Coldplay's Chris Martin Knows New Album Isn't For Everybody

(Radio.com) Chris Martin doesn't think his band's new album is for everyone, but he's proud of it anyway. The Coldplay frontman talked with Carson Daly Friday morning (May 16) on 97.1 AMP Radio/Los Angeles in promotion of the band's sixth studio album, Ghost Stories, due out Tuesday (May 20).

Martin explained that the album is about "life itself and all its glorious colorfulness" - the album the quartet wanted to make. "With this one I feel really proud," Martin told Daly. "I feel like we made exactly what we wanted to make. It's a strange feeling because we've only really achieved that once or twice before.

"To me, we've made a flavor of ice cream and we made it really well. Some people may not want that flavor that day or might not like ice cream. It doesn't make me question that we should have made it. This is something we specifically designed. It isn't for everybody. It's never easy when someone says, 'I really don't like your music.' In this instance, there's nothing I can do about it, 'cause this is exactly what we were supposed to make."

For the album, Coldplay enlisted help from an unlikely source on "A Sky Full of Stars" - EDM star Avicii. "That's not really something that we could have done 15 years ago but now I feel like you're just free to do anything you like," he said. "This song came out in five minutes. It just came through. The first person we thought of to produce it was Tim, Avicii. He was very sweet and we pushed him so hard on it. I'm so grateful that he lent us his backwards baseball hat services." more on this story
