Obama sang on Coldplay’s new album



Coldplay the British rock band, which was formed in 1996, has got a latest fan and do you know who is that? It is not any other than the Barack Obama, President of the United States.

Currently, Barack Obama will be seeing while singing on Coldplay’s latest album A Head Full of Dreams which is the impending seventh studio album and will be released on 4 December 2015. The shift arrived in after the US head sang the band’s song ‘Amazing Grace’. It all happened at the funeral of a casualty of the Charleston shooting in June.


Chris Martin, the lead vocalist and the man who remains at the front, asked for to employ the footage for the reason that of its ‘historical significance’. “We have a tiny clip of the president singing Amazing Grace at that church,” Chris cited as stating.

He further revealed that they employed it “for the reason that of the historical importance of what he did and also that song being regarding ‘I’m lost but now I’m found’.

The reports revealed that the White House has approved and gave the authorization to the band to employ the clip as the President “clearly loves Coldplay”. It will provide an interval on the album.

The president of U.S, Barack Obama wouldn’t let only anybody characteristic his vocals on the record, particularly considering what a deeply emotional moment it was for him,” the sources from the band has told.

“But he evidently adores Coldplay and is contented to be a part of their music history. The band was clearly delighted,” the reports further stated.

The head of U.S, Obama prior in 2012, asserted that he would be a Coldplay fan, but the associates didn’t really trust him.

“I met Barack Obama in the summer and one thing he said to me was, ‘Oh I have your songs on my iPod,’ but I just thought, ‘Oh I bet he says that to every pop star he meets.’

“I can’t get my head across the idea that the President of the USA would have any of my songs on his playlist. It is only too weird,” stated the vocalist Chris.

Apart from Obama, Beyonce, Blue Ivy, Chris’ ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow and Annabelle Wallis have also participated in the album.
