Coldplay have promised their next album title will be more easily pronounceable, unlike their previous release "Mylo Xyloto".
In March, frontman Chris Martin admitted their last album title confused fans and made it difficult to search on Google.
"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," he said at the time.
Now Martin says the new album will be much easier on the tongue, but when pressed by radio station 2dayfm he wouldn't reveal the new name. "I can't tell you that," he said before asking bandmate Jonny Buckland, "Can I give a hint?" According to NME, Buckland shook his head and said, "No".
Meanwhile, Coldplay have released a brand new concert film called "Live 2012" on DVD and Blu-ray, also available as an audio CD. It includes photos, additional videos, Chris Martin's studio journal and more.
News of a new album will relieve fans who heard in September that the band would take a year off while their frontman relocates to LA to be with his wife Gwyneth Paltrow.
