President Obama, Blue Ivy, and Beyoncé are among the featured guests on Coldplay’s new album A Head Full of Dreams. Queen Bey appears on a track called “Hymn for the Weekend,” a song that was inspired by the club.
“The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like ‘Turn Down for What.’ What would we call it if we had one?” Chris Martin told The Wall Street Journal.
Blue Ivy also lends her vocals as part of a choir consisting of family and friends, and Barack Obama’s rendition of “Amazing Grace” is sampled on “Kaleidoscope.”
Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams is due Dec. 4.
