Coldplay are taking a stand for gun control in their upcoming single “Guns”.
The British rock band debuted a teaser for their forthcoming album’s opening track, all about putting an end to gun violence.
“Take it from the playgrounds and take it from the bums/ Take it from the hospitals and squeeze it from the slums,” frontman Chris Martin croons. “All the kids make pistols with their fingers and their thumbs/ Advertise a revolution, arm it when it comes/ We’re cooking up the zeros, we’ve been doing all the sums/ The judgment of this court is… we need more guns.”
In late October, ahead of their performance on Global’s “Saturday Night Live”, Coldplay announced the tracklisting of their upcoming double album Everyday Life in the classifieds of the Sydney Morning Herald. Showing “Guns” as the opening song for the “Sunset” side of the record.
Everyday Life will drop Nov. 22.
