Coldplay have shared two new songs, “Orphans” and “Arabesque”.
The tracks were premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show Future Sounds few hours ago. Both singles come from their new eighth studio album “Everyday life”, which is set for release on November 22. It is the follow-up to the 2015 album “A head full of dreams“.
Produced by Rik Simpson, Daniel Green & Bill Rahko, “Orphans” is an epic pop-rock song in perfect style Coldplay while “Arabesque” marks a return to the band’s roots with vibes more dark and gritty. It features vocals from Belgian rapper-pop star Stromae and Femi Kuti.
“Everyday life” is a double album that consists of two parts: “Sunrise” and “Sunset”.
An experimental project as frontman Chris Martin explains. “It’s all about just being human. Every day is great and every day is terrible…It just feels kind of free. There’s so much life bursting out on the planet”. He added: “The album is our reaction to the perceived negativity that’s everywhere. And there is a lot of trouble, but there’s also so much positivity and so much great life happening. So in a way, it’s just trying to make sense of things, saying what we feel and what we see”.
