    Chris Martin on BBC Radio 4 extra this Thursday (7th July)

The DJ will be Mel Giedroyc on her 'The 4 O'Clock Show'. More discussion ahead of this interview can be found at the Coldplay forum here now [thanks 42rock89]


    Last time Chris Martin was on BBC Radio 4 back in 2008, he walked out of the interview while promoting the band's new album. Nine minutes into the pre-recorded interview for Radio 4 arts show Front Row,Chris asked to leave the studio as he was not enjoying himself. Will Champion, was left to answer questions from presenter John Wilson until Chris returned for one final question. When asked about a speech he made at a music awards ceremony in 2005 where he said the band would be away "for a very long time", Chris said: "I always say stupid things and I think Radio 4 is the place that will most remind me of that."

    Presenter John Wilson questioned whether the new album - full title, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends - was a morbid reflection of the band's lyrical obsession with death. "I wouldn't agree with you there at all, no," said Chris. "I'd say you're journalistically twisting me into saying something I don't really mean."


    A few minutes later, Martin said he was "not really enjoying this" and that he did not really like "having to talk about things". Will answered the remaining questions before Chris returned to answer a final question, about finding new musical territory, with the response: "Um....yes...yes, yes....exactly..."
