Coldplay fans waiting to hear the band's first single for two years were treated to a repeat performance when Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton played it twice, back to back.

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall was also played on Radio 2, 6 Music, Absolute Radio and Xfm as part of a publicity blitz.

Fearne said she was "honoured" to help debut the track which is released on Saturday on download in the UK, and tweeted fans: "playing it again sod it".

The song, which includes the lyrics "I'd rather be a comma than a full stop", got a positive reception from fans online.

One writing on Twitter said: "Wait... did Coldplay just release their best song in ten years? Every Teardrop is a Waterfall is spectacular."

Another said: "Best song of 2011."

Coldplay are due to top the bill at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday June 25.

This ability to stand apart from the crowd will make you invincible. Stop looking to others for cues.More
