In a surprising guest spot, Gwyneth Paltrow will feature on Coldplay’s A Head Full Of Dreams, joining artists Beyoncé and Tove Lo on the upcoming album.

Despite having “consciously uncoupled” from frontman Chris Martin las year, the Iron Man actress is set to appear on the fourth track of the album, “Everglow”, according to Billboard.

Noel Gallagher and Avicii will also feature on the album, yet won’t be singing. Instead, the ex-Oasis troubadour will be playing guitar, while the Swedish hit-maker will produce one of the band's tracks, having previously worked with them on “Sky Full of Stars”.

Paltrow previously teamed up with Huey Lewis for the soundtrack to 2000 film Duets, performing a cover of Smokey Robinson's “Cruisin’’, while also doing a cover of Fleetwood Mac's “Landslide” for Glee.

A Head Full Of Dreams will be released on the 4 December, just in time for Christmas. The album’s artwork has been accused of ripping off Bring Me The Horizon’s Sempiternal, both having the geometric shape ‘flower of life’ predominantly featured.
