"Ghost Stories" About Chris Martin's Weakness

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's split in March took many by surprise. And with Coldplay's new album "Ghost Stories" out, Martin remains adamant that the group will not give up honesty for the sake of privacy.

As E! covers the album's release party at the iHeartRadio theatre in Burbank California, the front man pointed out that the band made a choice 15 years ago to be honest in everything they recorded and performed. With around 450 fans in attendance, the band kept that promise.

Vulnerability seemed to be a theme throughout "Ghost Stories." 


"I think in life everyone needs to be broken in some way."

Prior to the release party, he told the BBC's Zane Lowe that "O (Fly On)" was hard to listen to in part because the couple's daughter, Apple, sings at the end. 

Martin's candidness over his lack of vulnerability in his relationship permeates the album. In the interview with the BBC, he continues to point out that "if you don't really let love in, you can't really give it back." While the heartbreak is real, the audience will understand the inability to really give back and love someone if you're empty inside. That the risks and pain are worth the reward.

And Chris seems to want the opportunity to learn the value of growing up and to "not really run away" from the challenges life hands.

While not directly referencing the "conscious uncoupling" between Martin and Paltrow, the singer does imply that the record will show the slow realizations of a man seeking change. He admits to not being able to handle the enjoyment of professional and personal successes: "About two years ago, I was a mess really because I can't enjoy the thing that we are good at." Martin now wants to take the chance to make changes and "not blame anyone else" for any inadequacies.

As the band played "Magic," "Viva La Vida," "Sky Full of Stars," and "True Love" to the audience, a theme of growth seems occur between songs. When iHeartRadio and Yahoo stream the music on Monday, fans will notice how important honesty remains for the post-breakup Martin when he finally displays the once-feared vulnerability.

As Coldplay ended the show with "Clocks" "O (Fly On)" he concluded the show by saying he felt "blessed" to be in the band. Th gathering of fans witnessed Martin's rendition of "O (Fly On)," a song describing a romantic partner trying to live up to the goodness of the other partner. And the realization the once stabilizing partner must move on for their own growth. 

Martin seems to be appreciating the "wonder inside" of unguarded availability.
