You know what they say: A Coldplay by any other name would still sound as sweet. Coldplay’s new project is going under the name Los Unidades, a band that will likely only be around to support frontman Chris Martin’s undertaking of charity projects such as their brand new Global Citizen- EP 1.
Quickly following their first song released earlier this week (November 27), Los Unidades is back with a diverse group of features and three more tracks to complete a debut EP. “Rise Up,” “Timbuktu,” and “Voodoo” join the previously-shared “E-Lo” and enlist the help of David Guetta, Pharell, Nelson Mandela, and many more.
Tagging the charitable effort supporting international advocacy organization Global Citizen as “EP 1” seems to hint at a series of EPs from the British band’s new project. The upbeat, ultrapop, and feature-heavy release contains hints of music from cultures all around the world with various languages and styles weaved in.
Listen to the full EP below:
"Rise Up" (feat. Stargate and Nelson Mandela)
"E-Lo" (feat. Pharell Williams and Jozzy)
"Timbuktu" (feat. Cassper Nyovest, Stormyz, and Jess Kent)
