Coldplay's seventh album, A Head Full Of Dreams, drops on Dec. 4, and so far, we've only heard a little bit of what it actually sounds like. Lead single "Adventure Of A Lifetime" is disco-y, while the two new tracks that popped up over the weekend -- "Up&Up" and the title track -- were as big and stadium-friendly as we'd expect.
But there's an even larger detail we're still waiting to find out about -- what exactly is President Obama doing on the title track to A Head Full Of Dreams?
"We have a tiny clip of the President singing 'Amazing Grace' at that church.

A source with ties to the band reportedly said that Obama wouldn't greenlight the use of his vocals for "just anyone," but as a fan of the band, Obama gave his approval.
Obama joins the mom-and-daughter duo of Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Carter as well as Tove Lo, Oasis' Noel Gallagher and, oddly, Martin's ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow on the long list previously announced guest performers for A Head Full Of Dreams.
