Since the release of their seventh studio album “A Head Full of Dreams” in 2015, the globally renowned band Coldplay has not put out new music in four years. The band later headlined for the Super Bowl 50 Halftime show in 2016. 

Recently the band began hinting new music through typed and autographed letters, posters in the streets of Madrid, and a newspaper ad in the UK. Band members, Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion, later confirmed the authenticity of these promos and announced the release of their eighth studio album entitled “Everyday Life.”

“Everyday Life” is set to release on Nov. 22. The album is divided into two parts “Sunrise” and “Sunset,” containing a total of 16 tracks. In an interview with BBC Radio, Chris Martin admits that, as a band, they feel they have reached a point where they can speak freely. 

“Some of it’s very personal but real things in my life and some of it’s about things that I see, or we see, and some of it’s about trying to empathize with what other people are going through,” Chris said in regards to the new album.

Coldplay has since released two tracks, from the album, entitled “Orphans” and “Arabesque.”  The band debuted their third single, “Everyday Life,” in performance as the musical guests on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 2.

The band also announced a live stream broadcast from Amman, Jordan on Nov. 22, where they will perform the entire double album. Airing on YouTube, “Coldplay: Everyday Life – Live in Jordan” has two portions imitating the album’s concept. The first half of the event is during sunrise at 4 a.m. GMT and the second half is during sunset at 2 p.m. GMT. 

After four years without new music, Coldplay is coming back stronger and ready to give fans new songs to fall in love with.
