On Tuesday night, Chris Martin joined his band Coldplay on stage in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and opened the first show of their North American tour with a touching tribute.
Coldplay is putting a personal stamp on their latest release.
To announce new album “Everyday Life,” out Nov. 22, the British pop-rockers sent out old-timey letters to their fans, many of whom shared pictures of the surprise mailings on Twitter Monday.
“Dear friends,” read the notes, which are adorned with golden suns and moons, and appear to be hand-signed by frontman Chris Martin and bandmates. “My typing isn’t very good, I’m sorry. I and we hope wherever you are, you’re OK.”
“For the last 100 years or thereabouts, we have been working on a thing called ‘Everyday Life,'” the letter continues. “In the classifieds, you might write ‘double album for sale, one very careful owner.’ One half is called ‘Sunrise,’ the other ‘Sunset.’ It comes out (Nov. 22). It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation.”
Coldplay first teased the album over the weekend, when they posted a cryptic preview video to Instagram, featuring a grainy black-and-white photograph and orchestral music.
“Everyday Life” marks the Grammy winners’ first full-length album since 2015’s “A Head Full of Dreams.” They headlined the Super Bowl halftime show with Beyonce and Bruno Mars the following year, and released their “Kaleidescope EP” in 2017 featuring collaborations with The Chainsmokers and Big Sean.
