    Rolling Stone have been behind the scenes with Coldplay as they record their fourth album. They have released more details on new track titles, including a synopsis of various tracks. But which excites you most?

    "Violet Hill": One of the strongest of the new songs, the band is considering giving it away as a special promotion in coming weeks and then leaving it off the album. Opening with a jagged distorted guitar riff, the song announces a new template: The stalking, bluesy beat fits nicely with Martin's earthy vocals and plaintive lyrics: "If you love me, won't you let me know?"

    "42": The fact that the band is considering this song as the album's first real single underlines how far they're willing to a stray from their formula: It's an elaborate three-part piece, with swirling pianos, strings and beat loops that build to an uptempo climax, with some seriously stoner lyrics: "Those who are dead are not dead/They're just living in my head."

    "Yes": Here, Martin's vocals take center stage like never before: Sounding more aggressive and strong than ever, they sit on top of an irresistible North African string-and-tablas arrangement and ache more convincingly than all the lilting falsetto in the world: "If you'd only, if you'd only say 'Yes'/I'm just so tired of this loneliness." It's the band's freshest song since "Parachutes."

    "Death and All His Friends": A straight-up rock tune with a riff that sounds ripped from the Doobie Brothers, piano, and, in the last section, flute.

    "Cemetaries of London": Notice the thematic pattern emerging from the title and lyrics? This one, with an electro loop and hand claps, doesn't sound as glum as its title portends.

    "Life in Technicolor": Acoustic-guitar driven and jangly, this is one of the few tracks that seems built from the Coldplay template of songs like "Don?t Panic," only a bit more, well, panicked: "Baby it's a violent world," Martin sings.

    "Chinese Sleep Chant": Opening with a jagged guitar riff, the song quickly settles into a propulsive dance-track loop with low-mixed, angelic vocals.

    "Strawberry Swing": This is one of several potential album cuts with Afro-pop and high-life influences: Here, distortion-free finger-picked guitars which sound straight out of Mali mix with a heavy bassline and psychedelic synths. "My Mum comes from Zimbabwe, so I spent a lot of time there," says Martin. "I used to work in a studio where people played that."

    "Reign of Love": A lovely layered composition of piano, bass and organ that backs fairytale lyrics.

    Violet Hill. It was my favourite track name from the beggining and it sounds the most pormosing of the lot.

    42 if it will really have this line:

    "Those who are dead are not dead/They're just living in my head."

    if so, definitelly i think that this song will mean a lot for me

    All them sound so interesting.... (is me or there are new titles here?)
    no rompas el silencio si no es para mejorarlo.

    nadie me dirá que jamás alcanzaré la cima que yo quiero ascender

    life is for living, care to live it fully.

    be back in 2023. (20th anniversary).

    42 for me too, I like the sound of the "elaborate three part with swirling pianos"

    erm, i'm having a hard time deciding between 42 and yes...42 sounds great overall, especially with that lyric (i LOVE it), but yes talks about stronger vocals than ever before, and one of my hopes for this album was that chris would get to the vocal level and strength and energy of shiver again (because i count that as his best vocal work to date)...

    ah, screw it, i'm going for 42.

    But I know one day, good things are coming our way

    With lyrics like this:

    "If you'd only, if you'd only say 'Yes'/I'm just so tired of this loneliness."

    Definitely YES

    Going with 42. Seems like they may actually try something different with this one. Plus it doesn't have as cheesy a name as the others.

    I wonder which song is the song that they said that everyone had to hear before they died.
