Coldplay recently performed a set of their songs in Maida Vale studios, and even slipped in a cover of the iconic Crystal Waters song ‘Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)’.

Right out from the release of their brand new album Everyday Life and a pair of release shows in Jordan, Coldplay recently stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Maida Vale studios in London for an exclusive performance accompanied with an elaborate orchestral section.

They performed a handful of tracks from their new album, including ‘Orphans’ and ‘Arabesque,’ as well as Viva La Vida’s ‘Lovers In Japan.’ The band also broke out a brand-new cover of Crystal Waters’ 1991 dance hit ‘Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless).’ Watch the video from the performance below.

Waters threw a little shade to Coldplay when she commented on this performance via her Instagram writing “Coldplay doing Gypsy Woman 😳. Hmmm, don’t know about this one 😕.”

She then changed the caption to read “Coldplay doing Gypsy Woman 😳. Hmmm what y’all think about this one?”

You know you’ve failed to cover a legend when the legend herself takes to social media to drag you through the dirt.

Here is the post made by Crystal Waters herself on Instagram.

In recent Coldplay news, the band have announced that they won’t be touring until they achieve environmental sustainability.  

“We’re taking time over the next year or two, to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial,” frontman Chris Martin told BBC. “Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that, environmentally. We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral.

“The hardest thing is the flying side of things. But, for example, our dream is to have a show with no single-use plastic, to have it largely solar-powered. We’ve done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it’s no so much taking as giving?”
