I initially thought it was gonna be some fake recreation of an "unreleased" song but that sounds interesting.

Somebody lemme know if a better quality version of this becomes available. Not that YouTube quality will stop me from getting these unreleased songs. :D

This is also interesting, and probably totally unreleated but I remember an artist by the name of "The Racer" making a cover of Amazing Day and I think another AHFOD song some time back..... Just a similar song title and artist name lol. Prob just a coincidence
I remember this title!

Check out the 5 minute mark of this "Making of Ghost Stories" documentary video...

The song played in the background of their AHFOD Documentary

What’s a Cultural adviser anyway??
Cultural advisors work with individuals from different cultural heritages and identities and facilitate the coexistence of people in a culturally diverse community. (source)

Edit: The very first thought that occurred to me was 'Are the Coldplay working with this cultural advisor in order to avoid controversy such as cultural appropriation in future?".

Why do you think they need a Cultural Advisor for?? I think it’s for charity work or something.

My (conspiracy) theory: Paolo Petrocelli might have started working with the Coldplay due to the idea of Los Unidades.

Paolo Petrocelli seems to be an Italian cultural advisor. He does a lot of things in his life but maybe the key could be that he founded EMMA for Peace, an association for the promotion of 'musical diplomacy between Europe and Middle East', according to wikipedia.it

So an album for charity might be it? And I hope they bring out music under the name Coldplay, not los undidades (also, coldplaying sounds much better than los unidading hahaha)

That's possible.
In February 2017 there were rumors of Coldplay giving concerts in that area, and the band even visited Israel and Palestine, but did not play any concerts there. Perhaps they are now going to give a sort of peace concert there. In that case they would really need a 'cultural advisor'.
Or perhaps they are rehearsing some songs for the next Global Citizen festival.
It is more likely that their activities at the moment are charity related than related to a new album.

We'll have to keep in mind that it will be less glamorous than it seems [according to Stephen]....

@42Escapist wow, I didn't know that this was actually an unreleased track from GS! The production of the track posted in the YT video doesn't really sound much like GS either and they claimed it was a AHFOD era track, they must have been wrong. Guess the original song must have been made in GS, heck maybe even earlier! But this appears to definitely at least be a GS era song, with the sound only revealed to the public in the AHFOD documentary.

@M Marks The Spot, it's very possible that they might be looking to avoid issues such as that, lots of people were calling them out for appropriation in the HFTW video, which I think was stupid but anyway. I do think it's a necessary step for Coldplay however, seeing as they might be the most globally involved band ATM. Not a bad idea to have a cultural advisor on board! Not huge news music wise, but nonetheless it's always good to be keeping up with the Coldplay!
