Coldplay have announced the release later today (December 2) of a new live EP titled ‘Infinity Station Sessions’.

It’s part of Apple Music’s ‘From Apple Music With Love’, an ongoing Christmas countdown series that features exclusive releases by acts. Artists including Elton John and Nile Rogers have so far contributed to date.

Coldplay shared the news on social media last night, writing “Tomorrow” and “Infinity Station Sessions EP” in a caption accompanying a short black-and-white clip of themselves performing ‘Coloratura’ from their new album ‘Music Of The Spheres’.

The EP will land today at 4pm GMT and is thought to contain live versions of tracks from ‘Music Of The Spheres’.

Rolling Stone UK had the world exclusive first verdict on the band’s ninth album, which writer Ella Kemp awarded with four stars and hailed as “spellbinding”.

“The orchestral odyssey ‘Coloratura’ might be the most dazzling thing Coldplay have ever done, a sprawling Pink Floyd-esque experiment which pays off infinitely. Yet this album’s pleasure is also in its simplicity: it’s the sound of a supremely confident band, so aware their music now matches the euphoria of, say, a stadium triumph that ‘Infinity Sign’ slyly reworks rudimentary football chant “Olé Olé Olé” into something quite beautiful. It shouldn’t work but it does: epitomising Coldplay’s breathless ascent ever higher. It’s just a thrill to be along for the ride.”

Meanwhile, last month the band donated a special signed seven-inch to Tiny Changes in memory of Scott Hutchison.

The Scottish mental health charity, founded in the wake of the Frightened Rabbit frontman’s death in 2018, auctioned the vinyl on eBay to raise funds.

A double A-side of ‘Champion of the World’ and ‘Cry Cry Cry’, the seven-inch is “a limited edition of one, released by Third Man Records, with hand-drawn artwork personally signed by the band,” according to the band in a statement.
