However, speaking to BBC 6 Music, Wheeler admitted that he had been working with Coldplay. He said, "I showed up one day at the studio and they were starting to work on a song that, actually, I think had a bit of an influence from one of our recent singles.

It's almost like a pre-rehearsal. They were figuring out the arrangement and I was jamming along. They were actually recording it but I think they were going to go start from scratch again.
"There was one little guitar lick I was playing that I think Chris was quite excited about. I think they can slot that in. There's got to be a chance!"
