Coldplay’s new video, “Hymn For The Weekend,” has premiered. The vibrant, colorful video was filmed on location in Mumbai and features a guest appearance from Beyoncé (who adds dream-like vocals to the track). It was directed by Ben Mor and also features a cameo from Bollywood superstar Sonam Kapoor.
“Hymn For The Weekend” is from Coldplay’s acclaimed new album, A Head Full Of Dreams. Since its December 2015 release, the album has reached Number One on iTunes in more than 90 countries and sold over three million copies. It has also helped Coldplay to their current position as Spotify’s most-streamed band in the world. “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” the album’s first single, is a Top 5 hit at Alternative and AAA radio, in the Top 10 at Hot AC and will impact Top 40 radio in February. Views for the “Adventure Of A Lifetime” video exceed 85 million.
