The following comes from Contact Music:
British rockers Coldplay called in lawyers yesterday to investigate the apparent leak of several tracks from their eagerly anticipated third album.
The Yellow stars feared sales of the untitled CD would be jeapordised if fans downloaded it before its release, so they called in computer experts to trace the material on the internet, reports British newspaper The Sun.
The band discovered filesharing website WinMX appeared to have six songs from the disc available to subscribers, but fortunately, aides concluded the tracks were fake, soundless files.
An insider says, "Everyone was extremely concerned. Chris (Martin) would have been furious if it had got out.
"The tracks aren't finished yet and he wouldn't wnt the fans to hear anyhting until he thinks it's perfect.
"Thankfully everyone was able to breathe a sigh of relief by the end of the day."
For those out there who are anxious to hear new material from the upcoming album, fear not. I remember quite a bit before ARoBttH came out, the band played some live shows and recordings made their way online.
I guess we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out.
