Coldplay released the first single from their forthcoming not-yet-titled album Friday, marking the first new song from the band since 2008’s Viva La Vida.

The melodic and uplifting song follows the band’s traditional musical themes marked by rhythmic guitar and a pulsing beat. “Teardrop” fulfills lead singer Chris Martin‘s description of the upcoming album as songs “about life, the good stuff, the bad stuff, everything.” The track samples the 1976 infectious dance hit “I Go To Rio” by Peter Allen.

Listen to the song below and let us know what you think in the comments!

COLDPLAY – “EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL“ – LYRICS

I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
I SHUT THE WORLD OUTSIDE UNTIL THE LIGHTS COME ON
MAYBE THE STREETS ALIGHT, MAYBE THE TREES ARE GONE
I FEEL MY HEART START BEATING TO MY FAVOURITE SONG
AND ALL THE KIDS THEY DANCE, ALL THE KIDS ALL NIGHT
UNTIL MONDAY MORNING FEELS ANOTHER LIFE
I TURN THE MUSIC UP
I’M ON A ROLL THIS TIME
AND HEAVEN IS IN SIGHT
I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
FROM UNDERNEATH THE RUBBLE SING A REBEL SONG
DON’T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER GENERATION DROP
I’D RATHER BE A COMMA THAN A FULL STOP
MAYBE I’M IN THE BLACK, MAYBE I’M ON MY KNEES
MAYBE I’M IN THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO TRAPEZES
BUT MY HEART IS BEATING AND MY PULSES START
CATHEDRALS IN MY HEART
AND WE SAW OH THIS LIGHT I SWEAR YOU, EMERGE BLINKING INTO
TO TELL ME IT’S ALRIGHT
AS WE SOAR WALLS, EVERY SIREN IS A SYMPHONY
AND EVERY TEAR’S A WATERFALL
IS A WATERFALL
OH
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH
IS A IS A WATERFALL
EVERY TEAR
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH
SO YOU CAN HURT, HURT ME BAD
BUT STILL I’LL RAISE THE FLAG
OH
IT WAS A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL
A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL
