“EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL,” THE NEW SINGLE FROM COLDPLAY, IS OUT TODAY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 3, 2011

“EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL,”

THE NEW SINGLE FROM COLDPLAY,

IS OUT TODAY

Coldplay’s new single, “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” was released today at 12pm (BST). The track is now available on iTunes and at all digital retailers, except in the UK where the track is released at 12:01am on Sunday, June 5.  It is also streaming on coldplay.com <http://coldplay.com>.

“Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” was produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green and Rik Simpson. Brian Eno is credited with Enoxification and additional composition. The song contains compositional elements of “I Go To Rio” by Peter Allen (1976), written by Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson.  The writing of “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” is credited to Berryman / Buckland / Champion / Martin / Allen / Anderson.

EW.com called “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” “another epic inspirational cut” while RollingStone.com observed: “When the drums kick in fully, it moves like ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’ by way of the Velvets’ ‘Sunday Morning,’ a flag-waving ode to change-as-inspiration.” “The song…is a logical extension of the expansive sounds of Viva La Vida,” said Spin.com and MTV.com hailed it as “four minutes of pure, unadulterated uplift.”

Coldplay will perform at numerous international festivals including today’s Rock im Park in Nuremberg, Germany, the U.K.’s Glastonbury and T In The Park festivals, Fuji Rock in Japan, Splendour In The Grass in Australia and Brazil’s Rock in Rio. In the States, the band will play Lollapalooza in August and headline the Austin City Limits Festival on September 16.
