In a coldplay.com inteview on May 21st 2009, Chris Martin commented that the song exists in eight different forms, all entirely unfinished. Will Champion is also known to dislike the song. Chris confirmed that the band have no plans to finish or release the song in any form in the future.

The Oracle on LeftRightLeftRightLeft

July 30, 2008 - submitted by Lucinda, Netherlands
Q. What about the songs named Glass Of Water, Rainy Day, Poppy Fields, Leftrightleftrightleft, A Spell A Rebel Yell a.o.? Are those names previous names of Coldplay songs on Viva la Vida, or are they new songs? And if so, when do they come out and where can we find them?
The Oracle replies:
They were all songs recorded during the process of making the 4th album. Some were serious contenders for inclusion. As with previous albums the selection process was long and intense. Trying to get the right balance meant that these songs had to be left off. Sometimes they appear as b-sides so we may still hear them. At the moment they can’t be heard anywhere I could direct you to.
