Free exclusive vinyl to be given away with magazine
Coldplay will release the first fruits from their forthcoming new album, 'Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends', free with the NME. A free Coldplay 7-inch vinyl single will be given away with the issue of NME that comes out on May 7. The vinyl will include 'Violet Hill', a song that will appear on the forthcoming LP. Another song, 'A Spell A Rebel Yell', will feature on the vinyl, and won't be available anywhere else.
Krissi Murison is deputy editor at the NME and she says Chris Martin contacted them direct. "He called up our editor one night from the studio, he said 'I have just written this song and it's the pefect song. NME readers are gonna love it, we have to get it out there.'"
To ensure you get your copy of the exclusive Coldplay vinyl you can pre-order your issue from NME.COM at the NME online shop. The album, the follow-up to 2005's 'X&Y', will be released on June 16.
