’X&Y’ is put on the internet a week ahead of official release…

COLDPLAY’s new album ’X&Y’ has leaked ahead of its June 6 release.

The band’s latest LP appeared on file-sharing sites yesterday (May 30), meaning that it is now freely available to download from the internet.

A band insider told NME.COM: “It’s a miracle it hasn’t leaked before now to be honest. It’s released in Japan before Europe and they’ve played the album on their official website [url=] Most major albums leak a long time before release, this is just a few days.”

The band’s record label have been secretive about sending the album out prior to release. Promo copies of the album were sent to journalists under the pseudonym The Fir Trees.
