Coldplay Up for Pre-order

Coldplay, that rockin’ British band has a new CD coming out in June, and if you pre-order now, you can get the title track today and also receive an acoustic version of the song “Lovers in Japan.”

The single “Violet Hill,” which you can listen to on their website (if you aren’t one of the 2 million that already downloaded that song), was offered as a freebie last week by the band on their website (click here to get it, thanks Patrix!).

You can also buy it without DRM in the iTunes Music Store.

I don’t know about you, but I like the idea of these bigger bands releasing some of their music for free to get people into it. It is so frustrating to buy an album just to realize that you don’t like it.
