Coldplay are set to debut two new tracks on BBC Radio 1 tonight.

The band will give a first spin to 'Orphans' and 'Arabesque' from their new double album 'Everyday Life', as Chris Martin speaks to Annie Mac about the record - set for release on 22nd November.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the album, he explains: “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. So in a way, it’s just trying to make sense of things, saying what we feel and what we see.”

“The truth is there was something about our last tour that made me at peace with speaking openly and not minding if people disagree... This has been the first time we’ve felt like ‘We’ve got to this place as a band so there’s really nothing to think about career-wise.’ You can just speak completely freely and let all the colours of life come through.

“Some of it’s very personal, about real things in my life, and some of it’s about things that I see or we see, and some of it’s about trying to empathise about what other people are going through.

“It seems to me that one of things that might help people have a better time is to put themselves in other people’s shoes, whether that’s these kids who have to leave Syria, or who grew up in Baltimore, or whatever it might be. Rather than judging from afar, maybe to think ‘I wonder what it’s like to be there.’”

Yesterday, Coldplay leaked the full tracklisting for 'Everyday Life' via small ads in local newspaper the North Wales Daily Post. You can check that out below. Hear Chris Martin on Radio 1’s Future Sounds tonight from 7.30pm.

Sundara Karma: "We want to get a lot of new music out; no time like the present"

Sundara Karma have fast become one of the most interesting, inventive band of their class. With a new EP, some all-star collaboration and an outlook that constantly moves forward, the journey to album three is afoot.
BENEE: "2020 has been a bloody shitter"

A rare bright point in a pretty damn difficult year, BENEE's arrival has been a serotonin shot in the arm. With her debut album finally here, the future looks brighter already.

The wait for shame's second album may seem to have lasted longer than it actually has. as they stand on the edge of a huge 2021, we get ready for a record that isn't supposed to be funny, but...
