Coldplay have announced the global release of their eighth album, Everyday Life, due for release on Friday, November 22 via Parlophone / Atlantic on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital formats. The 53-minute double album is divided into two halves, Sunrise and Sunset.
Two songs from the album, Orphans and Arabesque, premiered as a double Hottest Record In The World by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1. Both tracks are available to download / stream now, including lyric videos for Orphans and Arabesque. A 7-inch vinyl single featuring both songs is also available now via Third Man Records.
Both tracks were produced by The Dream Team. Arabesque features vocals from Stromae and horns by Femi Kuti and his band.
The album’s cover image is based around a 1919 photo of guitarist Jonny Buckland’s great-grandfather’s band. The artwork was teased last week in mysterious posters and billboards all around the world, from São Paulo to Tokyo.
The first details of Everyday Life were revealed earlier last week when the band mailed typed, hand-signed notes to 500 Coldplay fans around the world.
The album’s track listing – unveiled via classified ads in newspapers is as follows:
