Q.  Oracle,
I can't find Miracles or the lyrics in the Recordings section of the website. I have the same problem with Wish I Was Here. Are they not official releases by the band, or do you just not put soundtrack songs on the recordings section? I'm confused because Atlas is there and Miracles isn't.

Miracles is coming to Recordings but as Wish I was Here isn't a release, it isn't.

Q.  Just back from the movies and I was very surprised to hear the Midnight track on the trailer of Exodus. I knew about Miracles, but was Midnight initially planned to be on that soundtrack? Any other contribution to future productions?

A song being used in a trailer is very different from an original song being written for a film as is the case with Miracles and was with Atlas & Wish I Was Here.
Those are the only tracks written specifically for film soundtracks.

Q.  Do you think we could hear Wish I Was Here with the original vocals from Chris. It's an amazing song.

Thanks.

If such a version exists, it will only be in demo form. This is a collaboration so it was never a Coldplay song before it became what it is. As far as I know, the only song that ever started being performed and heard as a Coldplay song before being recorded and released by anyone else was Gravity (Embrace).
Even when Chris has written or given tracks to other people, I have never heard a version with Chris singing. Lukas (recorded by Natalie Imbruglia) for example, was intended for Viva but I never heard it.

Q.  Hello Oracle, could you clarify something for me please? Is the new song on the Wish I Was Here soundtrack a collab between Coldplay and Chan Marshall or just Chris and Chan? Different websites say different things. Also, when will I be able to hear it? I love hearing new songs from Chris and/or the boys. Thanks!

I was only saying to Anchorman last week how surprised I was that nobody had asked about this song given it was first mentioned in the press over 2 months ago.
I also notice that different sources are saying different things.
Wish I Was Here is a Zach Braff film that looks set to have a great soundtrack. FYI The trailer song is So Now What by The Shins. Chris wrote a song that Chan (a.k.a Cat Power) sings and he provides backing vocals but it's Coldplay and Cat Power.
I haven't heard it yet but Dan Green tells me it's great. Zach Braff said this about it: "It's the title song of the movie. It's one of the most amazing songs ever."
The film is released 18 July. Can't wait!
