    Coldplay singer and Gwyneth Paltrow's husband Chris Martin revealed that he purposefully named the band's new album Mylo Xyloto since it was so strange and odd.

    Guitarist Jonny Buckland told New York Times that the band wanted an "un-Googleable" album title, and Martin said that "Music comes from a place we don't know. It sort of comes through the fingers and toes. So we came up with the idea of, what if you had musical digits, like xylo toes." He adds that "Mylo" is "just a great name. For anything."

    Are you going to check out Mylo Zyloto? Would you name your kid that?
