Oh, the source was the paywalled newspaper

 

"When Chris Martin greets people, he does so with gusto — leaping and bounding across the floor of the Rivoli Ballroom in southeast London like the Tigger of pop. The Coldplay singer introduces himself with a bear hug and a smile. Outside, cold morning rain lashes down, while, inside the gorgeous 1950s landmark, the biggest band in the world is shooting a lavish video for the new song Cry Cry Cry, from their just-released eighth album, Everyday Life.

 

“We’re good on haze,” says the video’s director, the actress Dakota Johnson, Martin’s girlfriend, who is behind the camera for the first time and controlling the smoke..."

I agree on church first listen I was like huh ? I couldn’t even relate it to the rest of the album but I freakin love it lol

I thought it was a bit of a weird song lyrically at first but it has grown on me a lot and since that performance in Jordan it has become one of the best songs on the album for me... even though it's obvious that Chris was lip-syncing that morning, haha.

 

Sunrise + Church make for a spectacular opening that's better than Don't Panic, better than MX/Hurts Like Heaven, better than Always In My Head, even better than AHFOD (the song). The y just set the mood so well.

 

Please!

Pleeeeeeease!

Chris said during the concert in Jordan that the last gig of the Everyday Life era will be the one happening in London on Monday.

thought it was just radio? tv broadcast would be better.

 

US is letting coldplay down big time with this release. would be great to get #2 the way it is selling so far.

If you notice in detail the booklet, the title of WOTW/POTP is written as follows: WOTW3/4POTP

 

Maybe that's Chris' way of saying that the song was 3/4 finished. :joy:

 

In any case, I transcribe the final version of the lyrics as sung by Chris yesterday.

 

In a world gone wrong

How can I be strong?

Wonder of the world, power of the people

 

In a world of fright

How do I get it right?

Wonder of the world, power of the people

 

Our world tonight

Is turning right

With the strength of an eagle

Our world tonight

I see the light

Wonder of the world, power of the people

The audio recording of the YouTube broadcasts is a true gem.

In comparison with the album, it has so many gorgeous moments when you can hear the whole band more clearly.

A music video for 'Cry Cry Cry' also obviously means the song will be the next (promo) single. Man... 6 singles already!?

I don't think there are any singles in the traditional sense other than orphans. Everything else seem to be promo releases for the album. Let's see what they perform at Graham Norton. That would be a single I'd say.

I guess that Flags originally occupied Orphans spot on the album.

But then Orphans was written, so Flags was ditched and it became a bonus track for Japan.

Okay, since it's clear at this point that Coldplay will barely be doing any more shows for this era, it makes me wonder...

 

When they eventually do decide to tour again, whether that's in 2021 or later, what songs from Everyday Life will they use in the setlist?

 

I think Orphans is a no-brainer because of that chorus and that AHFOD-like stadium-filling sound. Perhaps they'd play Champion of the World because honestly it sounds like MX to me. Guns, Eko, and Old Friends would be great on the C-stage and Everyday Life could fit nicely if they want a sweet piano ballad like Everglow. But honestly I can't see the other 10 songs making an appearance on a stadium tour, especially if the tour has a bright and colorful aesthetic like MX and AHFOD did. The songs are so dark and sad. Not that tried and tested songs like Fix You aren't also emotional, but that song becomes a true anthem after the second chorus. I think these are great songs in their own right, but they just aren't fit for a stadium.

 

What do you all think?

:sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

Maybe the last full length gig, assuming they only play a few songs at the Maida Vale Studios appearance on Wednesday...

https://coldplaying.com/forum/index.php?threads/27-11-2019-coldplay-at-maida-vale-studios.126060/

 

It's sad though... it seems they'll be gone as quickly as they came out of their "hibernation."

"One minute they arrive, next you know they're gone..."

Those added lyrics are great!

 

And yeah, I guess it's also possible that the 3/4 is an intentional typo because there are plenty of others throughout the booklet :joy:

My guess:

 

Church

Daddy

Orphans

Champion of the World

Everyday Life

 

Possible sporadic appearance:

 

Trouble in Town

Arabesque

Eko

Cry Cry Cry

I want them to play BrokEn acoustic with just Will on piano and him singing back and forth with Chris... but I somewhat doubt they'd try that :weary_face:

I want them to play Trouble In Town during the future gigs. It sounded awesome during the live stream. Probably my favorite performance of the entire thing.

Maybe someone mentioned this before (sorry if it is the case), but I noticed on Amazon.Fr that there's a Clean version of the album ??

Without the F words ?

Is that a physical CD? It could just be a download.

 

There’s a clean version on Spotify and on iTunes.

All I’m gonna say is that if the next time I see a Coldplay concert and they don’t play Arabesque then what’s the point of living really...
