Coldplay Reveal ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall’ Single Artwork
For the past few months, with her appearances on ‘Glee’ and the ‘Country Strong’ film, actress Gwyneth Paltrow has made more waves in the music business than her husband and baby daddy, Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin, who is a major rock star in his own right.
Well, the musical tide in this marriage is shifting back towards Martin, as Coldplay will release their brand new single, ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall,’ from their forthcoming fifth album on Friday, June 3 at 7AM ET. So gear up for a heaping dose of Brit pop, all you Coldplay fans!
The new album — which is currently without an announced title — follows 2008’s incredibly successful ‘Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends.’
The band is delivering the single in advance of their summer festival appearances, according to a post on its official site. There’s no better way to promote tour dates than with a new song and vice versa, that’s for sure.
Sample lyrics from the new single are as follows: “I turn the music / I got my records on / I shut the world outside until the lights come on / Maybe the streets alright / Maybe the trees are gone / I feel my heart start beating to my favorite song.” Based on those words alone, it sounds like a love letter to music. However, the lyrics for the album were reportedly inspired by old-school American graffiti, which would explain the artwork and the band’s choice to pose in front of a graffiti-scribbled wall.
We’re looking forward to hearing what pretty pop Coldplay have come up with when ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall’ lands on Friday, especially since they’ve been dropping lyric video snippets with, ahem, no audio. What a tease!
