Coldplay‘s new album A Head Full of Dreams will arrive on December 4 and in preparation of that, frontman Chris Martin stopped by Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 Radio show to discuss the LP. During his time there, he also shared another track off the album titled “Everglow.” Read below to learn about the conception of the song’s title and theme.
“I was in the ocean one day with this surfer guy, who spoke just like you’d imagine a surfer guy to speak … He was like, ‘Yo dude, I was doing this thing the other day man, it gave me this total everglow!’ I was like, ‘What an amazing word!’ Then the song came completely out. To me, it’s about – whether it’s a loved one or a situation or a friend or a relationship that’s finished, or someone’s passed away – I was thinking about, after you’ve been through the sadness of something, you also get this everglow. That’s what it’s about.”
