Coldplay frontman Chris Martin revealed his experiences with psychedelic mushrooms during an appearance on comedian Pete Holmes’ ‘You Made It Weird’ podcast.

The subject of magic mushrooms seemed to pop into the episode around 76 minutes in, where Holmes asked if he had ever taken psychedelics; Martin replied, “Only once, on mushrooms.”

“I loved it, and that was good; it sort of confirmed my suspicions about the universe. I was like, okay, yep, that seems to be true,” he explained. “I don’t do so well on drugs and alcohol; it messes with the music. Some people, it enhances it. For me, it doesn’t.”

On the subject, Martin referred to electronic musician Jon Hopkins’ upcoming album, ‘Music for Psychedelic Therapy,’ saying that it reminded how “you don’t actually need to take anything to get to that place.”

“I felt like after I did mushrooms once, that was really the confirmation I needed of how I feel about the universe, so I don’t need to do that again… but I think, for other people, it’s just amazing what it does.”
