Selena Gomez is to sing in Coldplay’s Let Somebody Go, which is to feature in the band’s ninth album Music of Spheres that’s set to come out on the 15th of October. On October 4th Gomez took to twitter to announce that she and the English rock band have collaborated for their latest song.
A source said, “Chris has always been a huge fan of Selena and it’s a dream come true that she’s finally singing on a Coldplay record. They already have plans for a special live performance around the launch of the band’s album. She is massively popular with young people so the group hope that collaborations like this will help keep the next generation fans of the group.”
Gomez posted a visual to share the news with her followers, which featured a re-imagined, technicolor version of planet Earth rotating in space, surrounded by dozens of stars. The brief video also gave fans a sneak peek of the track, on which the “Lose You to Love Me” singer and Coldplay front-man Chris Martin sing, “When I called the mathematicians and I asked them to explain/ They said love is only equal to the pain” over a sweeping pop instrumental background.
According to Billboard reports, the news of the Gomez/Coldplay collaboration comes on the heels of “My Universe,” the band’s duet with K-pop superstars BTS and second single from Music of Spheres. “My Universe” — released on Sept. 24 via Parlophone and Atlantic Records — debuted at Nos. 38 and 42 on the Alternative Airplay and Rock & Alternative Airplay chart surveys dated Oct. 2 respectively. The debut marked the K-pop group’s first appearance on the rock and alternative charts.
The band also announced their week-long residence on The Late Late Show With James Corden from Oct. 18 to Oct. 21 in support of Music for Spheres, where they will debut “Let Somebody Go” with Gomez as well as a special performance of “Human Heart” with We Are KING and Jacob Collier.
