limited gatefold vinyl - 3000 copies. coldplay's fourth studio album, 'viva la vida, or death and all his friends', sees the band emerge from the success of 2005's 'x&y' with the same hunger that has gained them global success ever since 2000's parachutes. lead single 'violet hill' contains trademark catchy piano hooks, along with a heavy guitar edge. singer chris martin chose the album title after seeing the phrase, which means 'long live life' on a painting by mexican artist frida kahlo, who endured polio, a broken spine, and chronic pain for decades.
