Coldplay Perform "Magic" On Ellen; Don't Put New Album on...

Posted by - 10:30 AM on 05/21/14
Coldplay's performance of "Magic" on Ellen can be found in the replies. I still haven't heard the album yet because the band apparently isn't putting it on streaming services. It's weird how much my listening habits have changed completely these days -- I barely keep an iTunes library anymore.

The title might be "Magic" but the song is anything but.

I haven't heard it either, and have avoided hearing any of the singles so far.

It's genius to avoid the streaming services at first.

It was up for streaming last week on iTunes. Makes sense for them just to wait, much like the Black Keys.

Don't listen to that album or the new Broken Bells hardly at all (and I like them and would want to listen to them) for the very reason that they're not up.

Am I missing out on the new Broken Bells? I've heard mixed reviews and again, since it is not stream-able, I haven't heard it. Maybe I'm just cheap (I'm cheap)

I literally have listened to it maybe twice in full. I liked it when I heard it though, but I'm not dropping $ on the iTunes files because I just so barely ever use iTunes it would be a waste of my money.

Yep, I won't be hearing this until it's on Rdio. They have 34 other "albums" up so im sure it'll get there eventually.

I'm the same way, it's crazy how my listening/buying patterns have changed. I have to wonder if this actually boosts sales or if there are millions of people like me who don't care and will sit it out.

I too will just wait it out. I am solely a streaming person now, which is crazy because I have something like 600 CDs all over my room.

I don't think it's a very good move to avoid streaming, mostly because I'm not sure who they think they're pushing albums to anyways. Diehard fans will buy the record regardless and those who have a slight interest (me) will eventually lose it until they stream, rather than feel forced to buy the album on a whim.

I'm surprised by how much I enjoy this album. It's definitely an improvement over Mylo Xyloto.
