coldplay1 First Listen: Coldplay, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall[pullquote quote="We're about to play a bunch of summer festivals so it's as good a time as any to put out a new song." credit="Will"]Like a [lastfm]Dave Matthews Band[/lastfm] or [lastfm]Pink Floyd[/lastfm], [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] are one of those love/hate kind of bands.

Since the end of their last world tour, Coldplay has been working on, with exception of a few shows, the creation of their next Grammy-caliber album. With albums like X&Y and Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, it’ll be difficult to create something more exciting considering how popular those releases were.

Earlier in the week we got news that the band is releasing brand new material, again produced by [lastfm]Brian Eno[/lastfm]. Now you can stream the first single, “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and be the judge of Chris Martin and Co’s new sound.

Oh, and if you haven’t grabbed the FREE Album Download you can pick that up as well.

[photogallerylink id=75816 align=left] The new song, like the rest on the new album, is said to be “more acoustic” and “more intimate” than what Coldplay is known for. If you’d like a preview of what to expect this summer when Coldplay fly in to Chicago to headline Lollapalooza, you’ve come to the LeftRightLeftRight place. During their Viva La Vida tour, the band offered up a LIVE disc to concertgoers and later made available as this FREE Download.

Here is the lyrics to the new single: “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall”

I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON

I SHUT THE WORLD OUTSIDE UNTIL THE LIGHTS COME ON

MAYBE THE STREETS ALIGHT, MAYBE THE TREES ARE GONE
I FEEL MY HEART START BEATING TO MY FAVOURITE SONG

AND ALL THE KIDS THEY DANCE, ALL THE KIDS ALL NIGHT

UNTIL MONDAY MORNING FEELS ANOTHER LIFE

I TURN THE MUSIC UP

I’M ON A ROLL THIS TIME

AND HEAVEN IS IN SIGHTI TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON

FROM UNDERNEATH THE RUBBLE SING A REBEL SONG

DON’T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER GENERATION DROP

I’D RATHER BE A COMMA THAN A FULL STOPMAYBE  I’M IN THE BLACK, MAYBE I’M ON MY KNEES
MAYBE I’M IN THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO TRAPEZES

BUT MY HEART IS BEATING AND MY PULSES START

CATHEDRALS IN MY HEART

AND WE SAW OH THIS LIGHT I SWEAR YOU, EMERGE BLINKING INTO

TO TELL ME IT’S ALRIGHT

AS WE SOAR WALLS, EVERY SIREN IS A SYMPHONY

AND EVERY TEAR’S A WATERFALL

IS A WATERFALL

OH
IS A WATERFALL

OH OH OH

IS A IS A WATERFALL

EVERY TEAR

IS A WATERFALL

OH OH OHSO YOU CAN HURT, HURT ME BAD

BUT STILL I’LL RAISE THE FLAG

OH

IT WAS A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL

A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL

EVERY TEAR

EVERY TEAR

EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL

EVERY TEAR

EVERY TEAR

EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL
