Coldplay’s Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends Will Probably Put You To Sleep

Coldplay are releasing their lengthily titled fourth album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends in June. There are ten tracks produced by Brian Eno (!) and Markus Dravs. We have the tracklist. But first, a British survey’s just confirmed what we already knew: These songs will make you fall asleep. Via The Telegraph:

Music by British band Coldplay is our favourite choice for drifting off to sleep at night, a survey has found.

The clean cut rock band topped the “kip parade” in a poll undertaken by Travelodge, with James Blunt, Snow Patrol, Take That and Norah Jones completing the top five.

Jordan’s autobiography was voted most soothing bedtime story, with David Beckham, Jodie Marsh and Sharon Osbourne also providing highly effective soporific reading.

Leigh McCarron of Travelodge said: “We are increasingly relying on slow, sleepy music and unchallenging books to take our minds off the pressures of modern living… Coldplay and Jordan seem to hit just the right spot among Britain’s insomniacs.”

So Coldplay’s got ten new sheep for you to count, and they have names:

01 – “Life In Technicolor”
02 – “Cemeteries Of London”
03 – “Lost!”
04 – “42”
05 – “Lovers In Japan/Reign Of Love”
06 – “Yes”
07 – “Viva La Vida”
08 – “Violet Hill”
09 – “Strawberry Swing”
10 – “Death And All His Friends”

Not that you’ll need any help getting shut-eye, but also rest assured that Chris Martin’s mother-in-law told People his marriage with Gwyneth is strong. Phew!

Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends is out 6/17 on Capitol.
