Kanye West Rocks Out With Coldplay For New Song
The two recorded the cut at London's Abbey Road Studios. 'Ye was on location recording the theme song to Mission Impossible 3 while Martin and his band, natives of London, were on hand to perform for Radio 2.
Word is the two critically-acclaimed artists set up a jam session after West went to watch the band's show. The pair produced a song that may end up on Ye's third album, Graduation.
"Kanye didn't mind being interrupted and after Coldplay's show, Chris joined him in the recording booth for a jamming session," an industry insider told Virgin's Newswire. "They did a track together which sounded amazing. Fingers crossed it will see the light of day."
West and Coldplay are both slated to perform at the Brit Awards at Earl's Court tonight.
This doesn't mark Kanye's first rock collaboration. The Chicagoan remixed Maroon 5's "This Love" back in 2004 and Adam Levine, the band's front man, appears on Late Registration's "Heard Em Say." West has also teamed up with John Mayer for Common's "Go" and "Bittersweet," a song set to appear on Graduation.
