Coldplay’s Upcoming Album Will Feature President Obama Singing Too — Get The Deets!

Well, this is inneresting!

We already knew Coldplay‘s new album would feature guest vocals by Beyonc├â┬⌐, Blue Ivy Carter, and even Chris Martin‘s ex Gwyneth Paltrow.

But the President of the United States?? Now that’s impressive!

Chris revealed that he will be using a snippet of President Barack Obama singing Amazing Grace as an interlude on A Head Full of Dreams!

The 38-year-old told The Sun that:

“We have a tiny clip of the President singing Amazing Grace at that church. Because of the historical significance of what he did and also that that song being about, ├óΓé¼╦£I’m lost but now I’m found’.”

This clip of the POTUS singing comes from the funeral of Charleston shooting victim Clementa C. Pinckney that happened earlier this year.

Having Obama’s voice on the album wasn’t easy to accomplish either; the White House, Barack, and even the Charleston Church had to grant special permission for his voice to be used.

A source close to the band said:

“Barack Obama wouldn’t let just anyone feature his vocals on the record, especially considering what a deeply emotional moment it was for him. But he clearly loves Coldplay and is happy to be a part of their music history. The band were obviously thrilled. They needed to get permission from Obama himself and the Charleston church it was recorded in.”

We guess this will prove to Martin that the President REALLY is a Coldplay fan — Chris said in 2012 that he didn’t believe the politician when he said he liked their music.

If you’re a fan like POTUS, you can pick up the British band’s seventh studio album when it drops December 4!
