Chris Martin resorted to typing out his answers in a Text to Speech app during an interview after losing his voice from singing too much.
The Coldplay frontman typed his words onto an iPad keyboard, and his answers were then read out in a robotic British voice known as Arthur.
In the interview with The Sunday Times, Martin was the victim of numerous self-inflicted typos, consisting of composing “calamity crisis” rather of “climate crisis” and calling Nick Cave a “dazzling Julie” rather than a “brilliant junkie”.

Part of the interview happened in the back of a cars and truck, as Martin had to leave early to go to Harley Street for a consultation about his throat.
Martin sat with a keyboard on his lap and the iPad on the seat between him a job interviewer Jonathan Dean. “Mark is a fantastic chauffeur,” he typed, about his chauffeur. “Mark hates me.”
Coldplay’s new album, Everyday Life, was released on Friday 22 November and was given 3 stars by The Independent‘s critic Adam White.
The band just recently made headings for stating they would not explore the world with their brand-new record unless concerts are eco-friendly.
