Coldplay's New Single
By now if you haven't downloaded "Violet Hill," then you probably hate Coldplay. Or maybe you're just terribly lazy. Either one: not cool. Go here.
Chris Martin has made several promises about the band's next album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. In a Rolling Stone article, Martin said this album would be a break from the band's previous three. While we've only heard the first single, judging by it, I can't say I hear much difference.
The song clocks in at almost four minutes, rough the same as other Coldplay singles. The style of "Violet Hill" is less than foreign for anyone listening to a Coldplay song. I do like "Violet Hill" but after listening to it, I don't think Viva la Vida will be like when Radiohead went from The Bends to OK Computer.
