After teasing the band's upcoming album Head Full of Dreams on Instagram, last week, Coldplay has released the full version to the track Hymn For The Weekend with none other than Queen Beyoncé's vocals on it.

The track premiered yesterday on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show followed by a short interview with the band's bassist Guy Berryman.

"It actually started off being quite a different vibe, this song," said Guy. "Chris was wanting to write a sort of party song. The words were 'Drinks on me, drinks on me'. And we said to him, 'You can't say that. You can't get away with that.'"

"Then the whole story of the song changed and then he asked Beyoncé to sing on it, and she very kindly said she would. And it was amazing. She came in. She did her thing. She's unbelievably professional. I think she was in and out five minutes. We're so blessed to have her sing on one of our songs," Guy added.
