Coldplay have announced that they will be performing their forthcoming album, Everyday Life, live in its entirety on the day of its release.

In a hilarious comedy skit uploaded to YouTube, the Alt-Rock band shared that they will be performing two live broadcasts on YouTube from the Arab country of Jordan, playing both halves of their upcoming double-album.

At a press conference attended by stuffed animals, masks, cardboard cutouts of celebrities and a handful of reporters all played by American musician Carrie Brownstein and comedian Fred Armisen, Coldplay is quizzed about topics ranging from new music to bass player, Guy Berryman's skincare routine.

"Our album, 'Everyday Life' is an attempt to convey the fact that there's a lot of shared experience, things that affect us all..." drummer Will Champian shared when asked about the title of the album.

In a recent interview with the BBC's "Radio 1" hosted by Annie Mac, frontman Chris Martin added that the new record feels like their "reaction to the perceived negativity that's everywhere. And there is a lot of trouble, but there's also so much positivity and so much great life happening here."

"Why still continue with Coldplay? Why do it?" asks Armisen in the skit, to which Martin replies with a refreshingly honest answer: "We're just trying to provide a service to the people that like our kind of music. We really love making music together and this is how we feel about things right now."

The performances will be broadcast live as YouTube Originals at 4 am GMT (Sunrise) and 2 pm GMT (Sunset) on November 22 and will be free to watch for all. YouTube Premium subscribers will also have access to exclusive bonus footage.
