Wish I Was Here soundtrack - Cat Power and Coldplay
We have seen high profile collaborations over the years involving Coldplay, such as with Rihanna on Princess of China and Kylie Minogue on Lhuna and appearing on stage with the band during their recent Ghost Stories show in Sydney. Chris has even shared studios with well known stars such as Jay-Z and most recently Sweedish producer, Avicii. Based on previous collaborations then, Coldplay's new song with Cat Power, the singer/songwriter and occasional actress is certainly lower on the fame scale!
The song in question is Wish I Was Here, part of the soundtrack to the film of the same title, 'the spiritual follow up' from 2004's Garden State from actor and director, Zach Braff, who rose to fame through his starring role in TV show, Scrubs as Dr. John Dorian. Mr Braff is a self confessed Coldplay fan and he chose Coldplay's Don't Panic to start off the soundtrack for Garden State, 10 years ago.
How did the unlikely collaboration come about?
