Coldplay have unveiled a new stripped-back version of their new single 'Everglow' inspired by their impromptu performance of the track at Glastonbury Festival

Coldplay have reworked their new single 'Everglow'.

The British rockers have today (11.11.16) released the fifth song from their critically-acclaimed album 'A Head Full Of Dreams', with in a new style inspired by the band's performance of the track at the world famous Glastonbury Festival in June, where frontman Chris Martin had to deliver an impromptu version after a technical glitch.

The 'Up&Up' hitmakers fell in love with the new stripped-back edition and decided to make it available to buy.

The updated song also features an audio excerpt of Muhammad Ali speaking to a live studio audience in Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England, in 1977.

A video clip of the 39-year-old rocker recording the vocals has been uploaded to the group's Instagram page.

Coldplay previously released a special Surround Sound version of 'A Head Full of Dreams'.

The band - also comprised of drummer Will Champion, guitarist Jonny Buckland and bassist Guy Berryman - presented the record in 5.1 Surround Sound, which Coldplay's producer Rik Simpson says is the ultimate format in which to listen to the record.

Rik - who co-produced the album with Stargate - previously said: "The album was always conceived by the band as a dreamlike, kaleidoscopic sweep of music so it was fantastic to be able to take it to its furthest conclusion with a trip into a surround-sound dreamscape."

'Everglow' is out now.
