Coldplay - Regreting link?
Coldplay removes 'Freedom for Palestine' link
Days after promoting One World's musical collaboration, British band unceremoniously removes controversial link from official Facebook page
Coldplay in retreat? The British band created an online commotion last week when it posted a link to the song "Freedom for Palestine" on its official Facebook page.

 

Yet after receiving thousands of responses from both sides of the political map for their support of the song it would seem the band decided to spare itself further political implications and removed the link from its Facebook page.

 

 

When they first posted the link to the musical collaboration organized by the One World organization the band wrote: "Some of our friends are involved in One World's new 'Freedom for Palestine' single" and invited their followers to check out the song online and listen to it.


 

The clip, which features musicians Maxi Jazz from Faithless, Jamie Catto from 1 Giant Leap and other members of British rock bands, shows images of the security fence, Palestinian residents and the different artists performing the song.

 

Two days later, Coldplay unveiled their new song "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall," the first single from their soon to be released album. However, comments sparked by the previous link continued flowing despite the release of the anticipated new song.

 

Now, it seems the band has decided to remove the link offering no further explanation.
