-------------------------------------------

I SHOULD Be So Lucky . . . well, I was by being the first journalist in the WORLD to hear the new track by mega music combo, KYL-DPLAY.

http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/multimedia/archive/00017/kylie280_17386a.jpg

That’s right, Pop royalty KYLIE MINOGUE and COLDPLAY have teamed up to record a charity song together to raise money for AIDS victims.

The track, called Lhuna, is brilliant — it combines Kylie’s seriously sexy voice with the haunting tones of CHRIS MARTIN. The results are spectacular.

Last night, a music insider told me: “This is the THE duet of the year — you don’t get bigger than Kylie and Coldplay. It’s taken a number of weeks but they finally finished the track last week.

“It’s something they’re very proud of because it’s being released with the soul aim of raising money for a cause that is very close to their hearts.”

Download Lhuna exclusively from new music service Red Wire tomorrow (World AIDS Day). Some of the proceeds are donated to those with HIV in Africa.

It’s a great tune for a great cause, so go log on to red.msn.com or redwire.com.

Holy hell, I did read in another thread they were going to release a new song, but I didn't think it'd be freaking Lhuna.

Note to Coldplay: Stop releasing so many awesome new songs so close together. It will only make the down period before Album 5 even more painful.

anniea89
30-11-2008, 09:50 AM
There's two possibilites here:
1) Kylie is starting her Oz tour here in less than two weeks. She could do it solo.
2) She might stay here until early March and show up at a Melb gig (she usually stays for Christmas and then some but early march might be pushing it).

iPsy

Does anyone know if the song was written by Coldplay feat. Kyle? Or was it a joint collaboration at the writing stage as well?

anniea89
30-11-2008, 09:59 AM
My guess is they wrote it, with maybe her in mind to sing on it.

anniea89

Gah yes! I was hoping on their last tour that they would put Can't Get You Out of My Head into their setlist, but it only made an appearance at the Melb shows :(

It sucks that it probably won't be elgiible to chart.

The Kylie / Coldplay duet ‘Lhuna’, which Chris Martin has been raving about, finally sees its release, on World AIDS Day (1st December). The song will be available via (RED)'s new digital music magazine, (RED)WIRE. When you sign up, you'll receive exclusive (DRM-free) music from the world's greatest artists on a weekly basis, and people living with HIV in Africa will get the medicine they need to stay alive.

(RED) was created by Bono and Bobby Shriver to raise awareness and money for The Global Fund by teaming up with the world's most iconic brands to produce (PRODUCT) RED-branded products. Half the fee of (RED)WIRE will go the Global Fund, through which (RED) provides AIDS medicines for women and children. Most of the remainder goes to artist royalties.

Take me to Red(Wire); launches Monday December 1st 2008 (http://www.joinredwire.com/)

Thanks for asking us to let you know when to sign up for (RED)WIRE.

We'll send you an email on December 1st when it's ready for you.

Meanwhile, you can help others get involved and increase your impact, by recommending (RED)WIRE to your friends. Once we launch, every five (RED)WIRE members will generate enough money, every month, to help keep one person living with HIV in Africa alive. You get four friends involved and create change through musical discovery.

So keep December 1st marked on your calendar - we've got a party planned.

Boooo! It's not available at all in Canada:

(RED)WIRE is not yet available in Canada, but according to the PR company, "details are forthcoming about the Canada launch." However, if you are not in Canada, sign up here (http://www.redwire.com/) to receive the first two issues of (RED)WIRE free. http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/theampersand/archive/2008/11/26/red-wire-new-online-music-magazine-from-bono-s-project-red-to-launch-december-1.aspx

That's why the site still doesn't exist for me. :sick: :cry:

The magazine will require a $5 (US) subscription fee. Artists are paid for their contributions, but half of the subscription proceeds go directly to The Global Fund. Issues will arrive every Wednesday via a (RED)WIRE player and feature (according to Reuters) "an exclusive song from a major musician, a song from a performer who (RED) aims to showcase, a multimedia piece that could encompass video or photography and a look at how proceeds are benefiting Africans in need. The materials will be downloaded to a custom player and automatically loaded into iTunes."

From the fact sheet, here's "how it works":

For five dollars a month, members will receive a weekly digital music offering including:
• An exclusive song from a major artist.
• A less-well-known song from an artist (RED) wants to showcase.
• A fun or inspiring piece that’s not music—a digital short, some great photography or a reading from artists, actors and others.
• A window into the impact of (RED) dollars at work in Africa

Some of the "major artists" have already recorded songs for the project. The Killers, Elton John and Neil Tennant from The Pet Shop Boys joined forces on the Christmas tune Joseph, Better You Than Me. John Legend recorded a cover of Bob Marley's Redemption Song. And U2, recorded their contribution " just last Wednesday".

(RED)WIRE founder Don MacKinnon (former music VP at Starbucks) told Billboard he expects another big name collaborator:

rtists are already saying, 'I want to give you a track for those people who brought friends in. That's the biggest idea: using social networking to actually change the world in a unique way..I had a meeting with Jay-Z, and he wants to talk about artists to be featured in that spotlight slot. Big artists may curate an issue. The whole goal was to create a creative platform. When somebody says, 'I do all this photography and I want to put it in as an extra,' that's when I go, this is going to be really cool."

BUT if u suscribed BEFORE december 1st, you have 2 free songs from MAJOR artists!

yeah the fact is you're paying five dollars a week for two songs. One from a major artist that you MIGHT be into, and then one from an unknown artist that you MIGHT enjoy. I would gladly pay a few dollars for a new Coldplay song, but i don't think i'd like to overpay for other mediocre material from different bands.

This Redwire is a bunch of shit to me!!! It uses Amazon as its payment carrier and after I entered my country in the sign up process it goes straight to the main Amazon site and I cant even pay for the membership cos it does not list my UK debit card(Maestro) as a payment method!!!!! Your would think that it would take UK people to the UK Amazon site!!!!!

So, thats out for me!! I will just wait until Lhuna appears on here for downloading!!!!:D:D:D:D
