Placebo - new songs and chance to be in a music video

A few different sites have one or the other of these tracks available but I didn't see any with both, so...since EAR FARM likes Placebo here we go.

Both of these tracks are off of Placebo's new album due out in March (which may or may not be called Meds).

The first, "Because I Want You" is to be the first single released in the UK off of the new album. It's what you might expect to hear from this band, which isn't a bad thing if you're a fan. Want to be in a video for this song?

Here’s what to do (From the news section on their site):
"Turn up at KOKO (1a Camden Road, London NW1 OJH) on Tuesday 24th January at 6.30pm PROMPT. Doors will close at 7.30pm! Placebo will be shooting the video for the new single ‘Because I Want You’.

Please note the following important points:
- By turning up at the venue (inside or outside) you are consenting to be filmed and agreeing to the use of your image in the video. You must be over 16 years old and ID may be required to enter the venue.
- There are limited numbers so turning up does not guarantee entry (if we are over-subscribed). Admittance will be on a first come first served basis. (PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT IF TRAVELLING FROM AFAR)
- We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone.
- No video cameras, cameras etc...
- Please be prompt! Doors will close at 7.30pm. Filming
will continue until approximately 10pm.
- You never know, Placebo may perform a couple of extra tracks for you…..

The second song is called "Broken Promise" and features Michael Stipe. As best I can tell this song is also to be on the new album. Enjoy.
