Coldplay have given Q Radio an exclusive taste of their new material but allowing the station the first ever play of an acoustic take on one of their new album tracks.
The track will be given an airing during the June 2nd Q Radio launch programme, QPM, presented by Samanthi who also interviewed Coldplay for the show. Lovers In Japan is one of the standout tracks on the band’s fourth album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends which is released on June 12. Singer Chris Martin said he wanted Q to play the track to wish the station well.
Plus Chris Martin gave us a unique peek at the new album track Life In Technicolor in a completely different form. On Viva La Vida the band are releasing an instrumental version after stripping off the vocals, but they played a section of the track during the interview with the lyrics intact. However Chris’s rendition does lapse into an alternate version when he adds a few bars about blancmange! QPM is on at 6pm and the band’s interview will be at 7pm (both BST).
