If you can't afford a ticket to Jordan there's still a way to be part of Coldplay's upcoming shows in Amman later this month. "If any of you would like to film yourself singing the song 'Orphans' by the band Coldplay, we would love you to send us that, so we could include it in the broadcast," singer Chris Martin explains in a request for fan videos posted on Wednesday morning (Nov. 6).

Coldplay is partnering with YouTube Originals to live-stream two exclusive performances from Amman, Jordan, on Nov. 22, the day the band will release their Everyday Life double-album. For their first-ever performance in Jordan, the group will mirror their upcoming double album with a Sunrise concert beginning at 4 a.m. GMT and Sunset concert following at 2 p.m. GMT. Both shows will be available to watch on YouTube.  

The instructions for uploading your video are in the solicitation and Martin promises, "we will harness your gorgeousness and make something bigger than the sum of its parts." The video then cuts to a bit where fans can film themselves singing the joyous single's chorus and a link to submit the clips.

“These two broadcasts have been our dream since we first started work on this album," the band said in a press release about their Jordanian adventure. "It’s a bit impossible and a bit scary, like all the best dreams. YouTube is the perfect home for it.”  Everyday Life is Coldplay's eighth album. They released "Orphans" and "Arabesque" on Oct. 24 and the album's title track following their performance on Saturday Night Live last weekend.
