Coldplay make long-awaited return with new album, ‘Everyday Life’

The British band’s first full-length in four years.

Coldplay have released their much-anticipated eighth studio album, Everyday Life.

The 16-track double album, which is split evenly into two parts—Sunrise and Sunset—features contributions from Jacob Collier, Tiwa Savage, Norah Shaqur and more. Belgian singer Stromae and Afrobeat musician Femi Kuti also feature on the previously released single “Arabesque.”

Sunset track “Companion of the World” features an interpolation of “Los Angeles, Be Kind,” written by late Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison. The band also previewed the album with “Daddy” and “Orphans.”

“[The album] is our reaction to the perceived negativity that’s everywhere,” frontman Chris Martin previously explained to NME. “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.”

Everyday Life is Coldplay’s first full-length since 2015’s A Head Full of Dreams. Last year, the band released Global Citizen—EP 1 under the moniker Los Unidades.
