Videos for Everglow by Coldplay
Information about the piece
The song Everglow is a sublime piece by the British rock band, Coldplay. This ballad has its roots in the band's seventh studio album, A Head Full of Dreams (2015). It was released as a single on December 11, 2015, gaining noteworthy acclamation for its poignant lyrics and heart-stirring melody.
Everglow is the product of a collaboration between Coldplay and Norwegian pop producers Stargate. Chris Martin, lead vocalist of Coldplay, has shared that the song was inspired by the concept of enduring love and affection that remains even after parting ways with a loved one. This was deeply personal to Martin, reflecting his own experience with 'conscious uncoupling' from his then-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow herself provides backing vocals to this song.
Musically, Everglow is a blend of Coldplay's signature atmospheric rock and piano balladry. It adheres to a traditional verse-chorus structure. Stylistically, the song begins with a soft piano introduction that gradually builds in intensity, becoming punctuated by powerful strings and percussion as it reaches the chorus.
Here are several key features of Everglow:
- Time Signature: 4/4
