Chris Martin jokes he ‘forced’ kids to appear on new song

BANG! NEWS – The 42-year-old Coldplay front-man has revealed his children – Apple, 15, and Moses, 13 – appearance on his new track Orphans was just by chance.

Speaking to Radio.com, Chris Martin quipped, “Well we’ve always kind of forced our children to work. We really appreciate the Victorian times of young British children getting an honest day’s pay. Whenever we’re on tour, any of the kids that are around, we’ll drag them on stage for something or other. It just so happened that when I was doing the demo of that song Orphans I just asked my children and a couple of their friends, and then ultimately loads more people if they would sing the chorus. They’re so sweet about it, and of course we do pay them properly. Of course I’m bias, but I really like listening to them. So to be me they made the song sound great.”

Meanwhile, Chris previously revealed he had asked his kids if they wanted to appear on the song rather than the other way around.

Speaking about how his kids got involved, he said, “I pay them, proper fees like everyone. And they are allowed to say no.”
