Coldplay perform sunrise and sunset live sets in Amman, Jordan: Watch

As a live debut of their newly released double LP Everyday Life, Coldplay have shared two performances from Amman, Jordan– one taking place at sunrise, and another at sunset. Staged atop the capital’s aged citadel, the sets reflected the two-halves of the new record. The first sunrise performance kicked off at 4am GMT, with the city cloaked in grey clouds as the band whisked through each new track. For their performance of “Arabesque”, they were joined by Stromae, Femi Kuti, and a pack of sparkling horns. The following sunset performance opened with “Guns”, then moved into the single “Orphans” accompanied by a jumping choir. The set wrapped with the album’s title track, sizzling out against a brightly glowing horizon. The two performances serve as one of the few chances to see these songs in live form. You won’t catch the guys touring anytime soon as they’ve sworn it off until they find a more environmentally friendly approach. However, fans in London can catch their upcoming one-off show on November 25th at London’s Natural History Museum. All proceeds will go to the environmental law charity ClientEarth. Watch both full performances below. [embedded content] [embedded content] Sunrise Setlist:SunriseChurchTrouble in TownBrokEnDaddyWOTW/POTPArabesqueWhen I Need a Friend […]

Sherly Crow duest with Johnny Cash on new version of “Redemption Day”: Stream

Sheryl Crow plans to release what she’s previously called her “final album” later this summer. Though no firm details have been revealed, the record is said to feature a number of collaborations with the likes of Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, and St. Vincent. Johnny Cash also appears from beyond the grave, dueting on a reworking of Crow’s 1996 track “Redemption Day”. Cash actually first encountered the song in 2003 after being introduced to it by his son-in-law. The Man in Black approached Crow about covering “Redemption Day”, but first drilled her about the depth of meaning. “He asked a lot of questions about different lines and what I meant,” Crow recalled in a press release. “He didn’t want to put his voice to the song without being able to believe it heart and soul.” He ended up recording his own take on the anti-war track, though it wasn’t released until after his death, appearing on 2010’s posthumous American VI: Ain’t No Grave. After playing alongside Cash’s rendition during her 2014 tour, Crow decided to take “Redemption Day” back into the studio to record a new duet version. The update comes to us via a music video directed by Shaun Silva […]
