Coldplay's Chris Martin has praised Kanye West for changing the way we listen to music.

In an interview with BBC Radio 1, the frontman said he believes that music consumers are no longer restricted to a particular genre.


''Don't you think that music now shouldn't fall into a particular box? I don't think anyone thinks like that any more. You don't see so many goths, hippies, rockers and hip hoppers any more. People like Kanye West are changing the way we all listen and the internet.''

He added: ''Look at Tinie Tempah. Just the song Pass Out has about eight different types of music in it. This time, we're on our fifth record, we're all in our early to mid-30s so there's an element of, 'If we don't make it now we've got to give up.''

Coldplay and Rihanna's duet 'Princess of China has debuted online.

The track, which can be listened to below on Gigwise, is taken from the band's forthcoming new album 'Mylo Xyloto', set for release on October 24.
