JUNE 17TH, 2008


Dropping today, the much-anticipated fourth album Viva La Vida (meaning "long live life", a phrase from a Frida Kahlo painting) delivers less falsetto and a more dark and dirty sound from Chris Martin.

Produced by the legendary Brian Eno and recorded in an English bakery, nunnery, magic shop and church (according to the sleeve), it was lauded for its "fairytale lyrics" by Rolling Stone.

Such as "Violet Hill" in which Martin asks in the chorus, “If you love me will you let me know?”

Yes, Chris, we sure do.

Purchase Viva La Vida at ($11.99).
Download Viva La Vida today from iTunes ($9.99).
