It's happened to U2 and Eminem and now it's happening to Coldplay. The number one band in Britain called in lawyers this week to investigate the apparent leak of several tracks from their highly anticipated third album. Bands and record companies a like get very nervous when new music starts appearing on the internet because it puts their whole strategy for a new album in the bin. The band were told that filesharing website WinMX had six new Coldplay songs available to download but lucky for everyone concerned it was bollocks and the tracks were found to be fake. After downloading the said tracks there was no audio to be heard. The band let out a big sigh of relief and then went back to work in the studio. The new Coldplay album is due for release late in 2005.
