Coldplay & Brian Eno-Free Download


via The Echoes Blog by john on 4/30/08
Brian Eno has spent the last year or so producing the new Coldplay album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. As a teaser, the band has released a free download of a single from the disc, "Violet Hill." It's available for a limited time off the Coldplay website. The full album is set for release on June 17, 2008. "Violet Hill" opens with an Eno soundscape of gently sustained synth pads and some trumpet that recalls Jon Hassell, although I don't think it's him. Then it launches into a U2esque anthemic rocker. Enjoy and remember, on the week of May 12 we'll be featuring Brian Eno with interviews Monday-Thursday and an entire show based around the music of Eno. Go to the Echoes website for more information.
