At the Apple event today Chris Martin premiered a new Coldplay song, “Wedding Bells,” as well as a few pretty awful jokes. On the plus, he looks about eighty times more sane than he did when I saw him live.
The video’s not great quality and the song is pretty much standard Coldplay. I don’t remember if Brian Eno’s producing their new album, but I hope he is. “Wedding Bells” isn’t bad per se, but it does need a lift from either the full band or an Eno-esque producer.
