Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has described Amy Winehouse as “the best singer I've heard in my life, apart from Beyonce.”

Martin's comments came in an interview with MTV, in which he described both singers as “beyond brilliant.”

“When you’re as talented as Amy or Beyonce you only have to have good songs,” he added.

Martin is friends with US R&B star Beyonce through her marriage to rapper Jay-Z – who he collaborated with last year.

Coldplay release their latest album 'Viva La Vida or Death and all His Friends' on Thursday (June 12th).

As Gigwise reported earlier, pre-sales for the record have broken records with some retailers, suggesting that the album will capture the number one spot on Sunday.
