Frontman Chris Martin told the BBC today that the band is not going on tour to promote its latest album because it wants to take time to determine how a tour can be beneficial to the environment.

 “We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral," said Mr Martin.

He said the band has had a number of major tours and wants to find a way to make the next tour more about giving than taking.

The album Everyday Life will be released today.
