"Mylo Xyloto" will be released October 25 in the U.S.

Coldplay has kept anticipation high for their fifth studio album by giving audiences a taste of the new tracks while on tour, including their recent stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago.
 
The band announced the album’s title – Mylo Xyloto -- on their website, with a preview of the album cover art. The album is due out October 24 in the U.K., and October 25 in the U.S.
 
“Hello everybody. We have finished our new album,” the band wrote on a note on their website announcing the title of their new project. “We hope you like it and we hope you are all well.”

The band must have assumed that the public would be baffled by the new title, because the note gives a pronunciation guide: “P.S. it is pronounced 'MY-lo ZY-letoe,’’ they wrote.
 
The record, produced by Daniel Green, Markus Dravs, and Rik Simpson, will be available in digital, CD, and vinyl formats, along with a limited-edition "pop-up album" version which will include a 12″ x 12″ hardback book with graffiti pop-up art created by David A. Carter, vinyl, CD and other exclusive content including photographs, excerpts from the studio diary and the band’s personal notebooks.
 
The next single from the album is called “Paradise” and will come out September 12.
