Get the Coldplay Tube!

October 23, 2003 6:39 PM

If you're stuck looking for the ideal Christmas gift for your nearest and dearest then look no further than the Coldplay Celebrity Tree Tube!

Retailing at £17.50, the tubes were designed by the band and will certify you have a tree planted in part of the Mango Plantation in India supported by the band. As part of the Future Forests campaign, the plantation made Coldplay's last album 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head' carbon neutral. That means the 10,000 mango trees planted are enough to soak up all of the CO2 emitted in the production, manufacture and distribution of the CD.

To buy a sapling in the Coldplay forest go to futureforests.com or call 0870 2411932.

Brandy Records Song About Coldplay

October 18, 2003 2:36 PM

R&B star Brandy is a surprise devotee of British rockers Coldplay – and is such a big fan she's even recorded a song about them.

The 'The Boy is Mine' singer plans to include the track – called Coldplay – on her next album, and has identified it as a possible single.

Brandy even quotes the lyrics from Coldplay's 'Sparks,' which appeared on their debut album Parachutes.

She sings, "Sittin' home on a cold day/ Underneath the covers like a little baby/ Think I wanna hear some Coldplay, especially that song when the man sings, 'Did I drive you away?'"

Brandy's new album is set for release next March and it seems the Coldplay men are honored by her compliment.

Bassist Guy Berryman says, "We're very flattered that someone is so into our music that it's inspired them to write a song. It'll be interesting to hear how it sounds."

An Open Letter to the RIAA

October 15, 2003 5:57 PM

There is what I feel to be a very insightful and eye-opening letter to the RIAA over at EWORLDWIRE today. It was written by Greg Ross to represent the views of the record labels you don't frequently hear about – the independent ones.

I wouldn't typically post about such a letter here, but it does mention Coldplay, and therefore I think it is relevant enough for Coldplay fans to consider. In the letter, Mr. Ross observes:

When Itunes first launched, the band Coldplay's singles were all over the Itunes charts, probably because so many people had heard them, but were only familiar with one or two songs. After people sampled the songs and decided they liked what they heard, Coldplay's album went from the 50s to the top 5 on the Billboard charts. At the same time the album started to rise up the charts, the number of downloads started to drop. People liked what they heard and they went out to buy it.

If you have the time, I'd definitely recommend reading the open letter.

October 10, 2003 6:02 PM

This bit of news comes straight from our friends at Coldplay.com:

Coldplay's video for their new single, "Moses," will premiere on AOL tomorrow, Saturday October 11th! The song is taken from their 2-disc DVD/CD set "COLDPLAY LIVE 2003" – in stores November 4th.

Unfortunately, there wasn't any specific information provided as to where exactly, or when the video will be available. I'm betting a link will show up somewhere on AOL Music's site, so keep an eye out there. If I hear anything more, I'll post it here.
