Chris Martin feels "suicidal" when Coldplay release a new album.

The 'Every Teardrop is a Waterfall' hitmaker - whose group brought out their fifth LP, 'Mylo Xyloto', this week - panics that fans may not like their new material as much as his earlier work.

He said: "The day our albums come out I want to kill myself. Really, I feel suicidal.

"Before our albums come out I feel that we still own it, that we have control over our music.

"But once it's out there in the world it's no longer ours. I start to panic and think, 'What if people don't like this album? What if it's the one our biggest fans don't like?' "

Despite his comments, Chris is confident people will enjoy the group's latest album.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I'm more excited than ever about 'Milo Xyloto' as I think it's our best work. I'm hopeful others will love it."

However, Chris recently joked that fans can "burn" the album if they don't like it.

He said: "I think it's one of our roundest albums, it's almost A Perfect Circle of a CD, it costs less than £20 and if you don't like it you can always burn it to get some warmth, so it's a three-pronged reason to buy it."
