About Everyday Life

Everyday Life is the eighth studio album by British rock band Coldplay. It was released on 22 November 2019 by Parlophone in the United Kingdom and Atlantic Records in the United States. It is a double album, released as a single CD, with the first half titled Sunrise and the other Sunset (similar to X&Y, which is split into an "X" half and a "Y" half). The release coincided with Coldplay: Everyday Life - Live in Jordan, in which performances of each half of the album were live streamed from Amman, Jordan, at sunrise and sunset, respectively.Many returning producers and collaborators joined the band's efforts including "The Dream Team" (Rik Simpson, Dan Green, Bill Rahko), Davide Rossi, and Emily Lazar. Speculation about the album's existence persisted since their previous record, A Head Full of Dreams, as rumours circulated that Coldplay would disband. It is the first album by the band to feature profanity (on the tracks "Trouble In Town", "Arabesque" and "Guns") and is also their second studio album not to be supported by a major tour, the other being Ghost Stories (2014).Everyday Life received generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised its experimental alt rock direction, the shift to politically charged lyrics, and varied song styles in contrast to their old roots with albums like Parachutes and Viva la Vida. However, some critics felt that the album lacked thematic consistency. Commercially, Everyday Life earned the band their eighth number-one album on the UK Albums Chart and their seventh top-ten album on the Billboard 200 in the US. It was supported by four singles: "Orphans" and "Arabesque" in October 2019, "Everyday Life" in November 2019 and "Champion of the World" in February 2020. At the 63rd Grammy Awards the album garnered two nominations, one for Best Recording Package and the other for Album of the Year. It is the band's first Album of the Year nomination since Viva la Vida and second overall.
