To promote their upcoming album, Everyday Life, the four-piece rock outfit played the title track live in its worldwide premiere.
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.
Coldplay’s highly anticipated eighth studio album will serve as the followup to 2015’s A Head Full of Dreams.
The album Everyday Life is now available to be pre-ordered through the official Coldplay website.
The 16-track record will be released by Parlaphone Records worldwide on Friday, Nov. 22.
