frontman Chris Martin
rarely shares a bed with wife Gwyneth Paltrow
when he is writing music - because he works at night in a hidden corner of their London home.
The singer confesses the creative process is a tortuous one for him, and his best lyrics are often fueled by insomnia.
Martin, currently promoting the band's new album Viva La Vida
, tells Rolling Stone
magazine, "My problem is that I often take a sleeping pill in order to go to sleep, but then I get excited about a song, so I go and play music, and then it kind of kicks in halfway through. I have a little corner where nobody can hear me in the middle of the night, and that's where I spend most of the night times. I wake up the next morning and find these strange notes to myself. I'm a little bit ashamed about it."
