[Coldplay] Mylo Xyloto トラックリスト+リアーナ

予想以上に曲目多くてびっくり。

tracklisting

二つの部分にわかれてるのかな? なんとなくX&Y臭が。

 

Mylo Xyloto / ライヴでやってるMXは一部だよね?

Hurts Like Heaven / ライヴ音源のバッキングトラックを抜き出したもの。すごいエフェクト...

Paradise / ライヴで聞いたら印象変わるかな。

Charlie Brown / スタジオバージョンが1分ほどSkyのCMで聞けます。

Us Against The World / これ聞くとフジのMC思い出して泣ける。(早くレポ書け)

M.M.I.X.

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall / これラストかと思ってた。

Major Minus / だから目こわい。

U.F.O.

Princess of China / リアーナとのデュエット。

Up In Flames / 近々ライヴで聞けそうで楽しみ♪

A Hopeful Transmission

Don't Let It Break Your Heart / これもリハーサルしてたみたいですね。

Up With The Birds


国内盤は10月19日に先行発売、そしてボーナストラックが付くそうで、「いつもいつもなんで日本だけ?もう日本嫌ーい!」なんて言われてて笑いましたが、他のアーティストでもそういうこと多いよね。

ボーナストラックは嬉しいけど、アルバムの流れを壊すようなものもあって、実はあんまり好きじゃない。コンセプトアルバムなら特に。


以下、Sunのインタビューから抜粋。自分用メモ。

Rihanna’s amazing on our new album... but it took me ages to dare ask her — says Coldplay singer Chris Martin


Chris, 34, said: "The album is designed as a whole piece. It has boy and girl lead characters and top of our list for the girl part was Rihanna... but it took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her.

"We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, 'Do you think there's any chance?' I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it.

"She has such an amazing voice and it's so different to mine. When the vocal happened I thought 'Wow, you sound different' but I think that's also because she was singing a different song to what we are used to hearing from her and it is written by a bloke from Devon."

I was very Hugh Grant-like

それにしても、なぜリアーナ・・・。いや、別に嫌いじゃないんだけど。
それにMaroon 5とのコラボとか結構好きでしたけど、でもこの組み合わせは全然違和感ないじゃん。Coldplayとリアーナて。不安すぎて、なんかめちゃくちゃ楽しみになってきたよ(・∀・)

まぁ聞いてないうちからあれこれ言うのもなんなので、クリスの「彼女のいつもの声じゃないみたい」とか、Oracleの「ライヴバージョンよりずっとすばらしい」って言葉を信じて、ドキドキしながら待つことにします。
 


Chris said: "We're never going to be as good as Take That but that's OK. We're too old to worry about that now."

And using a footballing analogy, Chris lavished praise on the manband's Gary Barlow. He said: "Gary's like the captain of music — the John Terry of English music.

"It's different for us. We're like one of those players that signs for a club in Italy — we're not necessarily as popular at home as we are elsewhere. But Gary's definitely the number one."

ゲイリー・バーロウはジョン・テリーで、コールドプレイはイタリアのクラブと契約した選手みたいなもんだそうです?


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."

タイトルに他に意味はないってOracleが言ってたことと違ーう。(よね?)
フランスのテレビショーの収録に参加した方によると、クリスはそこでもMylo Xylotoはただの想像上の新しい言葉と言っていたようですが。



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."


Speaking of the passion invested in Mylo Xyloto, Jonny said: "We want to do everything to the absolute maximum, whether it's playing live or recording. This could be our final chance. There's no such thing as 'established', you're still fragile. One s*** record and you're finished."

Chris added: "We're getting to the age where you've got to deliver or quit. Just because we were popular then, doesn't mean we are now.

"It would be great to not have it in the bargain bins by the Thursday of the week of release.

"Anyone who buys the album will really like it, except if they really don't want to like it. Then they'll have to wait a year and then admit they like it.

"The thing you have to accept in return for having very loyal fans is you have a lot of other fans that want to kill you. And that's OK. It's hard to accept at first but after a while you have to be comfortable with it."


And for all his love of Take That, Chris insists none of them plan to "do a Robbie" and go solo.

He said: "We're all on the same side and we're lucky because not every band has that. But our main focus is making our band as good as it can be.

"We love what we do and we're grateful we're allowed to do it. If we didn't have each other we wouldn't be able to do it.

"We've seen so many bands where they have changed a person or someone's thought they wanted to do something different and it just f***s the whole thing up. We really don't want that."
