Since the end of their last world tour, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Coldplay[/lastfm] has been on hiatus, with exception to a few shows, to create their next Grammy winning album. With albums like X&Y and Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, it will be difficult to create something more thrilling and exciting considering how popular those albums are.
That being said Coldplay is set to release their new single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” on Friday June 3 to test the waters. “We’re about to play a bunch of summer festivals so it’s as good a time as any to put out a new song.” says [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Will Champion[/lastfm], the drummer of Coldplay. The new song, like the rest on the new album, is said to be “more acoustic” and “more intimate” than what Coldplay is known for.
This new unnamed album is influenced by “old school American graffiti” according to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Martin[/lastfm] who hopes that the rebellious spirit that spray painters have will come out in the bands new album.
“It’s about being free to be yourself and express yourself among negative surroundings. Being able to speak out or follow your passion, even if everybody seems against it.”
Their next tour is set to hit every continent in the world (with exception to Antarctica of course). From festivals like Jammin’ Festival in Venice Italy, to Fuji Rock in Neaba Japan, to Splendour In The Grass Festival in Woodford Australia, to Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago IL, Coldplay will literally rock the world.
With Coldplay’s fifth studio album planned to come out this fall, the release of their new single is surely going to set the stage for an amazing album.
Here is the lyrics to the new single: “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall”
I SHUT THE WORLD OUTSIDE UNTIL THE LIGHTS COME ON
MAYBE THE STREETS ALIGHT, MAYBE THE TREES ARE GONE
I FEEL MY HEART START BEATING TO MY FAVOURITE SONGAND ALL THE KIDS THEY DANCE, ALL THE KIDS ALL NIGHT
UNTIL MONDAY MORNING FEELS ANOTHER LIFE
I TURN THE MUSIC UP
I’M ON A ROLL THIS TIME
AND HEAVEN IS IN SIGHTI TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
FROM UNDERNEATH THE RUBBLE SING A REBEL SONG
DON’T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER GENERATION DROP
I’D RATHER BE A COMMA THAN A FULL STOPMAYBE I’M IN THE BLACK, MAYBE I’M ON MY KNEES
MAYBE I’M IN THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO TRAPEZES
BUT MY HEART IS BEATING AND MY PULSES START
CATHEDRALS IN MY HEARTAND WE SAW OH THIS LIGHT I SWEAR YOU, EMERGE BLINKING INTO
TO TELL ME IT’S ALRIGHT
AS WE SOAR WALLS, EVERY SIREN IS A SYMPHONY
AND EVERY TEAR’S A WATERFALL
IS A WATERFALL
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH
IS A IS A WATERFALL
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OHSO YOU CAN HURT, HURT ME BAD
BUT STILL I’LL RAISE THE FLAGOH
IT WAS A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL
A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALLEVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALLEVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL
