Following the release of their new album Everyday Life, Coldplay dropped by BBC Radio 1’s famed Maida Vale studios in London to deliver an intimate performance.
Led by frontman Chris Martin, the band appeared on “Future Sounds with Annie Mac”, where they kicked things off with a cover of Crystal Waters’ 1991 “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)”.
Chatting with host Annie Mac, Martin explained that he got the idea after hearing Belgian hip-hop star Stromae sampling the track during his last tour.
With Coldplay putting a far different spin on the song than Waters’ original, the song ended hilariously when the band couldn’t figure out how to end it
“Let’s fade it out boys, let’s fade it out now,” Martin told the band before addressing the host. “Annie, you better rescue us because we don’t know how to end this!”
That wasn’t the only performance during the band’s appearance, with Coldplay also performing new tracks “Arabesque” and “Orphans”, along with a few others. Watch:
