English rockers Coldplay have released a new song written with ambient legend Brian Eno, with proceeds to support migrants who make the dangerous journey to Europe across the Mediterranean.
“Aliens,” released late Thursday alongside an animated video, is the latest single from Coldplay’s upcoming EP “Kaleidoscope.”
Coldplay said that proceeds from “Aliens” would support the Migrant Offshore Aid Station, a charity in Malta that sends search and rescue teams to save some among the thousands making the dangerous trek to Europe.
Ostensibly about extraterrestrials, the song alludes metaphorically to the migrant crisis with frontman Chris Martin singing, “Just an alien / We just want to get home again.”
