Now that we have the official track list, we can discuss each track individually!

What do you think the 5th track of Sunrise/Everyday life will sound like ?
:sunrise:

I have a feeling it could be a non-musical voice memo of one or several of their children asking their dad(s) something about the world

^ Totally agree! Chris mentioned voice memos being on the album and so far people who've heard the album don't talk about this one. So my guess is its one of the band members' kids? Or maybe its like a kid Chris recorded somewhere in the world talking about missing their daddy?

I feel like this could either be cute like "i miss you daddy" or it could be extremely dark, like "I lost my daddy" which would be a gut punch of a thing to put on an album...

Convinced that this is an interlude/voice memo.

Which makes me feel a lot better cause when I first heard the title, I thought Miley Cryus wrote them a track.

I'm absolutely convinced it'll be super dark and super sad and definitely some form of interlude with voice memos indeed. Coldplay have like zero chill anymore with this album, I mean now that we have Orphans, with such striking lyrics already, I could see them go for something as hard-hitting as this.
It could definitely about children losing their fathers, or fathers losing their children as well, it could very well be about fatherhood in general and not just from a child's point of view.

Both are dark, but one's obviously worse than the other.
Or, since we know this isn't an interlude (or will be very long), and clocks in at 4:58, perhaps it could tell a story, going from "I miss you daddy" to finding out. Heck, maybe even throw in the fun times at the beginning.

How could it possibly not have been a great song - i mean, it’s the 4th (real) track (without counting Sunrise as an interlude), standing in a tradition of Scientist, Fix You, True Love, Everglow each being the 4th track and all very beautifully made.

YES YES YES!!! Video coming out on Nov 22nd! Shortly after release date! Phil has this to say!

Phil Harvey: “Daddy isn’t a single in the traditional sense but we always wanted to make a video for it as the song feels like a story within itself. Asa and her team have done an incredible job in bringing the story to life.”

Upset it won’t be a single though....Promo I suppose?

Gotta say after multiple listens, I’m bored with this track.

The cheesy lyrics gets really evident after awhile. Sorry but Chris really slacked on this one with the words. Lol.

The lyrics are extremely simple, but I think in this case it fits the subject matter since it is from the perspective of a child. And even very simple lyrics can shine if they are sung in a believable and emotional way, which is the case here.
