With the release of Coldplay’s new album A Head Full of Dreams around the corner, frontman Chris Martin went onto Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show to discuss the LP. While on the show, Chris spoke to Zane about the album’s title meaning title and its theme, but most importantly shared Coldplay’s latest single ‘Everglow‘. Here’s what he had to say about it.
“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.”
