Coldplay will allow fans a free download of the lead single from their upcoming fourth studio album "Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends."

Starting tomorrow (April 29), the song "Violet Hill" will be available for a week at the British rock band's Web site. The track, which will be serviced to radio from tomorrow, will get a conventional paid-for digital release on May 6.

While "Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends" is due on June 17 via Capitol in North America, the U.K. release date has been moved up four days to June 12 to bring it into line with global release dates, according to EMI.

In support of the album, Coldplay will also play free shows at London's Brixton Academy on June 16 and Madison Square Garden in N.Y. on June 23. A competition for tickets will be announced on the band's Web site.

As previously reported, "Vida La Vida..." was produced by Brian Eno and Markus Dravs. "We're still obsessed with making songs that can be sung to the rafters" Coldplay frontman Chris Martin explained. "We just wanted to present them differently."
