Coldplay’s new single, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall”, is out today and I like it. It sounds like them, which I’m glad for because I was afraid it would have some new feel that didn’t sound or feel like Coldplay.
Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head were the defining albums for Coldplay. X & Y is where they matured that feel and that sound. All three of those albums are stellar. And though Viva la Vida is also a great album with some great tracks, it wasn’t quite as Coldplay-y as their previous 3 records (the intro track is the most Coldplay-like sound on the whole album).
I was fearful that their next studio songs would be even further of a departure. But, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” is great. Hopefully the full album, which is due out this fall, will be just as entertaining and enjoyable as this single is.
