Coldplay announces collaboration with Pharrell under a new name, Los Unidades

Coldplay announces collaboration with Pharrell under a new name, Los Unidades

Coldplay's record label, Parlophone, tweeted about a new artist signing with a blurred shadowy photo of four people that fans believe look eerily similar to Coldplay.

Los Unidades actually have three tracks to share via a new EP released by the Global Citizen charity.

Coldplay is expected to release new music today-but under a completely new band name.

As Pitchfork points out, Chris Martin and co. are due to headline the Mandela 100 Global Citizen festival in South Africa next month alongside Pharrell, Jay-Z, and Beyoncé. The bottom of the poster includes some text - "Y02LPAC81ODL" - which is an anagram for "COLDPLAY2018".

Adding fuel to the fire, Coldplay have liked the original tweet from Parlophone. And the fan site ColdplayXtra confirms that the four members of Coldplay hold the legal trademark on the name Los Unidades. It sounds like a remix of a Coldplay track.

"It was a real honour to help further the Global Citizen movement by putting together this release alongside Chris and Parlophone", explained Coldplay's manager Dave Holmes. We've ended up with so many incredible performers, and we're all extremely proud of the finished EP.

That may be Chris Martin singing on Coldplay's new song "E-Lo", featuring Pharrell Williams and the Memphis rapper Jozzy - but the band's name doesn't appear next to the track.

Proceeds of the EP will support Global Citizen's campaigns and advocacy efforts to end extreme poverty as well as its work in areas such as gender equality, education, water and sanitation.

Also on the horizon is the special Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 on December 2, which will honor Nelson Mandela and his legacy a century after he was born, featuring special guests including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Oprah and Ed Sheeran.
