Coldplay and Apple Music have announced the release of a brand new EP and companion short film titled Coldplay: Reimagined, featuring stripped-back performances of “Cry Cry Cry,” “BrokEn” and “Champion of the World” from their latest album, Everyday Life.
Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland enlist long-term collaborators Rik Simpson, Dan Green, and Bill Rahko (The Dream Team) to produce the exclusive EP. Whether it’s adding a powerful choir to the doo-wop of “Cry Cry Cry” and the gospel of “BrokEn,” or the string-abetted catharsis of “Champion of the World,” every twist offers a new perspective on the reimagined songs.
As a companion to the EP, Apple Music has released an exclusive short that takes fans inside the studio with Martin and Buckland for a close and unvarnished look. “Today we tried to strip back some of these songs which were already quite stripped back,” Chris Martin says with a smile in the opening moments of the Apple Music film. “We did that by removing two band members.”
The Coldplay: Reimagined EP and the companion short film is available worldwide exclusively on Apple Music.
