Coldplay have previewed the music video ‘Daddy’ and lyric video for ‘Champion of the World’ from the ‘Everyday Life’ album.
‘Daddy’ features a video directed by Asa Lucander. “I knew when I had the opportunity to pitch on this project that is was going to be a very special one. A few minutes into listening to the track Daddy – It spoke to me in a way that stories and visual images began to dance in front of me. And when this happens you know that you are on to something very special indeed. I tend to get drawn to emotional stories and this was certainly one I wanted to tell.”
Of ‘Champion of the World’, co-written with Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit, Chris Martin said, “Scott had a song called Los Angeles Be Kind, which I love. When I first heard it, I thought it was going to go one way; but it went another. Anyway Champion Of The World is the song that came from following the other path, and that’s why Scott is a co-writer on this song. Today is also his birthday. So happy birthday Scott and Thankyou for your beautiful music, wherever you are.”
Last month Coldplay premiered ‘Orphans’ and ‘Arabesque’.
‘Everyday Life’ is the eighth studio album for Coldplay. The double album will be separated into two parts ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’.
‘Arabesque’, the other already released song was co-written with ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Lost’ writer Drew Goddard, Belgian rapper Stromae and Nigerian musician Olufela Kuti.
Coldplay “Everyday Life’ will be released on 22 November 2019.
