This week’s Song of the Week is Coldplay’s title track from their upcoming album ‘Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends’. The lead single for the album is Violet Hill, which is also a fine track, but ‘Viva la Vida’ is available via iTunes as a teaser track, and the title track has legs….you will be hearing it all summer on A/C radio (along with Duffy). It’s got the signature Coldplay ethereal-yet-rich sound, a a good hook, and the kind of lyrics that leave you more curious than content. This will become one of the Coldplay singles that gets airplay for years, if the rest of the album is as strong as Viva la Vida and Violet Hill, the band is in for another smash with their fourth album.

Check out Violet Hill at the band’s MySpace page. The album won’t be released until June 17th, but the single ‘Viva La Vida’ is available on iTunes. Coldplay will be touring almost all year with dates in Europe, North America and Japan starting in June and running through November.

Because there isn’t a video released yet for Viva la Vida, I am embedding the ‘Violet Hill’ performed live video, and I’ll put up the Viva la Vida video as soon as it is available.
