Interesting facts and trivia about Paradise. By Songfacts®.

This is the second single from Coldplay's fifth album Mylo Xyloto. The single was shipped to radio on September 12, 2011 and debuted that day at 7:50am on BBC Radio 1's Chris Moyles Show.

The song finds Martin singing of a young girl's dashed hopes and dreams of paradise. The Coldplay frontman told Billboard magazine that Mylo Xyloto is a concept album, which is, "loosely a kind of romance in an oppressive environment." This song appears be some sort of sequel to the previous single, "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," whose title is even included in "Paradise"'s lyrics.

The song finds Martin taking a narrator role, which he told Billboard was influenced by listening to Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan.
