Beyoncé collaborates with Coldplay

Published 06/11/2015


Coldplay has announced a new album, featuring a collaboration with Beyoncé Knowles.

Pop superstar Beyoncé has recorded a collaboration with British rockers Coldplay.

The Irresistible singer headed to the studio with Chris Martin's band to record a track for their new album A Head Full of Dreams, which is due for release in December (15).

The duet follows the band's previous collaboration with Rihanna, Princess of China, which featured on Coldplay's 2011 record Mylo Xyloto.

British rocker Noel Gallagher, Swedish singer Tove Lo, and gospel star Merry Clayton also feature in tracks on A Head Full of Dreams.

"Coldplay has never enjoyed making a record more than this one. Nor have they been happier with the results," a statement from the band's Parlophone record label reads.

They premiered the album's first single, Adventure Of A Lifetime, on Friday (06Nov15), and the rockers made an appearance on British radio station BBC Radio 1, revealing they came close to missing their deadline for the record, which they completed three weeks ago.

"It (the deadline) gradually moved later and later - but we came in relatively on time," explains Chris. He also reveals the record is much more cheerful than their last offering, 2014's Ghost Stories, saying, "(It is) a more colourful, more joyful sort of thing... It's the sound of us being free and happy and very grateful to be in our group."

The frontman also revealed he is hoping the new album will be a success and land them their first ever headline appearance at Britain's Glastonbury festival next year (16)."We'd love to do it. That's our spiritual home, as a band," he adds. "Maybe we should have called ahead and asked them."
