Coldplay Releases New Single

After 2 years, Coldplay has finally released some new music.

Ahhh finally, more easy-listening adult-alternative music that I won’t include on my “workout” playlist.

Coldplay’s newest single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” was released this morning before being formally released for download June 4.

So what has the band been up to since they released their last album “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends,” back in 2008? They’ve been busy working on their fifth new album for the past two years with producer Brian Eno who also produced their “Viva La Vida” album.

The new album doesn’t have a name or a release date yet, so why now did they decide to drop the single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall?” Coldplay says, “We’re about to play a bunch of summer festivals so it’s as good a time as any to put out a new song.”

Fun fact about the song: The new song samples 1970 classic, Peter Allen’s “I Go to Rio.”

The New York Times once called Coldplay, “the most insufferable band of the decade,” but twitter fans are saying, “I’m digging this new coldplay song.”

At the end of the day, this new Coldplay song sounds just like a Coldplay song.

Do you like “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall?”
