Coldplay debuts new song, 'Everyday Life,' on 'SNL'

Coldplay debuts title track of upcoming album, 'Everyday Life,' on 'SNL'

For the sixth time since their debut performance in 2001, Coldplay appeared on Saturday Night Live (SNL) over the weekend.

To promote their upcoming album, Everyday Life, the four-piece rock outfit played the title track live in its worldwide premiere.

The Yellow rockers were introduced backstage by host Kristen Stewart before performing a heavily choreographed rendition of one of their latest singles, Orphans.

Everyday Life, however, came as a surprise to dedicated fans, as it had not yet been released, heard or even hinted at.

The stripped-back, emotion-fuelled ballad featured frontman Chris Martin on the piano. He was backed by the rest of the seven-time Grammy Award-winning band.

Following the band’s performance, the single Everyday Life was released digitally across the globe. It was also paired with a lyric video on Coldplay’s official YouTube account.

Coldplay announced that they will be performing the upcoming double album in its entirety at a two-part concert in Jordan on Nov. 22, the day of its release.

The first half — which the band refers to as “Sunrise” — will be performed at 4 a.m. GMT (11 p.m. ET), and “Sunset” will be played at 2 p.m. GMT (9 a.m. ET).

The entire concert will be streamed live on YouTube.
