Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you can at least give British pop sensation Coldplay props for their latest move.

The band is giving away its latest live album—that’s right, free of charge. The name might be a head-scratcher, “LeftRightLeftRightLeft,” but we can forgive that because the price is definitely right.

Coldplay will drop the disc on each fan who attends concerts on the remaining stops of their current tour starting with a West Palm Beach, Fla., show on May 15, and you’ll also be able to download it from beginning May 15.

The band, led by singer Chris Martin, says the giveaway is both a thank-you and a little nod to the economic troubles so can at least save a few bucks for some new music. Says the website:

According to the band, the give-away is meant as a recession-busting mark of gratitude to everyone who’s supported them: “Playing live is what we love. This album is a thank you to our fans – the people who give us a reason to do it and make it happen.”

Here’s the nine-song tracklist:
1. Glass of Water
2. 42
3. Clocks
4. Strawberry Swing
5. The Hardest Part/Postcards From Far Away
6. Viva La Vida
7. Death Will Never Conquer
8. Fix You
9. Death And All His Friends

Of course, our first thought was that this reminded us of another huge British band that seems to lurk over Coldplay’s shoulders—Radiohead, which put out its most recent studio release “In Rainbows” in the unorthodox form of a name-your-price download (at least until it also released it as a CD, LP, collector’s edition, etc.).

Hey, as a free download “LeftRightLeftRightLeft” will certainly be worth the minute or two it’ll take on high-speed Internet to snag.
