Coldplay frontman Chris Martin believes that people are so concerned about the band splitting up even words of thanks at the end of gigs are being misconstrued.
Sparking off rumours that the band would be taking a three-year hiatus at an Australian gig after a few words were taken the wrong way by fans, Chris has now confirmed that the band have started recording the follow up to fifth album Mylo Xyloto.
"I've been writing songs and I'm so fired up about the band's future. I'm fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop," he told the Daily Star.
"This three-year break only came about because I said at a gig in Australia that we might not be back there for three years. That's probably true, but that's just how a world tour works. No chance are we taking a three-year break."
The frustrated musician said: "It happens to us every album. I say on stage, 'I'll see you in a bit', then we always bring out another album and look silly because everyone's like, 'I thought you retired?'"
Keen to carry on his music career for as long as possible, the star couldn't resist ending his comments on a cheeky quip.
"The album is definitely coming, unless the rest of the band decide to pursue their modelling careers of course - goodness knows mine is over."
