Los Angeles, June 23 - Singer Chris Martin is said to be helping model Alexa Chung launch a music career.
The Coldplay frontman is believed to have met up with the 30-year-old model in New York last month, where she played him songs she had been working on and the 37-year-old singer was impressed, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He listened to a demo album of tracks, which he played to his Coldplay bandmates and his producer contacts, and has already set up meetings for her with his Coldplay record label, Parlophone, as well as his friend Jay Z's Roc Nation record label, a source was quoted by Heat magazine as saying.
The model-turned-presenter first became interested in joining the music industry while she was dating Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner - who she was with for four years until July 2011.
The source said: She was on the verge of doing something when she was going out with Alex Turner, but instead she decided to move to New York and continue to write and work on her music.
The last thing she wanted to do was launch herself into the music world and be a flop, which she knew would be career suicide.
