To promote the new Coldplay album, the band is sending their fans on an international treasure hunt to find the handwritten lyrics for Ghost Stories. The scavenger hunt for the words to their nine new songs begins with a library in Mexico City. The Coldplay song lyrics will be found hidden in horror novels in various libraries worldwide.
Yesterday Coldplay sent a hint via Twitter, "Search for Charlie D's festive spirits en español." A clever fan found the lyrics to Magic by Coldplay in Dickens's 'A Christmas Carol' at Vasconcelos library. The other eight songs could be found anywhere on the planet from country capitals to towns boasting populations of less than 100,000.
The new Coldplay album Ghost Stories is coming out May 16th and features the new single Magic.
