Coldplay single preview
Worldwide first play next week
24 Apr 2008 - Coldplay have given the go ahead for the world preview of their new single next week.
Violet Hill is taken from their forthcoming highly anticipated fourth album Viva La Vida and will be given it's first airplay on Tuesday at midday.
The new album, the follow up to 2005's X&Y, is due out mid-June.
The English alternative name of the project is Death and All His Friends and includes 10 tracks produced by Grammy-winning producer and Roxy Music impresario Brian Eno.
This album will be Eno's first collaboration with Coldplay
When Coldplay announced a return to the studio last year, Chris Martin said the upcoming album would see the band strike out in a new creative direction, hence inviting Eno into the studio, and would also include one song that he described as "genius," a tune "everybody has to hear."
Tune in to George Lamb's show on 6 Music on 29 April to hear it.
Here is the full track list:
Life in Technicolor Cemeteries of London
Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love
Viva la Vida
Death and All His Friends
