Chris Martin & co return with the Xmas track “Christmas Lights.” The track is co-produced by Brian Eno, legendary U2 producer and responsible for the UK No.1 “Heroes” with the X-Factor Finalists. The Xmas single is the first to chart since “Strawberry Swing” in September 2009. It was the final and fifth single off Coldplay’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends album. The track bombed and only made it to No.158 in the UK.
“Christmas Lights” bows at No.18 and will not be included on their upcoming fifth album. The YouTube clip has attracted more than 1.8m viewers to date.
