Q. Hey Oracle,
I realised that Coldplay seem to hire artists to create the artwork for their albums and I was wondering if they ever created art between themselves?
Thank you!
Millie:)


The Oracle replies:

I prefer the word commission because sometimes the band are shown / see artwork they love and then approach the artist to work with them.
They have also created their own artwork. For example, the Parachutes album cover was their last minute creation and some of the Viva artwork - which you can find on the tour programme cover.
