Chris also told Zane that he doesn’t expect that any of One Direction will go single because of the great chemistry they have. He said: “I think One Direction are the biggest band in the world, their songs are great. I’m saying One Direction are brilliant and I’m not kidding.”
“You know why? Because their songs are really good and I don’t think that any of them are going to go solo. I think they appreciate their chemistry from watching their movie… Harry [Styles] has come to a couple of our shows, I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry.” Although Martin admitted that he struggles to remember their conversation because he was too “enamored with Harry’s haircut”. “I was like this: ‘I was pretty sure I was a straight guy before’ – I was having a hot flush,” he joked.
During his interview with Zane Lowe, Chris also talks about the false headlines about his split with wife Gwyneth Paltrow as well as the release of Coldplay’s new album.
