As many of you might have noticed, I have been mentioning the upcoming release of Coldplay's 2nd single off of 'A Rush of Blood to the Head,' 'The Scientist,' for quite some time now. It appears, however, that the band has decided to go a different route over here in the U.S. According to MTV and other sources, people at the band's U.S. label have decided the song doesn't pack enough punch, and have therefore decided on 'Clocks' as the next single. I've seen no word yet on whether the b-sides will remain the same or be different as well. Hopefully I'll be able to confirm something soon.
When asked about the meaning of some of the lines in 'Clocks,' Chris Martin said "I reckon everybody in the world questions whether they're useful to the world or not. Some people think they're doing marvelous things. Hitler thought he was doing great things for the world, and yet we'd all say, 'No, no, no, he was doing terrible things.' Some people would say that Coldplay is a great thing for music and the world. Other people would regard us as the devil incarnate, so of course it's always a conflict."
More good news on the recognition front tonight, as Coldplay has been nominated for two Q awards. Ananova reports that the band is up for "Best Act in the World Today" and "Best Album." The awards will be handed out in north London this coming Monday.
