EDITORS’ NOTES

Coldplay has always known how to spark feelings, through gestures big and small. On “Orphans”—a new anthem from their forthcoming double LP Everyday Life—Chris Martin joins forces with a children’s choir for a moonlit run through iridescent guitars and airy bass notes and skyward choruses and “bombs going boom-boom-boom-boom.” It was recorded in a heatwave, Martin says, as the band was nearing completion of the album. “We were thinking for a long time about all the people, young people in particular, who are caught up in political or geographic craziness, who really just want to get on with life, and laugh and love and follow their own dreams and not someone else’s.” Listen to “Orphans” and “Everyday Life” now, then add Coldplay’s upcoming album to your library.
