Anybody else heard the new Coldplay single?
 
 I think it is pretty good - definitely a different sound for them.

It sounds like Billy Joel.

not bad, although i could have done without the polka-bass.  and apparently eno was unable to stop martin's favorite form of self-indulgence: an outro of repeated chorus over wistful solo piano.  the ambience on martin's voice is interesting.
 
 definitely looking forward to hearing the rest of the album (officially drops on june 17).
