Coldplay has hidden lyrics from the songs of its upcoming Ghost Stories album in libraries around the world as part of a scavenger hunt from fans. May 16 is the album release date.
The band is giving clues to the location of the lyrics, which are handwritten by singer Chris Martin, on its official twitter account twitter.com/coldplay, using the hashtag #lyricshunt.
One of the hidden envelopes also contains a special Golden Ticket, giving the finder two tickets to Coldplay’s concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on July 1.
Lyrics have so far been found in libraries in Barcelona, Helsinki, Mexico City and Singapore. The libraries aren’t all in cities, but they include capitals, as well as smaller towns.
