Coldplay Fix You Cover
This is a combination CD single, which features the single, a B-side, a live track, and the video for the song.
For a while, CD singles were marketed this way. I'm not sure if they continue to do this, given that, on the Internet, what few videos are made are generally available for free all the time. There would be no need to put this particular video on a CD single today; a band like Coldplay would simply put that video on their website while their record company would feature it on their website, plus on any other third party website under an official banner (such as on YouTube).
The artwork is minimalistic, and I get that they were going for Legos. The typography is killer, but the obscurity of the block images throws everything off a bit.
