Two of the world’s biggest superstars have recorded a song together if OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder is to be believed. In a new interview, Tedder has announced that Adele and Beyoncé are both guests on an upcoming OneRepublic song, and they are joined by another very famous musician, Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
The song is featured on the forthcoming OneRepublic album, Human, which is expected to be released in November.
Tedder revealed in the interview that, “We have one song featuring Beyoncé and Adele, with a Chris Martin piano solo in the bridge.”
Tedder has worked with both artists as a songwriter in the past.
With Beyoncé, he worked on “Halo,” “XO,” and “I Was Here,” and with Adele on “Rumor Has It,” “Turning Tables,” and “Remedy.”
Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin presents a piano solo to the song. Tedder gave no further details, although some social media users have suggested that he was kidding.
Adele has not released a single since 2016’s ‘Water Under the Bridge’, from her acclaimed third LP 25. The English singer has made very limited public appearances since then, fuelling speculation among fans that she is working on new music.
Beyoncé’s newest album was the soundtrack to this year’s Lion King remake. She had produced and curated the album.
“The bottom line is, we do have an album’s worth of material, and that’s the good news,” Tedder said. “So we’ve been dropping song after song. [Recent single] ‘Rescue Me’ was kind of the first… getting the wheels turning again, and we have a lot more songs to come. We have one song featuring both Beyoncé and Adele, with a Chris Martin piano solo in the mix.”
Tedder previously co-wrote Beyoncé’s singles ‘Halo’, ‘XO’ and ‘I Was Here’, and collaborated with Adele on the songs ‘Remedy’, ‘Rumour Has It’ and ‘Turning Tables’.
