Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has admitted that he wrote a track which features on the band's new album 'Mylo Xyloto' in his daughter Apple's doll's house.

Speaking to The Sun, the singer told of how he wrote 'Charlie Brown', which the band have been previewing in their live shows during the summer, in a doll's house which he has sinced turned into a studio because his daughter didn't like it.

Asked how he wrote 'Charlie Brown', Martin replied: "This is the only song we ever wrote in a doll's house. I turned it into a studio because my daughter didn't like it."

The singer also revealed yesterday (September 21) that 'Mylo Xyloto' is a concept album and almost became a musical. He added: "Our new record is sort of a story – it's not quite a musical, but it's dangerously close."

'Mylo Xyloto' is released on October 24, the band tour the UK in December, playing a total of three arena shows on the trek.
