Rock band Coldplay has released
Fix You, an EP available exclusively through the iTunes Music Store.
“Coldplay, BMG Publishing, Capitol Records/EMI and Apple will donate 100 percent of their share of the proceeds of all US sales of this digital EP to the American Red Cross Hurricane 2005 Relief and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences’ MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund,” said Apple in a statement.
The EP was planned for digital release in the U.S. next week, according to Apple. “… in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Coldplay, Capitol and Apple moved up the release date,” said the company.
The US$2.99 EP includes the album version of Fix You, as well as “Pour Me” (recorded live at the Hollywood Bowl in 2003), “The World Turned Upside Down” (from the X&Y studio sessions) and “Fix You” (recorded live this summer in Arnhem, Holland).
