Coldplay Release New Double-Album, ‘Everyday Life,’ Eighth LP to Date

Coldplay officially released their eighth LP, Everyday Life Friday, a double-album featuring “Orphans” as heard on Alt 2K and more. It’s their first LP since 2015’s A Head Full of Dreams.

The album features two sides, “Sunrise” and “Sunset,” which the band explained as “sort of how we feel about things” in a statement regarding the new album.

“Some of it’s very personal, about 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 about what other people are going through,” Martin said in an interview with BBC Radio One’s Annie Mac. “It seems to me that one of things that might help people have a better time is to put themselves in other people’s shoes, whether that’s these kids who have to leave Syria, or who grew up in Baltimore, or whatever it might be. Rather than judging from afar, maybe to think ‘I wonder what it’s like to be there.'”

In a separate interview with BBC News, Martin said the band would not tour in support of the album until they find out how the tour can be “carbon neutral” and “not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial.”
