Chris Martin doesn’t think his band’s new album is for everyone, but he’s proud of it anyway.

The Coldplay frontman talked with Carson Daly this morning (May 16) on 97.1 AMP Radio/Los Angeles in promotion of the band’s sixth studio album, Ghost Stories, due out next Tuesday (May 20).

Martin explained that the album is about “life itself and all its glorious colorfulness” — the album the quartet wanted to make.

“With this one I feel really proud,” Martin told Daly. “I feel like we made exactly what we wanted to make. It’s a strange feeling because we’ve only really achieved that once or twice before.

It doesn’t make me question that we should have made it. This is something we specifically designed. It isn’t for everybody. It’s never easy when someone says, ‘I really don’t like your music.’ In this instance, there’s nothing I can do about it, ’cause this is exactly what we were supposed to make.”
