New Coldplay album will feature duet with Rihanna

Coldplay and Rihanna working together

‘Coldplay’ front man Chris Martin recently gave an interview about their upcoming album ‘Mylo Xyloto’ and said that the album will be featuring a duet with Rihanna.

Chris talked about the first time he met up with Rihanna and how he had to muster up the courage to ask her to work on their album with them.  He said;

“The album is designed as a whole piece. It has boy and girl lead characters and top of our list for the girl part was Rihanna but it took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her. We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, ‘Do you think there’s any chance?’ I was very Hugh Grant- like and spluttering about it. She has such an amazing voice and it’s so different to mine. When the vocal happened I thought ‘Wow, you sound different’ but I think that’s also because she was singing a different song to what we are used to hearing from her and it is written by a bloke from Devon.”

The song that features Rihanna is called ‘Princess of China’ and you’ll be able to hear it when Coldplay’s album hits store shelves on October 24.
