Coldplay offers free download of new `Violet Hill' single
LONDON (AP) — Coldplay will make the first single from their new album available as a free download to fans who visit the English band's Web site.
"Violet Hill," the first single from "Viva La Vida," will be available on http://www.coldplay.com from 7:15 a.m. EDT Tuesday, one week before it goes on sale at digital retailers.
It will be available as a free download from the Web site for one week, a statement said.
The Web site will also give preliminary details about free shows at London's Brixton Academy on June 16 and at New York's Madison Square Garden on June 23.
Coldplay also announced Monday that the UK release of their new album has been moved up four days to June 12. That's the same day the album will be released in much of the world.
The song is really nice :)
