Coldplay has just released a new single after debuting the song, “Everyday Life”, on “Saturday Night Live”.
Their second performance of the night saw frontman Chris Martin behind the piano for the new song’s TV debut, the title track from Coldplay’s forthcoming album Everyday Life, set to drop on Nov. 22.
Immediately after the “SNL” live performance, the band released the studio version of “Everyday Life”.
Earlier in the show, the band performed their recently released track “Orphans”, with Martin beginning by strumming on an acoustic guitar backstage before heading into the audience, which appeared to be made up of a combination of dancers brought in for the performance and regular audience members who had no idea what was going on.
When Martin made his way onto the stage, the dancers followed, creating a wild scene on the jam-packed stage.
Coldplay announced the new album in a very unique way, mailing out 500 typed-up, hand-signed letters to select fans.
“In the classifieds you might write ‘double album’ for sale, one very careful owner,” reads the note. “One half is called ‘sunrise’, the other ‘sunset’. It is out 22 November. It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation. Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will Champion.”
