Coldplay think that their lyrics are...not the best

In an interview with NME, Coldplay discuss their new album 'Mylo Xyloto'and reveal that they don't think that they are the best songwriters.

Chris Martin put it bluntly and said that their lyrics aren't the best, except for album track, 'Charlie Brown':

"I know our lyrics are a bit shit, but (the ones for 'Charlie Brown') I like them a lot"

The album is to be released on October 24 but the Grammy-winning band say that there are a lot of highlights to be found on the album, including their song, 'Princess Of China', with Rihanna.

Martin, who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, says that that song is his highlight of their fifth album:

"Because we put the whole thing through as a story and there's a boy and a girl part, we thought 'who would we like to play the part of the girl?' 'Princess Of China' was very much a back and forth, a duet...Top of our list was Rihanna. Bottom of our list was nobody else. We waited about a year and a half to pluck up the courage to ask her. That's my favourite bit of the album. It's the only bit I can bear to listen to because I'm not on it".
