It looks like the joke is on all of us because Coldplay just released not one, but two new songs from their forthcoming studio album.
On Thursday (Oct. 24), just a few hours after the tracklisting for their eighth studio album was released, the group premiered two songs from Everyday Life. The first track is titled “Arabesque” and is featured on Sunrise while the second song is titled “Orphans” and can be found on Sunset.
Both tracks were produced by The Dream Team. “Arabesque” features vocals from Stromae and horns by Femi Kuti and his band.
“Arabesque” can be streamed above while “Orphans” can be found here.
A 7-inch vinyl featuring both tracks is currently available for purchase through Third Man Records.
To coincide with the release of the two singles, Coldplay has also announced that the official music video for “Orphans” will be released tomorrow (Oct. 25) at 8 a.m. EST, so keep an eye out for that.
Everyday Life is the long-awaited follow-up to the group’s smash 2015 record, A Head Full of Dreams. Since then, they have released several EPs, including Kaleidoscope and Live in Buenos Aires.
Everyday Life is due out Nov. 22 through Parlophone / Atlantic Records. Pre-orders are currently available for purchase and include several bundles to pick from, including CDs, vinyls, cassettes, and digital formats. The double record will reportedly have a runtime of 53 minutes.
Before releasing the much-anticipated record, Coldplay will take the stage at “Saturday Night Live” for the sixth time. The quartet will take over the sketch comedy show’s stage on Nov. 2.
