Coldplay took the stage at Los Angeles’ Belasco Theater Saturday night as part of a Tidal live-stream where the band debuted cuts off their upcoming LP A Head Full of Dreams. Over the course of the performance, Chris Martin and company showcased four tracks from their new album: “A Head Full of Dreams,” “Amazing Day,” “Adventure of a Lifetime,” and, for the first time, “Up&Up.”
“This is the song we’ve been waiting for write for 15 years,” Martin said of the expansive, eight-minute “Up&Up,” the evening’s final song and A Head Full of Dreams‘s closing track. As Martin told Rolling Stone, the studio version of “Up&Up” will feature guest guitarist Noel Gallagher.
“We wanted to marry all the music that we love, from Drake to Oasis,” Martin said of the new Coldplay album, due out December 4th. “There was a feeling that we don’t have anything to lose. We’re very comfortable now with the fact that we’re not for everybody.”
While Martin previously hinted that this could be the “final” Coldplay album, he’s since backtracked on those comments. “I have no idea what’s going to happen. If one day we make another record, then that’s wonderful,” Martin said before assuring fans, “We’re definitely not splitting up.”
