Poll Results: U2 Fans Mixed About Possibility of Chris Martin on New Album

@U2, July 31, 2013

Ever since Chris Martin was spotted inside Electric Lady Studios while U2 was there working on the band's new album, there's been speculation that the Coldplay singer might make an appearance on a new song (or more). And there's been a mix of joy and teeth-gnashing from fans about it.

So, in our most recent poll question, we quantified what the online fanbase thinks about the prospect of Chris Marting singing on a U2 song. We received more than 4,000 votes for this question, and the results were split fairly evenly: About 40 percent either loved the idea or were okay with it, while almost 46 percent didn't like or hated it. That's a pretty even split, but the "hate it" votes far surpassed the "love it" votes, by about 31 percent to 18 percent.

Here are the full results:

Meanwhile, we've added a new poll question on our home page asking if you think U2's new album will leak online before the release date.
