Take 1: Coldplay

It's only 2 weeks until the release of Coldplay's 4th album Viva La Vida (Or Death and His blablabla).

By now everyone's heard that Lunar, the band's collaboration with Kylie Minogue, was deemed "too sexy." That is exactly what they need! The Baby U2 thing is not appealing. Whatever. Album opener Life In Technicolour is exactly the kind of music Coldplay should be doing now. Primarily instrumental, the song is a collaboration with remixer Jon Hopkins, so it's rhythmic and airy, along the lines of Stuart Price's remix of Talk, but with a fair amount of jingle jangle.

In the EPK below, you can hear bits of Chinese Sleep Chant and Yes, the song he's singing in the lower register.
