Coldplay have revealed that David Bowie turned down the chance to collaborate with them.
In an interview with NME, the band’s Will Champion says the legendary musician - who passed away last week, aged 69 - passed on a collaboration. Coldplay had put together a track with a multi-part harmony, but Bowie wasn’t interested. “It’s not a very good song, is it?” he told them.
“He was very discerning,” said Champion. “He wouldn’t just put his name to anything. I’ll give him credit for that.”
