Coldplay have been teasing their twitter followers this last week with videos featuring probable lyrics to new material. Each video would last only ten seconds or so and featured a visualisation of jumbled words; a riddle if you like to tantalise us into thinking somethings going on.
It was announced today that indeed, something has been going on; the fifth album. The first piece of this new LP is in the form of a new single entitled ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall’. Unfortunately we have to wait until friday for the first listen, but I deciphered one of the ‘riddle’ videos which read, “Maybe I’m in the black, maybe I’m on my knees, maybe I’m in the gap between two trapezes.” This could be lyrics to the new song or another named ‘Trapezes’, who knows. I’m excited nonetheless.
