For the first time since 2015, Coldplay is ready to return with a new album. The band has revealed “Orphans,” the first song off of their upcoming ambitious LP, Everyday Life.
“Orphans” is bursting and blooming with vibrant color, the kind Chris Martin and company have become experts at. With a rubbery bassline and chorus of voices, the songs sparkles and glistens, once again building a beautiful world. The release is a RADIO.COM World Premiere, which means you can hear it here and stream it on the RADIO.COM app all throughout the day on Thursday October 24.
Earlier this week, Coldplay confirmed plans for the follow-up to 2015’s A Head Full Of Dreams, after select fans received a letter announcing the project. "For the last 100 years or thereabouts, we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life," it reads. “In the classifieds you might write ‘double album for sale, one very careful owner.'”
The double LP arrives on November 22, and although the imagery has been very old fashioned and aged, the sound so far is a continuation of Coldplay’s dreamy brand of hopeful ebullience. The LP is divided into two parts, Sunrise and Sunset. According to a tracklisting published by the band in the Sydney Morning Herald, “Orphans” is featured on the Sunset side of things.
On Thursday at the time of the release of "Orphans," the group also released the song "Arabesque" which is also now available everywhere.
A Head Full Of Dreams was released in December of 2015, and was followed by a massive stadium tour from the band. Coldplay also celebrated with a performance at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show in February of 2016.
