With just two days to go until the worldwide release of Coldplay’s new album, “Everyday Life”, the band have just revealed two more full songs from the album.

Daddy is accompanied by a stunning animated video, created by Aardman Animations.

Daddy is taken from the new album, Everyday Life.

The other new song is Champion Of The World. A lyric video is available now, and you can stream / download the song here. The song features a co-write credit for Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit / Owl John.

Says Chris: “Scott had a song called Los Angeles, Be Kind, which I love. When I first heard it, I thought it was going to go one way; but it went another. Anyway Champion Of The World is the song that came from following the other path, and that’s why Scott is a co-writer on this song. Today is also his birthday. So happy birthday Scott and Thank you for your beautiful music, wherever you are.”

Taken from the album, “Everyday Life”, out Friday, November 22nd.

A reminder that the band have announced a very special, one-off show at London’s Natural History Museum on Monday (November 25th) to celebrate the release of “Everyday Life”. Exclusive access to purchase tickets will be given to those who pre-order Everyday Life from the Official Coldplay Store, before 11.59pm GMT on Thursday, November 21st.

Coldplay gave viewers a debut performance of ‘Everyday Life’, the title track from their new album, on Saturday Night Live last night (November 2nd). The band also performed their other new single ‘Orphans’

Last month, the band confirmed that they’ll release the double album on November 22nd – split into two halves called ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’ respectivelyThe first two tracks to arrive from the album were ‘Orphans’ and ‘Arabesque’.

“Orphans” featured a crowd of dancers getting in on the action and the band performing throughout the studio as the song comes together and they make it on stage.

Unlike previous appearances on Saturday Night Live, the band did not take part in any skits last night, although Chris Martin and co. have already demonstrated their comedy prowess this week. On Friday (November 1) the band released a parody press conference video to mark the announcement that they will launch new album ‘Everyday Life’ .

Last night, the album’s title track, “Everyday Life”, made its debut on Saturday Night Live.

Coldplay are releasing a new album, “Everyday Life”, on November 22nd via Parlophone/Atlantic and this week they shared its first two singles: “Orphans” and “Arabesque.” The album was announced via postcards sent to fans and has been touted as an experimental double album, with one side titled “Sunrise” and the other “Sunset.” “Orphans” is a bit Coldplay-by-numbers, but “Arabesque” is much more interesting. It’s nearly six minutes long and has an Afrobeat vibe, which makes sense considering Fela Kuti and is band contribute horns to it (it also features Stromae). If the rest of the album sounds more like “Arabesque” than “Orphans” then it could turn out to be pretty experimental by Coldplay standards.

We’ll have to wait and see. But for now “Arabesque” is one of their coolest, most interesting songs the band has released in years.“Orphans” and “Arabesque” are available now on a seven-inch single via Third Man. Coldplay will be performing on Saturday Night Livefor the sixth time on November 2nd.

The album’s cover art is “based around a 1919 photo of guitarist Jonny Buckland’s great-grandfather’s band.”

Coldplay released their last album, their seventh, A Head Full of Dreams, back in December 2015 via Parlophone/Atlantic and released a follow-up EP, Kaleidoscope EP, in July 2017,

We are very excited to report that Coldplay’s eighth album, Everyday Life, will be released on Friday, November 22 on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital formats. The 53-minute double album is divided into two halves, Sunrise and Sunset. The album’s cover image is based around a 1919 photo of Jonny’s great-grandfather’s band.

Coldplay will return in November with a new double album called Everyday Life. The band announced the news in a letter sent to members of its fan club. “One half is called ‘Sunrise’, the other ‘Sunset’. It comes out on November 22nd,” the band writes. “It is sort of how we feel about things.”

On Saturday (October. 19th), the band posted a cryptic five-second teaser to Instagram featuring an old-timey black-and-white photo of The Wedding Band & Dance Orchestra. As gentle orchestral music swelled in the background, “November 22nd, 1919” scrawled across the screen — the date of a solar eclipse seen by much of the world. (Earlier in the week, posters featuring the vintage graphic started popping up inexplicably around the globe.)

The band confirmed that the mysterious old-fashioned visuals pointed toward new music by sending fans typewritten notes directly in the mail on Monday (October. 21st). “Dear friends,” the note from Chris Martin and Co. reads, “my typing isn’t very good i’m sorry / I and we hope wherever you are you’re ok / for the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life / in the classifieds you might write ‘double album for sale, one very careful owner’ / one half is called ‘sunrise’, the other ‘sunset’ / it comes out 22nd november / it is sort of how we feel about things / we send much love to you from hibernation / Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will Champion, esq.”

A recent report described Coldplay’s forthcoming album as “arty” and “experimental” in nature. Also the band claimed that a more “mainstream” record would follow in 2020. It’s unclear whether Coldplay have simply combined these two records into one double release, or if they do indeed have more in store for fans next year.In anticipation, Coldplay updated their website and social media profiles with new branding. New publicity posters featuring an old-timey photo of the band and the date “November 22nd, 1919” have also been spotted in Berlin London,, Hong Kong, Madrid, Munich, São Paulo, and Sydney. The band also tweeted the image along with a brief snippet of music.Coldplay’s last album, A Head Full of Dreams, came out in December 2015. In the years since then, they’ve released a pair of EPs, 2017’s Kaleidoscope and 2018’s Global Citizen – EP 1, as well the Live in Buenos Aires live album and concert film.

An outpouring of grief swept the music industry at the passing of Tom Petty , as it was confirmed that Tom Petty died from a cardiac arrest at the age of 66.

The emoting continued at the Moda Center in Portland, Ore., as Coldplay held a minute of silence for the passing of a rock ‘n’ roll legend. They followed the silence with a cover of “Free Fallin’” as they were joined by Peter Buck of R.E.M.

The band joined figures from all over the industry in expressing their sadness at Petty’s passing.
