Coldplay’s New Album ‘Everyday Life’ Part 1 Review
Coldplay is back on the news and music playlist after the release of their new album Everyday Life. On November 22nd, the band performed the complete album, which is a two-part playlist in its entirety in Amman Citadel, Jordan. The two parts of the album are “Sunrise” and “Sunset“. In a creative display, those are also the times when Chris Martin and the company performed their two albums. Stromae, Femi Kuti and others joined Coldplay for the performance as the band brought their 8th album to life. Without further ado, let us take a brief review on what we thought about it!
Coldplay’s ‘Everyday Life’ Shows The Band Will Carry On
A whole album video somewhere around 30 minutes is up on Coldplay’s YouTube channel. With sunrise in the background, Chris began his Coldplay magic. You can watch the first part, Sunrise, from below:
We agree with NME that Chris Martin and his band mates took on a theme of gun control, racism, war, love, police brutality and climate change. The opening Coldplay album, Sunrise, sets the tone by first playing a war-time strings music playback in its song Sunrise. The violins start with a mournful timbre that eventually turns into a hopeful and positive vibe.
Church comes up next, which can is a typical Coldplay song. Rhythmic, moving, beautiful pop music, nothing that we cannot expect from one of the major bands of this era. Here, Chris and the boys are joined by Norah Shaqur who sings Arabic verse that translates to “I worship in your church, baby, always.” This might be pointing towards global acceptance of the two worlds of East and the West. A take on acceptance of all religions and thoughts.
‘Everyday Life‘ Is About Police Brutality
Trouble in Town from Coldplay’s part 1 of the newest album talks about unfair justice. “Because they hung my brother brown” and later in this art, there is a small argument with a person of color and a police officer going down exactly the way you think it did. This is a point towards US law enforcement that has a record of racist misconduct. The subtle guitar play by Buckland with keys ends the song at a low note. Keeps us guessing what if the world was a different place.
“BrokEn” is Chris Martin’s main alongside a choir who all echo his prayer for guidance, asking the Lord to shine a light on us all. Daddy got all of our hearts in a twist. It shows the heartbreak of a crumbling relationship of a daughter with her father. The soft piano work sets us off in a zone. A few minutes in the song and you already find yourself visualizing the sad child asking their dad if he is okay and out there. Coldplay’s new album is such a meaningful contribution to this world with so many social issues.
We Review Coldplay’s Album As A Call For Unity Among Human Race
When it comes to Arabesque, you can hear the song start off at a marketplace and quickly shifting its focus towards a brass arrangement playing a hulking, poppy, and a progressive rock tune. Here we can see Belgian superstar singer Stromae and Palestinian group Le Trio Joubran. This marks the unity among the human race, or perhaps the need of. PopSongProfessor supports our claim by telling that Coldplay’s new album tried bringing our focus on what unites us as humanity, This is supported by Arabesque’s “and we share the same blood” verse lyrics. We all want the same things: to be accepted, loved, and when we don’t get them it hurts us.
Stromae comes on and metaphorically talks about the difference between different races. He says that we are like two drops of water, built exactly with the same substance, even though on the outside we look different.
Yellow, Viva La Vida, Paradise, Chris Martin and Co.’s songs have topped charts many times. The new Coldplay album “Everyday Life” looks promising as well.
