If you’ve always dreamed of appearing on a Coldplay record, now’s your chance – the band have asked fans of the group to record themselves singing an extended note that will then be added to the track ‘One World’, which is expected to appear on the band’s forthcoming record, Moon Music.
This isn’t the first time that Coldplay have encouraged fans to get involved in their music. Back in 2014, the group abruptly took to the streets of Sydney (King Street, to be exact), to film a video for their song ‘A Sky Full Of Stars.’ That video, which is filled with fans of the band, was such a massive event that it temporarily shut down King Street – not an easy thing to do.

This new call to action was issued through the Coldplay website. “Hello everybody,” said the note, signed by band members Chris, Guy, Will and Jonny. “We hope you are all ok in these wild times. We have nearly finished Moon Music. If you’d like to be on it too, perhaps you could add your voice to a song called One World. (We would love that a lot.)”
The band continued, “All you have to do is record yourself singing ‘Ahhhhh’ for a few seconds at oneworld.coldplay.com. You can either copy the note on the site, or sing a G or C in any octave.”
Details of Moon Music are scant, but it’s expected to follow-up to Coldplay’s ninth album, Music of the Spheres, which came out in 2021. Chris Martin and co. will bring their Music of the Spheres world tour to Australia later this month for a couple of shows at Perth’s Optus Stadium. Both shows are sold out.
