Coldplay continue to be honest about plagiarising other artists' work - new single SPEED OF SOUND is heavily inspired by Kate Bush's RUNNING UP THAT HILL.

The Clocks rockers has already admitted to using KRAFTWERK samples and Elbow's GRACE UNDER PRESSURE track on their new album X+Y, and now they've admitted to borrowing heavily from Bush's 1985 hit for their current single.

Bass player Guy Berryman explains, "We were listening to a Kate Bush song called Running Up That Hill and we were really trying to recreate the drums on that song for this song, and the chords.

"Some bands are reluctant to admit that they take things from other artists and bands that they listen to and we're shameless in that respect, we don't mind telling."
