Coldplay share snippet of new song ‘Guns’

Coldplay is ready to get serious about gun control on their latest single.

On Wednesday (Nov. 6), the British band released a 30-second teaser from their upcoming new single “Guns.” Getting in touch with their inner Millennials and Gen Z-ers, the group took to Instagram to give fans a sneak peek at the new track.

Unlike its predecessors, “Guns” finds the foursome going in a folkier direction, a departure from the bubbly-fun sound of their previously released songs.

Listen to the 30-second snippet above.

“Guns” will join “Orphans,” “Arabesque,” and title track “Everyday Life” on Coldplay’s eighth studio album, Everyday Life. The upcoming release will be divided into two parts; Sunrise and Sunset.

Everyday Life is the long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s A Head Full of Dreams. Since then, Coldplay has released several EPs, including Kaleidoscope, Live in Buenos Aires, and Global Citizen-EP 1.

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.

To coincide with the album’s release, Coldplay previously announced that they will join forces with YouTube Originals for two exclusive performances. Titled “Coldplay: Everyday Life – Live in Jordan,” the event will stream live from Jordan on Nov. 22, the day of the album’s release.

The quartet’s performance will be divided into two; the Sunrise and Sunset. The Sunrise album will be performed at 4am GMT, while Sunset will take at 2pm GMT.

For fans who would like to be part of the broadcast, Coldplay just revealed how you can do that. All you need to do is watch this video and follow the direction.

See. Simple.
