Coldplay today unveil their comeback single. “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” streams from the band’s official website, with the download going on sale this weekend.

Rumors have been rife about Coldplay’s new songs. Drummer Will Champion recently posted on the band’s site: “We’re about to play a bunch of summer festivals so it’s as good a time as any to put out a new song.” Among the lyrics: “I turn the music up/ I got my records on/ from underneath the rubble” and “Every siren is a symphony/ every tear’s a waterfall.”

Speaking to Q magazine in November 2010, frontman Chris Martin said the follow-up to Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends is inspired by “’70s graffiti art and Germany's anti-Nazi White Rose movement.” He added that the new album will be “group-y” and “guitar-y,” with a title that “will probably begin with an M.”

Brian Eno is once again in the producer’s chair. Coldplay return to the stage on June 4 at the Rock im Park festival in Nuremberg, Germany.
