Most artists pick up their guitar and head into their studio when inspiration strikes, however, Coldplay's Chris Martin does some of his best work in daughter Apple's Wendy house.

The singer/songwriter penned the track Charlie Brown from the group's new album Mylo Xyloto in the miniature house.

"This is the only song we ever wrote in a doll's house. I turned it into a studio because my daughter didn't like it," he told the Sun.

And this is not the only unusual element to the group's latest musical offering.

Speaking to MTV the band said that the LP is designed to tell a story.

 "It’s supposed to be about two people who grow up separately in a very big oppressive city, and they each are a bit lost in their lives," Martin said.

"They join this gang, meet, fall in love and then try and escape and fall out, then get back together.”

Previously it was stated that the album was inspired by old school graffiti, the White Rose movement and TV show The Wire,

Mylo Xyloto is the first concept album that the band have put together and will hits shelves on October 24th this year.

Other songs on it include Paradise, Hurts Like Heaven, Major Minus and Princess of China.
