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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Listening to such dire warnings will make you miserable. You're a born adventurer who wants to see the world. Venturing into unknown places gives you a thrill. You also enjoy competing. Although a superior rival might outperform you, that's a chance you're willing to take. People admire your bravery.More
