Coldpaly…still keeping it fun!
YES…Coldplay’s lead-off single from the upcoming new album will be on vinyl. It comes out on Tuesday, July 19, 2011. From what I’ve heard, it is a high quality UK pressing on 180 gram BLUE vinyl and boasts a die-cut thick picture sleeve.
The B-side is (of course) going to be a non-LP track. The list price on this puppy is $11.99. Now before I moan & groan about the high price, we must remember it IS on heavy colored vinly from the UK…still really about $2.00 overpriced. I just kept my mouth shut and pre-ordered it because you all know it will soon be on ebay for booko bucks. By the way, if you don’t know, the single is titled ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and the CD version is already out there on the market now.
Coldplay always give their fans a little something extra by putting very high quality songs on the B-side of virtually every single they ever put out. These B-sides are never on their official albums.
(Ed. Note: see my upcoming article on this website titled “B-side Heroes” )
Now go out and order this thing…Coldplay will be big for a very long time because just like Bono from U2, Chris would never dare to try a solo thing…even though he really could, probably more than Bono because The Edge is so, so, so… awesome!
