    according to wikipedia, LIT is written by Jon Hopkins!
    Is this true?

    Instrumentals are music too. I think it's great. I doubt Coldplay would rip a track like that, and then go make a film of themselves playing it with Eno. This is their own work.

    are we sure it's just an instrumental? In RS article a lyric was reported: "Baby it's a violent world"

    The leaked video (which ive seen) of LIT is a 'rough cut' which means there could be lyrics for the album version :)

    That leaked video might not be the final version of the track tho... it said "rough cut" at the beginning.

    I'm perfectly happy with it as an instrumental though.

    ^ exactly, maybe it's just the music without lyrics...
    I'd like lyrics instead

    They've said in the past the album opens with an instrumental, so don't go getting your hopes up for the lyrics!

    Jon Hopkins mixed a song late last year (more on this here), so LIT might be that song.

    Well this is what was written in the billboard review of VLVODAAHF:

    "Viva La Vida" begins with a strident instrumental, "Life in Technicolor," built as much on an arpeggiated synth foundation as it is on an acoustic guitar melody. The same instrumental is tacked onto the final song, "Death and All His Friends," as a hidden track dubbed "The Escapist."

    I think they reviewed it after RS, so they may have changed LIT after all, but who knows... ;)

    Is there a problem with instrumental tracks?
    From what I heard, LIT was one of the best tracks that have leaked so far.

    Anyone who saw the video... Who is the new guy? My first thought was Brian Eno but no one is really talking about it

    The guy on the piano, if thats who you mean, I'm pretty sure that was Eno.
    Nice to see him getting so involved :D
