RECESSION PERKS

Coldplay Gives Out CD

Following in the steps of bands like Radiohead, Coldplay is breaking through the $9.99-barrier by announcing they will be giving out their latest CD for free. Fans will be able to download the disc on May 15 or get a physical version if they see Coldplay live. The band described the gimmick for the album LeftRightLeftRightLeft a "recession-busting mark of gratitude."
