Coldplay announces title and release date for new album

coldplay-mylo-xyloto

Coldplay has announced that their fifth album, Mylo Xyloto, will release in the U.S. on Oct. 25. In a message on their website, the band said the record will be produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green, and Rik Simpson “with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno.”

In addition to standard digital, CD, and vinyl release, there will also be a special limited edition Pop-Up Album version, which includes a 12″ x 12″ hard cover book featuring graffiti pop-up art designed by David A. Carter, and exclusive photographs, excerpts from the studio diary, and content from the band’s personal notebooks.

Coldplay recently performed some of the new music from Mylo Xyloto at Lollapalooza. They also performed “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,” the album’s first single, and another track from the record, “Charlie Brown,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The next single, “Paradise,” is due Sept. 12.

On the scene at Lollapalooza, day one: Coldplay, Muse, and more

If Lollapalooza, with its 130 bands spread over three epic, deodorant-challenging days in Chicago’s mammoth Grant Park, is a marathon and not a sprint, Friday was its hope-you-carbo-loaded 10K kick-off.

Fans of chugging, red-meat rock– and Aerosmith obsessives (brothers Adrian and Tony Perry are the sons of Aero icon Joe Perry) — came out early for Boston boys TAB the Band; frontman Adrian told me that they recently spent time in the studio with Mark Neill, who co-produced the Black Keys’ Brothers. I like the Stones-y, jangling “She Said No (I Love You),” even though the title sounds uncomfortably like an After-School Special about date rape.

Next up: Electric Touch, a whammy-bar-friendly Austin outfit with a British frontman whose  black-jeans strut works melodically, if not always lyrically. Either way, the dude near me in the full-body blue spandex bodysuit with his cargo shorts all bunched up underneath seemed to have no reservations; he was extra-loving the “Blitzkrieg Bop” cover.

Reports say there are 90,000 showgoers expected this weekend, and approximately 45,000 of those seemed to be in attendance at Foster the People‘s set on the Sony stage. The L.A. breakouts’ indie-pop anthems — and faithful, slightly incongruous cover of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” — were swallowed at times by the field’s massive sprawl, though the kids didn’t let that stop them from some surprisingly civilized crowd-surfing during “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls),” “Helena Beat,” and “Pumped Up Kicks,” a.k.a. The Hit. (Don’t worry, “Houdini,” you are still my favorite.) Frontman Mark Foster seemed appropriately awed, recalling to the crowd his very recent days spent selling clothes and pulling coffee. Barista no more! READ FULL STORY

Coldplay debut new song, pay tribute to Amy Winehouse on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Coldplay know how to construct sweeping anthems, and they’re also pretty good at multi-tasking. Last night, they played a concert at UCLA (their first in the United States this year) that doubled as a benefit for the Grammy Foundation’s “Grammy in the Schools” program. On top of that, two of the evening’s tunes were broadcast on last night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

With typical Colplayian majesty, Chris Martin and his cohorts blew through a new song called “Charlie Brown” as well as a live rendition of the single “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.” Both sounded sharp and crisp (the band has been honing their chops on the road in Europe), and they look ready to blow away the masses who will gather this weekend in Chicago for Lollapalooza, where Coldplay will headline on Friday night.

Give a listen to both the live version of “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” and the new track “Charlie Brown” (both of which will appear on Coldplay’s still-untitled fifth studio album, out this fall) after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Robyn covers Coldplay's 'Every Teardrop is a Waterfall': Listen to it here

robyn

I thought Robyn’s cover of “Since U been Gone” was my favorite song cover the Swedish songstress had ever done, but then I heard her take on Coldplay’s “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.”

Love is a strong word, but I don’t hesitate using it in this case. She gives the band’s latest hit what can only be described as “the Robyn treatment,” and it has left me in a state of synth-pop euphoria.

Could this cover (which she did for BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge) be a hit for Robyn? I think so. Listen and weight in! READ FULL STORY

Coldplay's 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' video: Watch it here!

This fall, Coldplay will be releasing one of the most high-profile and hotly-anticipated albums of the year. But they’ve already got a head start making noise.

The band just released the EP Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, a three-song collection that features the title track (which also serves as the first single from the forthcoming album) as well as two other new songs, “Major Minus” and “Moving to Mars.”

Now comes their latest video, for “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” and like most of the group’s clips, it’s colorful, jubilant and more than a little trippy. Check it out after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Coldplay's brand-new 'Every Teardrop is a Waterfall': Listen here

This morning, Coldplay dropped their long-awaited first single from their upcoming fifth album, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.” And to no one’s surprise, it’s another epic inspirational cut from the quartet.

“I turn the music on/ I’ve got my records on/ From underneath the rubble, sing a rebel song,” Chris Martin crows over stirring guitar rifts. Check it out:

Billboard Music Awards: Britney Spears joins Rihanna, Beyonce runs the world, Cee Lo spins in space

Duets in the air, do you care—do you love the smell of it?  (This post is written in real time; refresh for updates.)

Rihanna’s show-opening performance of her recent no. 1 single “S&M” became an R&B—yes, Rihanna and Britney: wordplay!—production when Spears joined a white-vinyl-clad RiRi onstage in her own black vinyl naughty-bunny gear for panting, pole-dancing, and a (semi)climactic pillow fight. Also, an endearingly un-vixenish song-closing collapse into giggles. READ FULL STORY

Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay top Lollapalooza's 20th anniversary lineup

The last big festival of the summer is also the last to announce its lineup, but Lollapalooza always manages to bring it. In 2010, the three-day event featured the only festival appearance by Lady Gaga as well as comeback sets by the Strokes and Soundgarden.

This time around, the headliners include Eminem (who will also be turning in a set at Bonnaroo), Foo Fighters (somehow making their Lollapalooza debut) and Coldplay (who will likely use the opportunity to preview some new songs from their upcoming fifth album).

The 2011 version of Lollapalooza, which will again run in Chicago’s Grant Park over what is always one of the hottest weekends of the year (pack your sunscreen!), will also include appearances by My Morning Jacket, Cee Lo Green, A Perfect Circle, Bright Eyes, Arctic Monkeys, Big Audio Dynamite, Cage the Elephant, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and dozens more.

Nirvana and Metallica fans most likely to go 'all the way' on first date, Lady Gaga fans less inclined, according to poll

Sex fiends looking to get lucky on a first date could do worse than to head to Britain and loudly announce their fondness for Metallica and Nirvana.

That is the conclusion to be drawn from a new poll conducted by U.K. music and dating website tastebuds.fm. The site asked users “how far they’d likely go” on a first date and then collated the information to find out band’s fans were the most, and least, likely to go “all the way.”
