Music Notes: Coldplay to give away free live album, Pearl Jam to tour overseas

- Coldplay will be giving away a free live CD, LeftRightLeftRight, at all their remaining live shows in 2009 (excluding festival appearances). This will start with the band's May 15 show in West Palm Beach, Florida. The band also intends to make the CD available as a free download via their website starting May 15. You have to admit, it's pretty nice of them. []

- Australian singer Sia (also known for her work with Zero 7) will be releasing her first DVD and a live EP in the near future. TV is My Parent, the DVD, will feature live concert footage from New York's Hiro Ballroom, four music videos, and behind the scenes footage. The DVD is set for release on May 19. The Live From Sidney EP will feature seven live tracks. It will be released digitally on May 5. [NME,]

- So in slightly weird/potentially horrifying news, the Kanye West/Jared Leto collaboration is real. Kanye collaborated with Leto's band 30 Seconds to Mars on a track titled "Hurricane." The track is supposed to appear on the band's next album. [Pitchfork]

- Sad news: Seven-months-pregnant Kelis has filed for divorce from husband Nas, citing "irreconcilable differences." [E! Online]

- And last but not least, No Doubt reunited on the Today Show today. You can watch their different performances on the show's website, but you can watch an embedded version of "Spiderwebs" from Tragic Kingdom below [Today]:

  1. Say what you want about Chris Martin, but that's pretty awesome of him/them. Now if only this CD would include the Jay-Z remix of Viva La Vida and the Strauss opening. ;-)
