Coldplay partner with YouTube Originals for live stream

Coldplay are to partner with YouTube Originals for the launch of the band’s eighth album, Everyday Life.

Two exclusive performances will be livestreamed from their gig in Jordan on November 22, the day of the album’s release.

The band’s single Orphans has topped the UK airplay chart.

Coldplay: Everyday Life - Live in Jordan will take place in Amman, Jordan and mirror the two halves of the 52-minute 'Everyday Life' double album: Sunrise and Sunset. The Sunrise concert will begin at 4am GMT, with the Sunset concert following at 2pm GMT.

These will mark the band’s first ever performances in Jordan. 

Coldplay said: “These two broadcasts have been our dream since we first started work on this album. It’s a bit impossible and a bit scary, like all the best dreams. YouTube is the perfect home for it.”  

The band announced the concerts with an unusual online press conference.
