If it seemed like an inordinately long time since we last officially heard new music from Coldplay, you wouldn't be wrong. Their last world dominating LP, 'Head Full Of Dreams' dropped 4 years ago, and in that time only a stand alone single under a pseudonym slipped out.  So what's the hold up? Apparently a ton of new tracks, set to be released November 22nd.

Entitled 'Everyday Life', the band's new record will be a double LP with two halves marked as 'Sunrise' and 'Sunset', an incredibly Coldplay move if there ever was one. Recent reports in both The Star and The Sun have indicated that the record's two halves will split the healthy amount of material into one commercial side, along with another more "experimental" offering, though no word on what that means exactly.  Other rumors abound include a possible collaboration with French house overlords Daft Punk, who's previous team ups include work with The Weeknd, Kanye West, and Jay-Z, though no guests on the record have officially been confirmed.

The news follows a cryptic wheat paste campaign in cities around the world which found the band photographed in black and white with the November date and the year 1919... no word on what that indicates, though I for one am not ruling out a ragtime tune on there somewhere.  Announced via a letter sent to fans, the band writes "dear friends, my typing isn't very good, i'm sorry. i and we hope wheverer you are you're ok.  for the last 100 years or thereabouts we have been working on a thing called Everyday LIfe.  in the classifies you might write "double album for sale, one very careful owner".  on half is called 'sunrise, the other 'sunset'. it comes out 22 november.  it is sort of how we feel about things.  we send much love to you from hibernation.  chris, jonny, guy, and Will Champion esq".  Who knows what the all lower case was about there, but hey, see it for yourself below.

The update arrives on the heels of word that Chris Martin will appear on Beck's upcoming LP 'Hyperlife', so consider the Alt elder statesman for an appearance on the package as well. In the meantime revisit an all time deep cut from the band while we await new sounds.
