Coldplay Releases New Music Under Different Name

Fans quickly began to speculate that the whole thing was a rouse ahead of Coldplay dropping some new music given recent rumours that the band have been working on new material, plus the fact that they are most popular act on the Parlophone record label.

COLDPLAY gave themselves a shock makeover last night, by revealing they will perform under a new band name - Los Unidades.

Coldplay are apparently now called "Los Unidades".

Global Citizen EP 1 is out 11/30 on Parlophone/Atlantic. We will have to wait to find out if Chris Martin's vocals come through on the first Los Unidades. Internet sleuths at ColdplayXtra claim to have discovered further proof by tracking down the trademark for Los Unidades, which lists the founding members as Chris Martin, Jon Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion - aka Coldplay. The bottom of the poster includes some text - "Y02LPAC81ODL" - which is an anagram for "COLDPLAY2018". It sounds like a remix of a Coldplay track.

The torpedoing of Manafort's plea deal could expose him to a lengthier prison sentence and potentially more criminal charges. Following his conviction, President Trump praised his former campaign chairman for refusing to "break" under legal pressure.

The band teamed up with Pharrell Williams to release "E-Lo", which is taken off the Global Citizen EP.

If their E-Lo lyric video and its subject matter is anything to go by, then Los Unidades will only release music which promotes global unity and highlights socio-economic issues across the world. The EP also features Nelson Mandela, Stormzy, Wizkid, Danny Ocean, Tiwa Savage, Dave Guetta, Cassper Nyovest, Stargate, and Jess Kent.

The EP comes in conjunction with Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, which Martin and Holmes co-curated.

Coldplay says proceeds from the EP will support Global Citizen's campaigns and advocacy efforts to end extreme poverty, as well as its work in other areas like gender equality. "May it be the first of many", Coldplay manager Dave Holmes said.
