Coldplay is taking over the countdown! Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland are taking over Ryan Seacrest’s mic and guest-hosting American Top 40 this weekend, May 8th & 9th.

The band will count down the chart’s hottest songs fresh off the debut of their brand new single “Higher Power” which officially drops on Friday, May 7.

“Higher Power” is produced by songwriting guru Max Martin and comes after the band teased a new project dubbed “Alien Radio” last week.

“Higher Power is a song that arrived on a little keyboard and a bathroom sink at the start of 2020,” the group previously shared on social media. “It was produced by Max Martin who is a true wonder of the universe.”

Stay tuned to hear the debut of “Higher Power” and don’t miss Chris and Jonny on American Top 40 this weekend.
