Coldplay releases free live album

No, you're not dreaming. Coldplay is giving away their new album, LeftRightLeftRightLeft, for free.

The album contains nine tracks (including "Clocks" and "Viva La Vida") from their live shows, and is available for download starting today. A CD is also available for fans at most of their shows this year.

According to the band's site, "
[T]he give-away is meant as a recession-busting mark of gratitude to everyone who's supported them."

How cool is that? It's not a totally new album, but it's a nice gesture for fans. The music industry seems to be realizing that word of mouth is a better tool than frivolous lawsuits. Rock on, Coldplay.

For more info or to download the album, check out the band's web site,
