Proceeds from Coldplay’s new song A L I E N S will all be donated to the Migrant Offshore Aid Station – the Malta-based registered charity dedicated to preventing loss of lives at sea.

A L I E N S, from their forthcoming Kaleidoscope EP, was co-written by Brian Eno, and co-produced by Eno and Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, Kings Of Leon).

All proceeds from the song will be donated MOAS, in efforts to help the charity rescue more migrants and refugees in peril at sea in the Mediterranean.

Coldplay are patrons of the charity and have been supporting MOAS’ search-and-rescue efforts, as well as their campaign for the creation of safe and legal routes for migrants and refugees to Europe.

Regina Catrambone, co-founder and Director of MOAS said: “We are grateful for Coldplay’s continuous support for MOAS’ cause and mission. Since 2014, we have rescued over 39,000 lives, but it is now more than ever before that we need help and solidarity. While we continue to be present at sea, we are also working to implement safe and legal routes in order to give some hope to those held hostage in detention centres”.

“Coldplay’s music is a wakeup call to the world, bringing awareness to the plight of migrants and refugees. We need new and creative ways to educate people of the realities and pain that they have been through.

“Without empathy, we are lost”, added co-founder Christopher Catrambone.  

Prior to the release of A L I E N S, Coldplay and MOAS also collaborated on the creation of the ‘I AM YOU’ t-shirt, which is available for purchase from Coldplay’s online store.

The song’s animated lyric video, directed by Diane Martel and Ben Jones, is available now at https://youtu.be/we-LaiQNY5s. 

A L I E N S is taken from the Kaleidoscope EP, which will be available to download and stream on July 14, and released on CD and vinyl on August 4.

The full track listing is as follows: All I Can Think About Is You; Miracles (Someone Special) - Coldplay & Big Sean; A L I E N S; Something Just Like This (Tokyo Remix) - Coldplay & The Chainsmokers; and Hypnotised.

The Kaleidoscope EP is available to pre-order now via Coldplay.com and download stores (with anyone pre-ordering digitally receiving All I Can Think About Is You and A L I E N S now).

The EP is the sister release to the band’s acclaimed A Head Full Of Dreams album, which has sold more than five million copies around the world since its December 2015 release.
