Dave, there might be something wrong with the download. The sound quality is terrible (static, dragging audio, and it sounds underwater).

Hi Michael,

There seems to be some audio play-back issue with Internet Explorer at the moment even though it plays fine using Firefox.

Anyway, I’ve replaced the audio version with the video version which seems to work fine on both platforms.

Let me know if you are still having problems.

Dave 🙂

Hi Samara!

I don’t listen to Coldplay songs normally, but I liked their last song Viva la vida.
A few minutes ago I found a coldplay fansite with the lyrics of Lhuna : )

Does anyone know if the song will be released as a CD, too?
Love the song! Love KYLIE!!!

Hi Nina! I think the song is going to be on Coldplays next album but i think that wont be until next year. Coldplay covered Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head in 2005 Glastonbury its on ouTube its a great performance!

The song was intended to be on the Viva la Vida release, but was left off. I heard it was because Coldplay considered it “too sexy” and that was not the kind of band they were trying to be. Uh, sorry. Not sexy – except for the fact that Kylie is singing on it. To each his or her own, of course, but Coldplay leaves me… well, cold.

If it the link here didn’t work for you it’s all over YouTube and you can hear it there.

I don’t really like it, I just can’t get into it.

I prefer Kylies other songs and Cold Plays other songs.

It’s not my favourite Kylie track either, but it’s still a great way to support a really important cause!

Okay, so I’m a bit late responding to this one… I am a Coldplay fan, as well as a Kylie fan; and to shed some light on Samara’s questions: I think this song is a little less rock and different from what Coldplay typically turns out. This song lacks the guitar rifts and piano/keyboard work that has become a bit of Coldplay’s signature. Not to say that Coldplay’s music all sounds the same — it doesn’t. Each of their albums has a different and distinctive sound, but can still be easily recognized as Coldplay. I think Lhuna is definitely a unique track and is more about Kylie than Coldplay. Chris Martin has obviously taken a back seat on this one — if you listen to any of Coldplay’s music, you’ll understand what I’m saying. I wouldn’t call this a “duet” in any way. I would say it’s Kylie with Chris on back-up and Coldplay just happens to be the accompanying band. I think Kylie’s voice makes the song sound a bit enchanting, but I could do without Chris’ droning in the background.
