Since consciously uncoupling more than a year ago, Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have maintained one of the most amiable separations in the history of celebrity splits. So it shouldn't come as a huge surprise (although it is rather unexpected) that Paltrow is a contributing guest singer on Coldplay's upcoming album. 

Coldplay Announces New Album 'A Head Full of Dreams'

Coldplay's A Head Full of Dreams features Paltrow's vocals on "Everglow," marking her first credited appearance on a Coldplay song. While recording with the U.K. outfit might be new for her, singing certainly isn't. Paltrow duetted with Huey Lewis on a cover of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'" in the 2000 film Duets, sang honky-tonk in Country Strong and gave Glee one of its most popular digital downloads with her version of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide."

Paltrow isn't the only A-list guest on the album. Beyonce sings on two songs, "Hymn for the Weekend" and "Up&Up," the former song featuring "programming" from Avicii and the latter boasting guitar from Noel Gallagher. Tove Lo also sings on the track "Fun."

A Head Full of Dreams drops Dec. 4. Lead single "Adventure of a Lifetime" came out last week and hit No. 11 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks.
