New album 'A Head Full Of Dreams' will be released on December 4
Coldplay have revealed a new track titled ‘Everglow’ featuring Gwyneth Paltrow.
Frontman Chris Martin was a guest on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show tonight (November 26), where the track received its first play.
Despite famously “consciously uncoupling” from frontman Chris Martin over a year ago, actress Gwyneth Paltrow provided backing vocals for the track. She has also penned a line on Coldplay’s forthcoming album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.
In a recent interview with Q Magazine, Martin said, “She came up with the idea so I said, ‘Is there any chance you’d sing that line cos it’s your idea.’ Like any human, she was like, ‘I can’t do that! I’m not a professional!'”

As reported by Pitchfork, Chris Martin discussed ‘Everglow’ with Zane Lowe, explaining how he settled on the title and what the track meant.
“I was in the ocean one day with this surfer guy, who spoke just like you’d imagine a surfer guy to speak … 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.”
Coldplay’s forthcoming album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ will be released on December 4 via Parlophone/Atlantic.
The first track from the LP ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’ was recently unveiled.
Speaking about the new album previously to Zane Lowe, frontman Chris Martin hinted that the record could be the band’s last, saying: “It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something… I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”
