Q.  Congratulations for your Webby Award nominations. I have voted for you.
Will we see more interactive videos in the future?

I presume you mean specifically Coldplay, because of Ink. Who knows?
If you mean in general, definitely. Ink isn't the first interactive video and creative, artistic technology is definitely moving in that direction.
I read an article about The Mystery of Woolley Mountain by The Helmholtz Resonators in an online magazine just last weekend. It's a sonic ebook and about as interactive as it gets: book, album, animation...

Q.  Hi, just wondering the Ink single isn't in your Recordings section, it was an official single, right?

I'm only answering this because it is a newly received question and Ink IS in the Recordings section. You may need to clear cache / cookies. Hopefully it will then show up.

Q.  Dear McOracle, Ink is my favourite song EVER, I love everything about it. I was wondering, how can I know if Coldplay are going to release a music video for it?

I'm not sure how you missed the Ink video when you came here to ask me about it. Anyway, it's an interactive video with 300 possible journeys to choose from. That should keep you busy for a while.

Also, just to mention that if you were signed up to our newsletter, you would have received an email about the video last week.

Q.  Hey there Cool, Outstanding, Lovely, Darling, Phenomenal , Legendary, Amazing, Youthful Oracle!

This might be a bit late but, who sings the harmonies in Ink? Will? Guy? Both? Anyway, they are absolutely INKredible! Haha!

And thanks again for giving us our healthy doses of Coldplay!

Stay Yellow,


Flattery will get you everywhere, Rashna. Will sings the backing vocals on Ink (recorded and live). Guy doesn't sing any bvs on his own. He sings with Will & Jonny (for example, Viva, Fix You...)

Q.  You might be bombarded with this question for the next while. Did Chris really get a tatoo as said in Ink.

Chris does have tattoos - as we've discussed here before - but he hasn't got one that says "Together Through Life", no.

Q.  Hello, dear Oracle.
I found this on Youtube and I think it's just beautiful. I was wondering if it is really an Ink preview or just a fake.
Thank you very much :)

It's absolutely NOT Ink - it's a fake. It doesn't sound like Coldplay to me. Certain musicians have a certain style and I hear no resemblance to Chris' piano style here.
I don't know who it is. I have previously given my simple tip of how to spot a fake, Laura. Today it fails me. The Shazam app has no idea who it is either...
