Interesting facts and trivia about Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall. By Songfacts®.

Coldplay's first single from their fifth studio album was released digitally on June 3, 2011. The release date coincided with the day the band's summer festival run kicked off in Germany. "We're about to play a bunch of summer festivals so it's as good a time as any to put out a new song," said drummer Will Champion.

Coldplay performed the new single for the first time during its gig at the Rock Im Park festival in Nuremberg, Germany on June 3, 2011.

The song contains elements of "I Go To Rio" written by Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson in 1976. Originally recorded for Allen's fourth studio album, Taught By Experts, it was released as a single in Australia, spending five weeks at #1 there. In 1979 a cover by the pop rock band Pablo Cruise was a hit in the United States.
