Coldplay - Viva La Vida

Coldplay - Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends
..Coldplay used the Liberty Leading the People (French: La Liberté guidant le peuple) painting by Eugène Delacroix in commemorating the French Revolution, as their cover album.

Here's another much awaited new release by one of UK's best band, Coldplay! According to Wikipedia, the new album is due to be released worldwide on 16th June. But as usual, you can always find it on Torrent sites first. (Viva la Vida.mp3 download link below)

Some interesting trivia of Viva La Vida according to Shahnon.com;
1. A lot of death related song titles, i.e. 'Death and All His Friends', 'Cemeteries of London' and '42'.

2. The intro of 'Viva la Vida' (my favorite song) sounds very much similar to Alizee's song, 'J'en Ai Marre' and apparently the song, 'Viva la Vida' is about the French Revolution (see chorus below) while Alizee (pronounced: "ah-lee-zay" ) is a hot French singer. (seriously:)) So there seems to be a link there? But then again, it could be a coincidence. Go to Youtube and listen for yourself.

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
