Coldplay’s Chris Martin unveiled a new song as he performed at the Apple convention in San Francisco this past week. Martin, who was wearing a Flaming Lips T Shirt announced the song, called “Wedding Bells” “might never come out”.
“This is a new song, this is called the Coldplay 2.6, this features seven different types of chord, including a new one that even our closest rivals know nothing about,” he joked.
The Coldplay frontman also performed songs “Yellow” and “Viva La Vida” saying of the later song: “our record company said this is not a hit single. But with the weight of Apple, they managed to turn into a very successful single.”
What’s Apple Coming Out With Next?
Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, used the convention to launch a series of new iPods, but most interestingly announced Apple’s latest breakthrough into social media – with Ping.
Set for integration into Apple’s iTunes 10 release, the service will give the ability to follow favorite musicians and friends playlists as well as see what gigs they are attending. Jobs claimed the information will arrive in a stream of updates, similar to Facebook’s and Twitter’s news feed.
