Coldplay’s new five-track Kaleidoscope EP is out to download and stream worldwide today (the CD and vinyl versions of the EP will follow on August 4).
The EP was produced by the band’s long-term collaborators Rik Simpson and Daniel Green, together with Bill Rahko, and features a new live version of Coldplay’s hit single with The Chainsmokers, Something Just Like This, recorded in Tokyo in April. The full tracklisting is as follows:
The EP is the sister release to the band’s acclaimed A Head Full Of Dreams album, which is platinum in Australia and has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide since its December 2015 release. The four new songs were recorded in the band’s on-the-road studio during their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which reaches Paris this weekend for three sold out nights at the Stade de France.
The song A L I E N S was co-written by Brian Eno, and co-produced by Eno, Rik Simpson and Markus Dravs. All proceeds from A L I E N S will go to Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), an international NGO which rescues migrants and refugees in peril at sea in the Mediterranean. The band are patrons of the charity.
