^ You're right in that she probably won't have a very prominent part, but I have sort of a Pavlov's dog response to collaborations--even minor ones. I don't like Lost+, PoC, or ASFoS. It seems like collaborations always entail a very pop-y, Top-40-sounding track.

What's interesting is that all the non-album collaborations that Coldplay have done (Wish I Was Here with Cat Power, Lhuna with Kylie Minogue, Chris's collabs with Faultline, etc.) I really like. To me, that strengthens my belief that on-album collabs are done purely for financial gain. Songs that otherwise wouldn't have made their respective albums are included anyway because they would pair well with a certain artist and therefor draw in a wider fanbase.

. . . I can rant all day about the poor decision-making involved in including PoC and ASFoS on their albums :awesome:

If they had anybody on this song, it should have been Birdy. She has an amazing voice and is perfect for piano ballads!

it says album version of everglow from the show today! so does that mean there will be a radio edit down the line? looks like we'll be getting this as a single.

If Birdy was to be on this album at all, it should have been on Birds.

I heard it last night. Piano ballad. I loved it, it was beautiful. And that's all I'm going to say...

^ :surprised:

Can you at least tell us if we know any of the lyrics for it yet? Like, from Chris's "falling snow" shirt or the snippet that got played during UAtW last weekend? :awesome:

^ Or anything from the iHeart festival pants like how we knew "a dream that died by light of day" before AOAL came out?

Hahaha! Thanks Dianne! I guess the "that's all I'm going to say" probably refers to GP's backing vocals?

Tell us a bit more!!!

All I heard was Chris on piano and his vocals, Jonny on guitar, Will on drums with his vocals, and Guy on bass. I am horrible at remembering lyrics, so I can't help any of you there. I was just standing there thinking that I loved it, and Chris's vocals were spot on. He said the title before he played it, but I couldn't hear him, and then when he played, I heard the "Everglow" and that's when I figured it out. Sorry! You'll have to wait until the Tidal show tomorrow and hope they play it!

Cool, thanks for the info!

Since "everglow" actually appears in the lyrics, I wonder if those "falling snow" lyrics on Chris's shirt will actually make an appearance. They seem to fit the tone of a ballad, and they rhyme :D

Gwyneth Paltrow actually sings two lines of one verse:

How come things move on/How come cars don't slow
