Coldplay have recorded a new track with Little Simz. The chart-topping British band and the 30-year-old rap star have joined forces to record the new song, which has been given a working title of ‘Supernova’.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “Both artists were excited to make a collaboration work.”

Coldplay and Little Simz – who has also starred in the Netflix revival drama Top Boy – recently filmed a music video for the new song in east London.

Coldplay have worked with some of the best-known artists in the world over the years, including the likes of BTS, Rihanna and Selena Gomez.

And Chris Martin – the band’s frontman – previously claimed that their BTS collaboration felt very “natural” and “organic”.

Speaking about My Universe – their 2021 track – Chris told BBC Radio 2: “I went to Korea to record with them and it went from being this completely ridiculous, impossible idea to feeling so natural and so organic, that it makes me giggle because now I just feel like, ‘Yeah, (it’s) our song with BTS and they’re like our little brothers and it’s completely cool’. But I see that on paper it still looks funny.”

Meanwhile, Coldplay will tonight perform as the headline act at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

Chris Martin and company top the bill at the radio station’s three-day festival, which takes place at Stockwood Park in Luton, Bedfordshire this year.

Coldplay said: “We wouldn’t be anywhere without Radio 1 and we’re super excited to come to Luton this year and play Big Weekend.”

Declan McKenna, Olly Alexander, Sabrina Carpenter, Vampire Weekend will also play the main stage. Also lined up for the event are beabadoobee, CMAT, Everything Everything, and Teddy Swims, who will perform on the New Music Stage.
