Coldplay to release 7" vinyl edition of new song

Coldplay to release 7
Great deals on musical instruments

Coldplay are proving to be even more innovative that their recent flirtation with social media as the band plans on releasing their long-awaited comeback single Every Teardrop is a Waterfall on a classic 7" vinyl.

The song was released in the now traditional digital format at the beginning of June, but in a surprise turn of events, the band announced that from Monday June 27th, fans will be able to get hold of a vinyl edition.

Moreover, CD enthusiasts will be able to get a compact disc version along with "two digital bundles".

The vinyl and CD will also feature a new B-side track called Major Minus, in what is seen as a hat-tip to a bygone era of how we used to listen to music.

Chris Martin, who plays the piano, and the rest of the band started posting obscure tweets last month that had fans and the music industry buzzing with curiosity.

This was then followed up with an equally encrypted video that added to the mystery of the tweets.

The band eventually announced to the world that the words were in fact part of their new single.
