Coldplay paid a visit to Saturday Night Live on Nov. 2 to perform songs from their upcoming eighth album, Everyday Life.
For their first musical performance on the Kristen Stewart-hosted episode, the British group played their new uplifting track “Orphans.” Chris Martin kicked off the lively performance by walking solo through the studio before mingling with SNL audience members who turned out to be planted dancers.
Later in the show, Coldplay opted for a more traditional setup with dim lighting and Martin sitting at the piano for the soaring “Everyday Life.” Immediately after the episode, the new album’s title track became available for download and streaming on digital service providers. The group has also released a lyric video for “Everyday Life,” which can be viewed below.
Coldplay’s forthcoming album, Everyday Life, will be released Nov. 22 through Parlophone/Atlantic. The 53-minute double album is divided into two halves, Sunset and Sunrise.
