The first track to be revealed is "E-Lo", a collaboration with Pharrell Williams, Los Unidades and Jozzy.
Los Unidades is a pseudonym for Coldplay. Chris Martin is working under a new name while making music for the charity. Martin has been an ambassador since 2015, and signed up to curate the charity's festivals for the next 15 years.
Chris Martin has been a curator of Global Citizen's live festivals, including their forthcoming Nelson Mandela concert in South Africa next week.
Speaking about the project, Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans says, "For hundreds of years, we have witnessed the power of music in bringing people together to drive activism and demand change. We are thrilled to release Global Citizen EP 1 with new songs from these incredible artists who stand with us in the fight to defeat extreme poverty, and we are extremely grateful to Dave Holmes, Parlophone Records and Atlantic Records for their dedicated partnership and support as we demand to see an end to extreme poverty by 2030.”
The Global Citizen EP 1 features other contributions from Stormzy, Wizkid, Danny Ocean, David Guetta and more, all put together with help from Los Unidades to raise money for Global Citizen. Watch the trailer for the EP below.
