There is no doubt that Blue Ivy Carter lives a charmed life. The progeny of Jay Z and Beyonce will be heard singing on Coldplay’s new album.
Chris Martin recently spoke about the features on the new project, A Head Full Of Dreams.
Reports the Wall Street Journal:
You’ve given people a lot to gossip about in the liner notes to the album, which lists all the nonband members on the album.
You mean children and ex-wives…
…and someone you’ve been linked to romantically.
Everyone who got asked to sing on our album has an important part in our lives. This is The Wall Street Journal, so I don’t want to get too hippie, but what I’m trying to learn in my life is the value of every human. Inclusiveness is the key thing, and it all comes from that “Guest House” poem. The “choir” started with my two kids coming in after school and recording. We recorded Blue Ivy Carter in New York when her mom Beyoncé was in the studio. It comes from learning about Greek tragedy, where the chorus chimes in at times. To me, when we use that sound, it’s to affirm what I’m saying. “We agree with you, Chris. Keep singing.”
A Head Full Of Dreams is out Dec. 4. Coincidentally, that’s Jay Z’s birthday.
