Giving ‘em what they want

On the heals of another freely posted NIN song, and amidst¬†talks of Metallica giving away digital tracks…Coldplay announces their “happy medium” between the labels and fans.

Coldplay has decided to give away a free digital download of their first single “Violet, 4:11″ off their soon to be released new album Viva La Vida or Death and all His Friends (June 12th).

The track will be available for free for ONE WEEK ONLY beginning tomorrow at 7:15AM EST.

Great idea, and a fabulous compromise.
