Coldplay met up with James Corden the day before on The Late Late Show where they discussed how they ended up working with Beyonce on their new album, A Head Full Of Dreams.
“You get summoned to their castle, then you wait for about a week in a small room, where you’re just fed very minimally…They check me for lice and bugs and if you’re deemed clean enough, you get to meet Beyonce behind a screen,” he said jokingly.

Chris Martin is all smiles while making his way out of the BBC Radio 2 Studios after appearing on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Friday (December 4) in London, England.
The 38-year-old singer made sure to sign autographs for his fans outside the studios after promoting his band Coldplay‘s new album A Head Full Of Dreams, which is available on iTunes and in stores everywhere today!
“The idea that you can go through something and, with the right guidance, you can emerge into this more colourful place — that’s where this album came from,” Chris told The Sun. “It has been difficult. I reached a real low point through the nature of what was going on in my personal life, so Ghost Stories was quiet, intimate and silver and blue in colour. It felt right not to do a huge tour after it.”
“A Head Full Of Dreams is the blossoming,” Chris added. “At the end of Ghost Stories there is a song called ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ which is the gateway into A Head Full Of Dreams.”

The new song will be featured on the band’s upcoming album A Head Full of Dreams, which is set to be released on December 4.
“I thought I’d like to have a song called ‘Drinks on Me’ where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so f—ing cool,” Chrissaid about the origin of the song. “I was chuckling about that, when this melody came — ‘drinks on me, drinks on me’ — then the rest of the song came out. I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, ‘We love this song, but there’s no way you can sing “drinks on me.”‘ So that changed into ‘drink from me’ and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyonce to sing on it.”

“I was in the ocean one day with this surfer guy,” Chris said of the song’s inspiration. “He was like, ‘Yo dude, I was doing this thing the other day, man. It gave me this total everglow!’ I was like, ‘What an amazing word!’ Then the song came completely out. To me, it’s about — whether it’s a loved one or a situation or a friend or a relationship that’s finished, or someone’s passed away — I was thinking about, after you’ve been through the sadness of something, you also get this everglow. That’s what it’s about.”
