Exclusive Coldplay EP at iTMS to Benefit Hurricane Katrina Victims -- In "Net Responds to Hurricane Katrina Aftermath" in TidBITS-795, Jeff Carlson reported on how the Internet community has come together in countless ways to help the victims displaced or otherwise affected by Hurricane Katrina, which struck the Gulf Coast of the southern United States a little over two weeks ago. To raise funds for the relief effort, Apple announced last week the release of a new EP by alternative rock band Coldplay, available exclusively at the iTunes Music Store. Apple, Coldplay, BMG Publishing, and Capitol Records/EMI will donate 100 percent of their shares of the proceeds from U.S. sales.

The "Fix You" EP (longer than a single, but shorter than an album) includes two songs previously unreleased in the U.S. ("Pour Me" and "The World Turned Upside Down") and two versions of "Fix You," the band's new single from their double platinum album X&Y. The four-song EP costs $3 and is available immediately. [MHA]
