Coldplay Drops New Music Video for “Trouble In Town”, Performs at NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
- British rock band Coldplay premiered a new music video for “Trouble In Town” directed by Aoife McArdle, following previous video for “Champion Of The World”.
The song is included on their eighth studio album “Everyday Life”, which was released last November.
The track is about how non-white people are treated in western countries while they are not even safe in their own countries. The track features a tape at the end of the song, real audio of policeman brutalizing and racially profiling a non-white innocent man.
Before the release of the video, The band appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert to perform five songs “Cry Cry Cry”, “Broken”, “Champion Of The World” from “Everyday Life”, “Viva La Vida” and “1999” (Prince cover).
“Viva La Vida” was released in 2008 from their fourth album “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends”. “1999” was released by Prince from his 1982 album of the same name.
The album “Everyday Life” is their first album in for years. Frontman Chris Martin told Rolling Stone last December, “Some people don’t really like what we do, and that’s OK. God bless them. There are so many other things to listen to, and why worry about that? This album may sell this many, and we might win this, we might be band of the year or conversely worst band of the year. That’s great, wonderful. But ultimately, My job, I realize, from seeing Bruce [Springsteen] is to be totally and unashamedly of service to the people that are listening.”
