Coldplay have announced today they will release a new single this weekend (Sat 4 June). The single, called ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’, will be streamed on their website on Friday 3 June before being released digitally the following day.
In a post on their site this morning, drummer Will Campion wrote:
“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… We’ll also stream it here on Friday and give it a run out at Rock Im Park.”
The post also includes the lyrics to ‘Every Tear Is A Waterfall’, which confirms fans suspicions that two cryptic clues posted by the band over the past week or so were indeed lyrics to the new single.
It is not yet known whether this new song will be part of the bands forthcoming album fifth album, or is just a taster of the album sessions. We’ll probably get more clues about the new album when Coldplay headline the Rock Im Park festival in Germany this weekend.
