Coldplay has shared the first two songs off their upcoming album, Everyday Life.

The first single is a track entitled “Orphans”.

The second, “Arabesque”, is defined as a “ballet posture in which the body is supported on one leg, with the other leg extended horizontally backward” and as “an ornamental design consisting of intertwined flowing lines, originally found in Arabic or Moorish decoration”. No detail goes overlooked when Coldplay makes an album, so it must play a larger role in the music.

Based on the two songs, it sounds like Coldplay’s back to their orchestral ways.

The band took a unique approach to announcing their eighth studio album – they sent typewriter-written mail by post to 500 fan club members.

The letter explained that the album is a century in the making by saying, “for the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called Everyday Life.”

No release date has been announced, but the band did sneakily disguise the album’s 16 song track-list in the North Wales Daily Post “classifieds” section.

Coldplay’s eighth studio album Everyday Life arrives on November 22 and is available for pre-order now.
