Coldplay – Mylo Xyloto

Mylo Xyloto cover

Album coldplay terbaru Mylo Xyloto secara resmi di rilis 24 Oktober kemarin. Ahaha, pantesan aja gw nyari album mereka sekitar September 2011 belum keluar, ternyata emang belum resmi di release ya walaupun Single Every teardrop is waterfall mereka sudah beredar lama mungkin sejak Juli-Agustus. Akhirnya nemu juga album mereka yang terbaru beberapa hari yang lalu. Enjoy the album deh.

Ini cuplikan berita dari suara merdeka :

Chris Martin kembali bicara tentang album baru Coldplay, Mylo Xyloto. Jika sebelumnya Martin mengatakan Mylo Xyloto bisa jadi album terakhir bandnya, kini frontman band asal London itu mengungkapkan bahwa album ke lima Coldplay ini terinspirasi dari krisis ekonomi global.

Bahkan, kepada sejumlah media, pria siempunya nama Christopher Anthony John Martin itu mengaku marah terhadap situasi krisis yang secara tidak langsung juga berpengaruh pada album barunya. Kemarahan tersebut, secara khusus, tertuju pada orang-orang yang bertanggungjawab atas resesi global akhir-akhir ini

“Resesi global jelas berpengaruh pada album kali ini. Dan perasaan marah kami tertuju pada orang-orang yang menyebabkan semua ini (krisis global) dan membuat setiap umat manusia benar-benar merasa memiliki segudang masalah,” terang Martin kepada Spin.

Martin pun menambahkan bahwa sebagian khalayak salah mengerti tentang bandnya selama ini. “Sebagian kecil orang salah persepsi tentang band kami yang dianggap hanya memikirkan urusan komersial saja. Mereka mempertanyakan jiwa (bermusik) Coldplay, padahal kami telah menunjukkannya selama ini,” tambah vokalis yang mendukung gerakan “Occupy Wall Street”, sebagaimana dilansir Rolling Stone, Rabu (2/11).

Minggu lalu, Martin pun mengakui bahwa merilis Mylo Xyloto membuatnya merasa seperti bunuh diri. Hal ini dia takutkan sebagaimana dirinya takut akan potensi serangan balik dari para penggemar mereka atas materi-materi di album ini, mengingat sebagian besar lagu ini ditulis berdasarkan sikap Coldplay terhadap krisis global.

Mylo Xyloto sendiri dirilis pada 24 Oktober lalu dan diproduseri oleh Markus Dravs, Daniel Green, dan Rik Simpson, serta digarap pula oleh produser legendaris Brian Eno. Album tersebut telah dirilis dalam format digital, CD, dan piringan hitam. Dua single dalam album ini pun telah dirilis. Diantaranya “Every Teardrop is A Waterfall” dan “Paradise” yang saat ini menduduki nomor 15 pada tangga lagu Billboard Hot 100.

What? album terakhir? jangan dong ah, sudah cukup kami kehilangan Amy Winehouse, Oasis, dan Linkin Park (Khusus LP, I don’t recognize them anymore, they have gone too much soft). Btw, gw penasaran banget sama arti mylo xyloto, begitu gw google didapati artikel berikut dari

During an interview with The Sun (UK newspaper) on 12th September 2011, Chris Martin discussed the meaning of the album title, Mylo Xyloto. Quoting The Sun: It is pronounced My-low Zy-letoe… and even the lads admit the title doesn’t mean anything. Chris says: “At the moment it seems a bit ridiculous and I accept that. “Something about it feels quite fresh. The title doesn’t have any other meaning. I think we’re a band with a lot of history now so it’s nice to come up with something that doesn’t have any history at all. We’ve had that title for about two years on a board and any other potential titles had to be written next to it. Other ones made more sense but we just liked this one, that’s all we can defend it with.”

Guitarist Jonny jokes that the process of finding a title was “like naming a child”. And Chris — dad to daughter Apple, seven, and son Moses, five — admits he has received a fair bit of banter about his name choices. He says: “I’ve had trouble with that too. I don’t regret that either. It’s just a feeling of a fresh start.”[5] 

Before that interview not much was revealed at the time about the exact meaning of Mylo Xyloto, although there were developments from Coldplay’s TV appearance in Paris (on 9th September 2011) which will be televised in October 2011. According to Coldplayers, the band discussed the meaning of Mylo Xyloto, Coldplayer Lu’kaa saying: “Yesterday in an interview in the french TV show Chris explained that Mylo Xyloto was just an imaginary language, with two words: Mylo and Xyloto. It’s about creating a now word, from nothing, kind of like Google. How I know it? Well I was there!”

For those of you (most) still trying to figure out the possibly meaning behind this title following The Oracle’s confirmation that the title was not randomly made up without meaning, it’s a little unclear — though Latin derivations of “Mylo” tend to suggest that it is about something falling apart. (Meanwhile, “Xyloto” has been used to refer to a family of insects.) Could this be some sort of statement meant to suggest people coming together in the midst of what are difficult times for the world? Until Coldplay speak out about it themselves, we will probably not know for sure. Perhaps there is a tie with the colorful art, which seems to indicate there’s beauty in destruction which seems a fitting theme for the darker times we live in.[6]

Even The Oracle remained tight lipped on the answer, recently saying: “This could win the prize for the most asked question in the shortest space of time! All I will say is that if the band are asked it as many times as I have been asked, an answer will appear soon enough! I’d rather not be the revealer on this occasion. I will dispel a couple of suggestions I received though. It’s not been randomly made up with no meaning at all nor is it a foreign language. Everyone has been so patient so far with all the teasing that has been going on during the past 3 months so I’m sure we can hang on a little longer…” (August 15th).[7]

Ok I know this might sound a bit far out, but here are my thoughts. I think Mylo Xyloto might be an alien, for various reasons: 1- Aliens, U.F.O., stand to play a big part in the story of MX. I think they are going to be the good guys (light blinking to to tell me it´s alright) and will maybe help the two main protagonists in the end (hopeful transmissions). They might possibly end up flying away with the aliens in the end (up with the birds); 2- It would also tie in with Moving To Mars. Maybe it was not a metaphor at all. Maybe it is about the protagonists moving away from planet earth, after everything has gone up in flames; 3- It would explain the weird name Xyloto, which would be a good extraterrestrial name… I definitely hope there is nothing about alien abductions (scary!) hehe I still think the aliens are friendly and good. I interpret that sentence as just simply meaning that a sign came from outer space to let our heroes know that help is on its way and everything is gonna be alright. [thanks valypan][8]

This from MTV[9] : “Not only does it sound like a clothing-optional beach in the Greek Isles (or a nasty viral disease,) but, because it is largely inscrutable, it also inspires the inner etymologist within me. What, exactly, is the language of origin (Latin?) Googling it just brings up lots of Coldplay Web sites. How, precisely, is it pronounced? (Oh, just scanning the press release now, and apparently it’s “my-lo zy-letoe.”) And, since we’re on the subject, just how many anagrams can you pull from its 10 letters? Of course, it bears mention that whenever you’re talking about pronunciation and anagrams, you know you’re in the presence of true titular greatness. So, after spending some serious time with a pen and a piece of paper, here’s every possible anagrammatic combination I can think of. The word “Ox” comes up a lot. For whatever reason, I’d like to think that makes Chris Martin happy.”

Pesan sponsor : Berhubung besok mau Idul Adha, gue duluin aja deh. Selamat Idul Adha bagi yang merayakannya.
