NEW YORK (Billboard) - "LeftRightLeftRightLeft," the free live album that Coldplay is giving away on CD to every fan who attends this summer's "Viva La Vida" tour, is now available as a free download from the band's website.

The giveaway begins as the band's North American tour kicks off with a Friday night (May 15) show at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida.

"Playing live is what we love," Coldplay said in a statement. "This album is a thank you to our fans -- the people who give us a reason to do it and make it happen."

The nine-track live album was recorded at various cites during the "Viva La Vida" tour.

Coldplay's tour wraps with two huge outdoor shows September 18 and 19 at Wembley Stadium in London.
