Ricky Gervais signs up Coldplay’s Chris Martin to record music for David Brent movie

Life on the Road soundtrack to include Martin


A David Brent movie wouldn’t be complete without a killer soundtrack and creator Ricky Gervais has called on a rather famous friend to help out: Coldplay’s Chris Martin. 


While working on Brent’s upcoming big-screen outing Life on the Road, Gervais has kept his fans updated with various tweets and pictures of his progress. And it was apparently one of these tweets, spotted by an eagle-eyed fan, that originally revealed Gervais had called on Martin. 

“Amazing first day recording vocals for the David Brent soundtrack album. With a little help from my friends,” read the supposed post, along with a picture of the two grinning at the camera. It was seemingly deleted by Gervais. But today he’s posted a new message with the snap:

It’s not the first time Martin has worked with Gervais, having happily sent himself up in an episode of Extras. And everyone needs more of this, right?


Life on the Road is expected to be in cinemas next year
