Q. Hi Oracle! :) So I was looking around on iTunes and I found this. It's by a band called Mylo Xyloto, and it was released before Coldplay's album Mylo Xyloto was released.
There is also an album by that band. I was just wondering if this has anything to do with Coldplay.
Thanks so much! :)

The Oracle replies:

Strange that there is no artwork, no information and no band photo.
This has nothing to do with Coldplay at all and I urge you not to buy that single (1'03!) or album as I suspect it's not going to be what you think.

Firstly Mylo Xyloto didn't exist until the band came up with the name. Mylo may be a familiar name but Xyloto is original.
Secondly, the "artist" could have changed the details after MX came out but I assure you, that it is not legitimate at all.

They have a page on another site and the "album" is dodgy live recordings and video clips.
Stay well clear and I'll investigate further.
