Chris Martin clearly has had enough of it and he lets his temper flare on Coldplay's brand-new "Minor Minus" that hit YouTube tonight. "I've got one eye on what you do, so be careful what it is you're trying to do," Chris Martin sings. He emphasizes, "I've got one eye on the road and one on you."
"Minor Minus" is nothing like the bright and uplifting "Every Teardrop Is Waterfall" that was such a gentle introduction to Coldplay's new sound. It's a bareknucle rock tune dominated by Chris Martin's menacing lyrics and Jon Buckland's rowling guitar riffs that only get a breather around the 2:00 minute mark for a shimmering break before quickly soaring back into the darkness.
This tune is definitely no single material, but it sure is some epic stuff that will spice up their live shows. And while on the top of live shows, make sure to tune in to Coldplay live at Glastonbury this upcoming Sunday on VH1 and Palldia HD at 10 p.m. EDT. This is the first time in the festival's forty-one year history that a full concert is televised in the U.S. Listen to "Minor Minus" after the break.
