Coldplay Announces Lyrics Scavenger Hunt in Libraries Worldwide
The good news? Coldplay fans can read the lyrics to the band’s new album before it hits stores. The bad news? They’ll have to find them, first.
The band announced today (April 28) they will hide handwritten lyric sheets of Ghost Stories from frontman Chris Martin in nine libraries across the world, creating a scavenger hunt for fans to discover.
A series of posts on the band’s page read, “The band have decided to reveal the lyrics for each song from Ghost Stories by hiding them in ghost story books in libraries in nine countries… clues to the exact locations of Chris’s handwritten lyrics will be posted from today here on the Coldplay Twitter using #lyricshunt… One of the nine #lyricshunt envelopes contains a special Golden Ticket, giving the finder a free trip to London to see Coldplay on July 1…
We hope the nine libraries where the lyrics are hidden have been alerted. (-:
