Coldplay Releases New Album “Everyday Life”: Streaming
- British rock band Coldplay released their eighth studio album “Everyday Life” on November 22nd. It is their first LP in four years.
The album consists of two parts called Sunrise and Sunset. The band shared a live video for “Everyday Life Live in Jordan - Sunrise Performance” on YouTube before the release of the album. The band performed songs from the album at sunrise and sunset in Jordan on November 21st.
But the band announced their tour will be on hold, due to concerns over the environmental impact of concerts.
"We're not touring this album," frontman Chris Martin told BBC News. "We're taking time over the next year or two, to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial."
The band wanted their future tours to "have a positive impact". "Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally. We would be disappointed if it's not carbon neutral. The hardest thing is the flying side of things. But, for example, our dream is to have a show with no single use plastic, to have it largely solar powered. We've done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it's no so much taking as giving?" Chris Martin said.
He said the new record reflected the band's global perspective. "If you've had the privilege of travelling around the world, you know we're all from the same place," he said.
"In a very gentle British way, this record is us saying we don't feel different from any human on earth."
He said songs from Everyday Life had been inspired in part by BBC News reports about an Afghan gardener and a Nigerian hymn composer. “Journalism at its best finds these individual stories that reinforce our shared humanity,” he explained.
