The tracks are called “Daddy” and “Champion of the World”, and serve as the album’s fourth and fifth singles overall. They were released on Wednesday.
“Daddy” dropped alongside a visually stunning music video directed by Åsa Lucander and produced by Aardman Animations (“Wallce & Gromit”). The enticing feature also included puppetry from practical effects studio, Brunskill & Grimes.
While “Champion of the World” came with only a lyric video, it was written by Coldplay’s Chris Martin as a tribute to the late-Frightened Rabbit frontman, Scott Hutchison.
Martin, 42, utilized Colplay’s official Twitter account to write about Hutchison’s contibutions.
“Scott had a song called ‘Los Angeles Be Kind’, which I love,” he wrote.
“When I first heard it, I thought it was going to go one way; but it went another. Anyway Champion of the World is the song that came from following the other path, and that’s why Scott is a co-writer on this song.”
Martin also dedicated it to the fallen musician as a birthday present.
“Today is also his birthday,” he wrote. “So happy birthday, Scott, and thank you for your beautiful music, wherever you are.”View link »
