Coldplay: Englishmen in New York

Nicholas Jennings, Inside Entertainment, April 2005

CHRIS MARTIN seems perfectly at home in the Big Apple. Although quintessentially English, the Coldplay frontman talks at New York speed, his mouth racing to keep up with his hyperactive mind. And he walks fast, with a New Yorker's sense of purpose, navigating Manhattan streets like a veteran. Martin is talking with boyish enthusiasm about Coldplay's next album, X & Y, revealing that it was largely motivated by his becoming a father and Coldplay's commitment to fighting global poverty.

Total word count of piece: 1991
