Coldplay Fans Hunt for Lyrics Inside Libraries

coldplayColdplay (pictured, via) launched a library-themed scavenger hunt to reveal the lyrics of the nine songs featured on their forthcoming CD, “Ghost Stories.” The seven-time Grammy Award-winning band left sheets containing the lyrics, handwritten by lead vocalist Chris Martin, in libraries all over the world.

Clues have been shared on the official Coldplay twitter account with the hashtag #lyricshunt. Some of the hiding spots include the NYPL’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building in New York City, the Vasconcelos Library in Mexico City, and the Rikhardinkatu Library in Helsinki. Each one was nestled inside the pages of a book. Thus far, fans have uncovered eight out of nine sheets.

Visit the Coldplay website to view scans of the lyrics sheets. The band unleashed the final clue at 8:08 a.m. EST. They also shared a blurry photo to go with it. We’ve embedded the two tweets below. Where do you think they hid the final sheet? (via The Gothamist)
