Coldplay Release Music Video For ‘Orphans’ from New Album

Coldplay have released the music video for ‘Orphans’, the first single from their eighth album ‘Everyday Life’.

 

The joyous track debuted yesterday on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show to a flurry of excited fans.

 

Fans were treated with a Q&A from drummer Will Champion in YouTube chat before the video premiered. He spoke about the recording process, filming the music video and the future!

 

One viewer asked what it was like to shoot the new music video: “The shoot was great fun. Having dancers always brings amazing energy to a video shoot”.

 

Champion spoke about the “rolling rig” featured in the music video: “I have to admit to feeling a little bit wobbly for a few hours after being in the rotating room (‘rolling rig’). It was quite disorientating”.

 

Will also confirmed a filming location of the video: “Bits of this video were filmed on El Matador Beach in Malibu”.

 

Another fan asked if Will had any main vocal features on the new album: “no, just backing vocals on Champion Of The World. It is a great title, though!”

 

When asked about the recording process, Will replied with: “The creative process involved six short but very intense sessions over the last year or so. It was incredibly exciting!”

 

Will also expressed his love for director Mat Whitecross: “It’s always a pleasure to work with Mat, who directed the video”.

 

Surprising to all of us, Will said “Yes, we still have a couple more surprises up our sleeves”. TELL US WHAT SURPRISES WILL!?!?

 

The famous drummer also joked about his WiFi: “I’m watching at home, on terrible WiFi!” 

 

 

‘Orphans’ is taken off Coldplay’s eighth album Everyday Life, which will be released on Friday, November 22 via Parlophone / Atlantic on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital formats.

 

Orphans and Arabesque, are available to download / stream now!
