Ever masters of cross-promotion, Coldplay hit the Live Lounge today to cover Rihanna. She appears as the only guest on new album Mylo Xyloto, so the cover served a smart opportunity to remind folks of the pairing. In fact, the only more marketing-savvy person to cover might be producer Brian Eno. Coldplay Does Ambient 1: Music for Airports anyone?
The cover sounds good and Coldplay-ey, with Chris Martin hammering on the piano and Jonny Buckland adding acoustic riffs. It follows yesterday’s Live Lounge cover of Coldplay, by Noah and the Whale. Tomorrow Rihanna needs to go cover someone and keep the chain going.
