Coldplay has revealed the video for “Up&Up,” the anthemic third single from their current album, A Head Full Of Dreams. Created by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, the video is a poignant, surrealist montage that alludes to contemporary issues. It also features racehorses galloping on water and a popcorn-spouting volcano.
“Up&Up” is the closing track from A Head Full Of Dreams, which has reached Number One on iTunes in more than 90 countries, sold more than 3.5 million copies and cemented Coldplay’s position as Spotify’s most-streamed band in the world. The song features a host of guest appearances, including vocals from Beyoncé and legendary “Gimme Shelter” singer Merry Clayton, as well as a guitar solo from Noel Gallagher.
Coldplay will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tomorrow, May 17th, and Good Morning America on Wednesday, May 18th.
The first official remix of Coldplay’s “Hymn For The Weekend” – created by Norwegian production duo Seeb, whose remix of Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” has topped the charts around the world – was released last Friday.
Having begun with a record-breaking run of dates in Latin America, Coldplay’s A Head Full Of Dreams tour resumes in Nice on May 24th. The North American leg kicks off on July 16th. More than two million tickets have already been sold for the tour. Coldplay will also headline Glastonbury Festival for a record-breaking fourth time in June.
