In their infinite wisdom, the still-ridiculously-popular Coldplay recorded a version of “We Found Love,” the monster new dancepop single from their “Princess Of China” collaborator Rihanna, for the BBC. With their downbeat, piano-led version, Coldplay have effectively transformed “We Found Love” into a Coldplay song, though they’ve managed to do it without squashing the chorus’s catchiness. Listen to it below.
In related news, Coldplay sold about 450,000 American copies of their new Mylo Xyloto last week. That is a lot of copies! Also, CNET reports that Coldplay have refused to offer any songs from the album to streaming services like Spotify, Rhapsody, and Rdio. And also, Coldplay were guests on Ellen this morning. We’ve got videos of them performing and being interviewed below.
