Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was “joking” when he said he regrets giving the band’s last album a bizarre title.
During an appearance on breakfast TV show Good Morning America last week, the singer suggested the name of the group’s last album, Mylo Xyloto, had become a hindrance because foreign fans struggle to pronounce it.

He said, “It’s just something that we thought looked really good but everywhere we go around the world people pronounce it in the most crazy ways and we’re beginning to regret it now.”

However, Martin is adamant the comment was made in jest and they actually have no regrets about the title.

In a post on the band’s page, he writes, “No regrets at all about Mylo Xyloto as album title. We love it. Only regret attempting joke on early morning TV. CM.”
