Tinie Tempah has said that Coldplay’s Chris Martin has had “quite an influence” on the recording of his second album.

Saying that various people have “listened to something or even mentored” him on the direction of his second longplayer, Tempah told NME: “Chris Martin has been quite an influence on this album. It’s definitely a lot more progressive in the quality of the sound. I’ve [also] been listening to Lykke Li and Lana Del Rey, the dynamics of the sound, how big and anthemic it gets”.
