Coldplay Performs “Orphans” at The Natural History Museum & “Viva La Vida” at The Citadel
- British rock band Coldplay has dropped two live videos for “Orphans” and “Viva La Vida”.
The band performed “Orphans” at The Natural History Museum in London on November 25th.
The song is include on their latest album “Everyday Life”, which was released on November 22nd.
Frontman Chris Martin said of the song, “Sometimes we just trust our gut feeling and “Orphans” was the last song to arrive and it sort of demanded to be released first. I can’t really explain it. Maybe it’s because it’s the newest and we really like it. Could be as simple as that. Or also, the song is very unafraid of itself; it’s confident in itself and I really like that about it.”
“Viva La Vida” was performed at The Citadel in Amman, Jordan on November 23rd.
The song was released in 2008 from their fourth album “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends”. The track has sold over over 7.1 million copies worldwide. Also, the song won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 2009.
At that time, Chris Martin said, “I think everything we’re trying to do at the moment is about not starting again so much as breaking down what we’ve built up before and trying to build something different and hopefully better, or worse in a good way. And this song is one of our favorites, because none of us are doing anything on it that we’ve ever done before. But we really enjoy playing it. The longer you go on as a band, the harder it is to surprise yourself.”
