With their eighth studio album just days away, Coldplay are introducing two more new songs off Everyday Life. First up “Champion of the World,” which features additional contributions from Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison and a co-writing credit for the songwriters behind Owl John’s “Los Angeles Be Kind.” The other half of today’s releases is “Daddy,” and that effort comes to us alongside its accompanying visual — an animated piece put together by Asa Lucander and Aardman Animations.

“I knew when I had the opportunity to pitch on this project that is was going to be a very special one,” “Daddy” director Asa Lucander shares via an official statement. “A few minutes into listening to the track ‘Daddy’ – It spoke to me in a way that stories and visual images began to dance in front of me. And when this happens you know that you are on to something very special indeed. I tend to get drawn to emotional stories and this was certainly one I wanted to tell.”

“Scott had a song called ‘Los Angeles Be Kind,’ which I love,” Coldplay’s Chris Martin explains in an additional set of remarks. “When I first heard it, I thought it was going to go one way; but it went another. Anyway ‘Champion Of The World’ is the song that came from following the other path, and that’s why Scott is a co-writer on this song. Today is also his birthday. So happy birthday Scott and thank you for your beautiful music, wherever you are.”

You can check out Coldplay’s latest pair of singles, “Daddy” and “Champion of the World,” below. Coldplay’s new studio album Everyday Life will hit streaming services this Friday, November 22.
