Tinie Tempah has given an update on his progress in recording his second studio album and has revealed that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has been "a big influence" on the record.

Speaking about the album in this week's NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now, the rapper said that his new record has a "progressive quality" and features a number of high-profile guests.

Asked if Dizzee Rascal and the Coldplay feature on the follow-up to 'Disc-Overy', Tinie replied: "Everybody who I've said before and who you've mentioned I've been in with, whether they've vocal-ed something or listened to something or even mentored. Chris Martin has been quite an influence on this album."

Then asked if the record sounded at all like Coldplay, the rapper said: "It's definitely a lot more progressive in the quality of the sound. I've been listening to Lykke Li and Lana Del Rey, the dynamics of the sound, how big and anthemic it gets."
