Coldplay announced the tracklist for its upcoming album Everyday Life through local adverts in newspapers worldwide. They started from the North Wales Daily Post newspaper in the United Kingdom.
The band has also placed adverts in the classified sections of Devon’s Express and Echo in Britain. While also appearing in Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, New Zealand’s Otago Daily Times and France’s Le Monde.
The adverts have been placed in areas from where the band members hail. The lead guitarist Jonny Buckland is from North Wales. Whereas, frontman Chris Martin is from Exeter.
Furthermore, the band first announced their new album through a typewritten letter to a fan. Lena Tayara shared a photo of the note on Twitter but believed it to be fake or a prank.
The note read, “For the last 100 years or thereabouts, we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life.”
The tracklist for their new double-album includes 18 tracks. The songs are titled ‘Sunrise,’ Guns,’ ‘Orphans,’ ‘Daddy, ‘Church,’ ‘When I Need a Friend,’ ‘Trouble in Town,’ ‘BrokEn’, ‘WOTW / POTP’, ‘Arabesque’, ‘Champions of the World’, ‘Èkó’, ‘Cry Cry Cry’, ‘Old Friends’, ‘بني آدم’, ‘Champion of the World’, and ‘Everyday Life.’
Talking about his upcoming songs on BBC Radio 1, Chris Martin revealed, “It’s all about just being human. Every day is great and every day is terrible…It just feels kind of free. There’s so much life bursting out on the planet.”
“[The album] is our reaction to the perceived negativity that’s everywhere. And there is a lot of trouble, but there’s also so much positivity and so much great life happening.” Further adding, “So in a way, it’s just trying to make sense of things, saying what we feel and what we see.”
Coldplay’s new album Everyday Life will release on 22nd November.
