Viva Le Coldplay or Free Song For All Their Fans

Want a free, new Coldplay song? Well, go to Coldplay's website ( right now, and this is what you'll see:

Click on the 'Song' button, register your email and country code, and you can download a NEW Coldplay song called VIOLET HILL, from their upcoming new album 'Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends'. No, I have no idea why they named it that either.

Anyway, there's more. Click on 'Artwork', and this is what you'll get.

Man, that is one sucky album cover.

But at least the song Violet Hill is pretty good. At first listen, it's nothing like anything in the past two albums, and is actually pretty catchy too. After a couple more listens you do catch the distinct Coldplay trademarks in the song. And based on that song, I think my enthusiasm for the new album just went up a notch. Or maybe half a notch.

Wow, first Mrs. Chris Martin turns in a decently hot performance in Iron Man, now Chris Martin himself actually puts some decent vocals in a decent song without overloading it with his usual falsettos... What next, Apple to come up with her own album of kiddy songs?
