‘Coldplay’ front man Chris Martin has announced that he has no plans to leave the group for a solo career and he will only do so if he splits from wife Gwyneth Paltrow.
Martin said that he can’t think of “anything worse” or less likely than him quitting the band to go it alone,Contactmusic reported.
Asked if he would release a solo album,he said: “It would probably mean I’ve been dumped by my wife and I desperately need the money,” Martin said.
“Hell would not only have to freeze over but be skated over and closed up. The Pope would have to declare it didn’t even exist. I cannot think of anything worse,” Martin added.
The 32-year-old singer who has two children,Apple,five,and Moses,three,with Paltrow also warned fans to expect more humour on the group’s next album as he finally feels old enough to be witty.
“We’re not as lyrically mature as all that yet. We’re still dealing with teenage angst. We’re working our way up to witticisms,” the singer said.
“There has to be some spark that takes you by surprise. Some word will just send your mind going. Like falafel. That hasn’t happened yet. But then I would probably go to the guitar,and since it’s falafel,I would probably start with an F chord,and then I probably would try to link it to the breakdown of a relationship,” Marin said.
