Los Unidades, the initially anonymous project later revealed to be Coldplay, have revealed more material which features on new charity EP ‘Global Citizen EP1’.
Chris Martin and co. feature on three of its four tracks. ‘E-Lo’, the band’s debut single that dropped earlier this week and features Pharell Williams and Jozzy.

The release is headed by Global Citizen, an international advocacy organisation that aims to “end extreme poverty by 2030”.
The brand new tracks featuring Los Unidades include ‘Timbuktu’, which also features South African star Cassper Nyovest, as well as grime megastar Stormzy and Australian musician Jess Kent.
The Colplday side-project also feature on ‘Voodoo’, a track that sees acclaimed production duo Stargate team up with David Guetta, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Danny Ocean in addition to Los Unidades.
Stargate, aka Norwegian producers Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, are known for producing huge records by the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Michael Jackson and Katy Perry. They also took the reins on Coldplay’s last album, ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.
Stargate also contribute ‘Rise Up’ which samples the voice of former South African president and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela.
A Global Citizen music festival is to take place in Johannesburg, South Africa. Titled ‘Mandela 100’ and organised in part by Martin, the Coldplay singer is among a raft of artists set to appear.
Los Unidades were first announced as a mysterious “new signing” to Parlophone records, with fans’ speculation that the group was a pseudonym for Coldplay later proved to be correct.
