Coldplay have announced they are to release a brand new single ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ this Saturday (June 4).
The band revealed the news on their official website Coldplay.com this morning (May 31) and have said they will be streaming the new track from Friday (June 3). They have also put up the single’s lyrics and artwork.
The announcement ends a week in which the band have posted two cryptic updates, which are now revealed to have been lyrics from the new single.
Drummer Will Campion has also posted a message, which reads: “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. ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ will be available digitally on Friday 3rd June at 12pm (BST), except in the UK where it’ll come out on the stroke of midnight between Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June. We’ll also stream it here on Friday and give it a run out at Rock Im Park.”
The Rock Im Park festival takes place this weekend in Nuremberg, Germany, with Coldplay headlining the Saturday night (June 4).
The band have not said whether ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ will feature on their forthcoming fifth studio album.
