Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow might have had a ‘conscious uncoupling’ but that hasn’t stopped them from working together on Coldplay’s new track ‘Everglow.’

Martin revealed, during an interview Q Magazine, that Paltrow would feature on the track as she wrote some of its lyrics.

“She came up with the idea so I said, ‘Is there any chance you’d sing that line cos it’s your idea?’ Like any human, she was like, ‘I can’t do that! I’m not a professional!'” Martin told Q Magazine.

The song will feature in Coldplay’s new album A Head Full Of Dreams. Martin also explained that the song, quite poignantly, was a reflection on the end of relationships.

“It’s a loved one or a situation or a friend or a relationship that’s finished, or someone’s passed away — I was thinking about, after you’ve been through the sadness of something, you also get this everglow. That’s what it’s about” he said.
