Coldplay Connect With the Spirit of Early Hip-Hop on New Single

Also: Stream new music by Lil Wayne, Arctic Monkeys, Black Lips, Dawes, Journey and more

In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Jon Dolan praises "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," the first single from Coldplay's upcoming fifth album, which gets in touch with the enthusiastic, imaginative spirit of early hip-hop while sounding like a mixture of U2, the Velvet Underground and rave music. Also, Jody Rosen digs Lil Wayne's acoustic rap ballad "How to Love," which he says is "a casual ground-breaker," and marvels at the "cheeky verbosity" of the Arctic Monkeys' new album Suck It and See, their best record since their 2006 debut.
