In-demand songwriter Steve Mac admits he would love to write a song with Coldplay and Liam Gallagher but he doesn't think he'll be getting a call to pen a track for the former Oasis singer's second solo album

Steve Mac admits Coldplay are top of his wish list of artists he wants to work with.

The acclaimed songwriter has penned tracks for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Leona Lewis and Anne-Marie among many others and is very much in-demand in the studio but he is hoping for a call from Chris Martin to create a song for the 'Paradise' hitmakers.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the ASCAP London Music Awards on Tuesday (23.10.18), he said: "You know what? I've pretty much worked with everyone that I've wanted to. Listen, if Coldplay call up or Florence Welch calls up or somebody like that, I won't turn it down."

Steve is also a fan of Liam Gallagher and would be interested in working with the former Oasis frontman on his second album – the follow-up to 2017's 'As You Were' – but he thinks it's unlikely to happen.

He added: "I'm not sure I'm cool enough for Liam, I'm not sure I'm going to get that call."

Steve was on-hand to collect a slew of awards including ASCAP Song of the Year and ASCAP Top Digital Song for 'Shape of You', the global smash he penned with Ed and Johnny McDaid.

The music maestro is beyond thrilled with the success of the 2017 single which has achieved over a billion streams on Spotify and topped the charts in countries all over the world and he admits it's a great feeling to have created such an iconic song.

Speaking about the impact the song has had on his career, Steve said: "I've gone from Susan Boyle and the middle of the road stuff to the last year-and-a-half going back to doing pop music and it's just been extraordinary. Just absolutely loved it. Having the best time of my life."
