Issue 25: Paradise by Coldplay
Today is the release date for Coldplay's brand new album, Mylo Xyloto. To be perfectly honest, it's one of the few albums that I'm going out of my way to pick up a hard copy of this year because I'm just that pumped about it!
The single, Paradise embodies that signature Coldplay sound; ambient, driving, enthusiastic, thoughtful, poetic. It, along with Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, have been perfect lead ins to what is sure to be another monumental album for the group. It's been a while since I've been this charged about a release date, but it feels good to be so excited.
When Viva la Vida was released in 2008 it felt significant because I had just started working with Stream Media (had really just got out of university) and went with my friend Julie to pick up the album. In 2005 I remember going to get X&Y after listening to it constantly while I was driving around on my forklift as SF Scotts - a summer job I had between semesters at film school. The stories continue, but I feel like I can remember going to get every Coldplay album and what I had going on at the time.
This is going to be a great week!
