Gwyneth Paltrow is about to have some heavy competition as the most recognized singer in the Paltrow-Martin household this year. Coldplay headlined Germany’s Rock am Ring festival over the weekend, and debuted several new tracks from their still-untitled fifth studio album. Hop below to watch Chris Martin & Co. perform their newest batch of songs, including new single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” . Hope you like them, since you’ll be hearing the band’s latest material quite a bit this summer as they’ll be hitting Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

Our immediate favorite among these five new songs is the last track in this post, though there appears to be some confusion whether it’s called “Charlie Brown” or “Cartoon Hearts”. Being that there’s a lyric mentioning “Cartoon hearts”, it’s probably the latter, though honestly, we kind of think the Peanuts’ underdog deserves his own song to hit the Top 40, don’t you?

“Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall”

“Hurts Like Heaven”

“Major Minus”

“Us Against The World”
