Coldplay are no more…well, for the time being, as Los Unidades takes centre stage with the four members and a new banger.
The fresh group today announced its new song E-Lo, which will form part of a four-track Global Citizen EP alongside Pharrell.
Stormzy, Cassper Nyovest, Stargate, Jozzy, Jess Kent, Danny Ocean, Tiwa Savage, David Guetta and Wizkid will also feature alongside this funky new Los Unidades, in a pretty swanky roll call of musical names.
And because a new song isnt just all theyre playing at, it was announced there will also be a Global Citizen festival: Mandela 100 to take place in Johannesburg on 2 December.
So we take it this is where Los Unidades will perform together for the first time…
This afternoon a lyric video was announced, after cryptic messages teased a 5pm release, with Chris Martins vocals taking prominence.
Now we can all breathe a sigh of relief after we were all buying into the hype after some fiendish clues were dropped on us earlier today.
Fans had been speculating all day as to whether Coldplay were the lads behind this mystical Los Unidades, which led them to dig up some clues which might have revealed all.
It all started when earlier today Coldplays record label, Parlophone, tweeted: Parlophone Records are delighted to present new signing #LosUnidades.
Sure you might think its a funky new signing, however they also shared the images of a shadowy four-piece that looked mighty similar to Chris Martin, Jon Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.
AKA Coldplay. (Albeit a little blurry…)
The band then liked the tweet, only sending fans into more of a headspin as they hastily tried to join the dots.
Text at the bottom of a funky new poster also tweeted out also read: Y02LPAC81ODL – which, if you jumbled up the letters, also spells COLDPLAY2018.
Because that wasnt enough, a fan account called ColplayXtra then put on their detective hat and discovered, apparently, a legal trademark agreement which lists the owners of Los Unidades as, oh, you guessed it: Chris Martin, Jon Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.
Fans are understandably going wild over the hints as they took to social media to try and make sense of it all.
You could say they have a headful of hints…maybe?
Turns out those internet detectives can give themselves a pat on the back – they unlocked the code.
Now give us this tune.
Oh, they have.
E-Lo is out now.
