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 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.
Clues to each sheet’s location will be dispensed onColdplay’s Twitter account. Once a page is found, a photo of it will be uploaded for others to see.
Additionally, one of the envelopes containing the lyrics also includes a ticket for a free trip to London to see the band’s July 1 performance at the Royal Albert Hall.
One lyric sheet has already been found in Mexico City, containing the lyrics to lead single “Magic”.
