3 Songs, 9 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

In this exclusive EP, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland enlist producers Rik Simpson, Dan Green, and Bill Rahko (known collectively as “The Dream Team”) for a stripped-back performance of highlights from 2019’s Everyday Life. Whether it’s adding backup singers to the doo-wop of “Cry Cry Cry” and the gospel of “BrokEn” or a string section to the anthemics of “Champion of the World,” every choice offers new perspective on the power of Coldplay. “I think for me and for us, music is inherently cathartic,” Martin says. “Something about just being within the song helps ease whatever craziness or pain. It naturally starts to uplift me.”
