Coldplay Singer Reveals The Meaning Behind Title Of Their Latest Album

Generally when a band drops a new album there is a track or some sort of explanation as to why they named the C.D. what they named it, maybe a song, or in some cases the band may have named the album after the studio they recorded in.

Then there are the albums that the fans read and the first thought that goes through their heads are WTF? REALLY?!

In most of these cases the band will talk about why they named an album what they did or at the very least fans can google the title and get a pretty good idea of why a C.D. has a certain name.

Think about it, if you are a White Stripes fan you know when you heard “Icky Thump” you wondered… Or what about Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy, both have perfectly logical explanations.

Then think about the latest from Coldplay, Mylo Xyloto, surely more than one fan has wondered what the heck?!

Well now the band has admitted they are starting to regret that move. Friday in an interview on Good Morning America show frontman Chris Martin insisted the group simply “invented two words that you couldn’t even Google” when they named the album.

Now nearly 6 months later the band members are saying they wish they had stuck with a more traditional name because every where they go fans are having a difficult time pronouncing the title.

Martin went on to say “It’s just something that we thought looked really good but everywhere we go  around the world people pronounce it in the most crazy ways and we’re beginning  to regret it now.”

I don’t care if you call it that “qwap fpox zyrpg!” Hey if they can make words up so can I, right?!
