Coldplay have revealed the tracks of their latest album in the classified adverts of their local newspaper.

The list of songs appears above an advert for a car boot sale and next to an appeal to find a tenant for an apartment in the classified section of today’s Express and Echo in Devon.

The world-famous band have been drip-feeding details of ‘Everyday Life’ – which is divided into ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’ – with a series of hints all week. 

Coldplay has strong links to Devon with frontman Chris Martin hailing from Exeter.

He was educated at Hylton School and Exeter Cathedral School, which is where he found his passion for music, and keeps close ties to the area.

Hints about Colplay’s new album started with a series of posters appearing in worldwide cities.

It sent people into raptures last week, before a letter was sent to fans around the globe confirming more details.

The letter, which was shared by Coldplay on social media, revealed that they had been ‘working on a thing called Everyday Life’.

They added: ‘In the classifieds you might write ”double album for sale, one very careful owner”.

‘One half is called ”sunrise”, the other half is called ”sunset”. It comes out 22 November.

‘It is sort of how we feel about things. We send much love to you from hibernation.’

The ad, which appears on page 50 of Thursday’s paper, shows a list of tracks underneath the two sections of the new album.

The tracks in the ‘Sunrise’ section include: Sunrise, Church, Trouble in Town, BrokEn, Daddy, WOTW/POTP, Arabesque and When I Need A Friend.

In the ‘Sunset’ section, tracks include: Guns, Orphans, Èkó, Cry Cry Cry, Old Friends, Champion of the World and Everyday Life.

It also includes a track which is not written in the Latin alphabet.

Alex Richards, deputy head of content at the newspaper, said: ‘It’s a lovely surprise for fans and even more so for those that work at the Express & Echo and its website Devon Live.

‘Front man Chris Martin was born in Exeter so it’s brilliant to see him returning to his roots and, in doing so, supporting local newspapers.

‘Our offices are just a minute away from Exeter Cavern – a music venue where the band played some of their earliest gigs and, no doubt, holds cherished memories.’

The same advert appeared in the North Wales Daily Post on Wednesday.

Lead guitarist Jonny Buckland later tweeted that he once had a holiday job at the Daily Post, placing photos of houses for sale.
