Coldplay fans went quite ballistic and crazy when Coldplay’s front man Chris Martin showed up in Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show to reveal a very early Christmas gift – and valentines, and every other occasion for the rest of the year!
The iconic band released a new single for their upcoming album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ and it’s probably the craziest and most emotional song in the album.
The song is entitled ‘Everglow’ and believe it or not, Chris decided to feature his ex wife and actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the song!
The 38-year-old ‘Sky Full Of Stars’ singer then went in to explain the origins of the song and it’s actually quite amazing how the song came about.
“I was in the ocean one day with this surfer guy,” he shared.
“He was like, ‘Yo dude, I was doing this thing the other day, man. It gave me this total everglow!’”
“I was like, ‘What an amazing word!’ then the song came completely out.”
“to me, it’s about – whether it’s a loved one or a situation or a friend or a relationship that’s finished, or someone’s passed away – I was thinking about after you’ve been through the sadness of something, you also get this everglow. That’s what it’s about.”
It’s crazy how a simple random word from a stranger can result to a possible new hit song.
Chris also revealed that Gywneth isn’t the only person who was featured in the album that has a personal and intimate connection to him. Beyonce’s little one Blue Ivy Carter, Chris’ children Apple and Moses and Chris’ current girlfriend Annabelle Wallis will all feature in the band’s album as well.
“The colors we’re missing within the band we tried to bring in with guests and other producers.” Chris explained.
Coldplay’s album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ is set to hit stores December 4.
