This week's edition of NME is now available, and with it Coldplay's vinyl 7" single. Here's a excerpt from the magazine article:
Chris Martin said the sales figures for their first three albums can't be topped, so the group decided that they didn't need to make "big songs" on Viva La Vida.
"We thought, 'We can't possibly get any bigger, let's just get better," Martin told NME. "We're actually a bit scared because we've taken the safety off this time. It's not like we've got any songs on the record where we think, 'Oh, it's OK because we know the big songs are on there', we had some of those, but we took them off. We decided it was time to push what the band could do forward."
