Left Right Left Right Left

Coldplay is the latest band to offer free album download, jumping on the bandwagon that bands such as Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails pioneered.

The nine-song live album called “Left Right Left Right Left” features songs from the band’s Viva La Vida tour.

The band calls the album a gift to its fans, but there is nothing really worth paying for on it as it is so there’s not too much to be grateful for here.  

“Playing live is what we love,” Coldplay said in a statement. “This album is a thank you to our fans — the people who give us a reason to do it and make it happen.”

Truth is Coldplay probably could have put this in stores and made millions.

Anyone attending the band’s tour this summer will receive a physical copy of the album; otherwise it’s digital or nothing for the rest.
