “Mylo Xyloto.”
Some of the funnier moments of the Mylo Xyloto promo run came during [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm]’s appearance on KROQ‘s Breakfast with Kevin & Bean. Re-live that madness here and find out why getting up at 4am for a radio show makes for a happy & hysterical Chris Martin.
Another key [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] appearance during recent weeks was their interview on the CBS Sunday Morning television program which offered a peek behind the curtain at the making of Mylo Xyloto including a trip to the band’s headquarters in London.
