7digital have now made available short previews of the B-sides to Coldplay's forthcoming single 'Life In Technicolor ii'. 30 second previews of the tracks 'The Goldrush' and 'Life In Technicolor ii' (live at the 02 in London) are online and you can hear them both here now.
Coldplay were earlier pleased to announce that Life In Technicolor ii would be Coldplay's next UK single. The track will be released on 7-inch vinyl and digital bundle from January 30th. The B-side of the 7-inch will be The Goldrush, a song which is previously unheard, unreleased and unperformed. As well as that track, the digital bundle will contain Life In Technicolor ii (Live @ The O2, London). The expected release date for this is 2nd February 2009. Will Champion will apparently take lead vocals on The Goldrush, similar to Death Will Never Conquer. For a time, the two songs were mistakenly thought to be the same as each other, probably due to Will's vocal contribution.
What do you think of the previews? Let us know in the Coldplay forum here onwards [thanks Dvid & Mc.]
