Watch Coldplay Walk Among Clouds in ‘Up&Up’ Video
New ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ single explores the band’s sense of wonder
Coldplay’s new “Up&Up” video harnesses a childlike wonder. It’s a surreal adventure filled with eagles flying underwater, cars circling Saturn’s rings and volcanoes spewing popcorn. The clip, co-directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, also depicts the band members as giants walking among mountains and clouds.
“Up&Up” is the third single from Coldplay’s seventh studio album A Head Full of Dreams. The band will tour behind the LP from May to September, with an American leg launching July 16th in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The trek will conclude September 3rd in San Francisco.
Last month, Chris Martin performed with teenage band the A-Sides at a Santa Monica benefit concert. In his first gig since Prince’s death, the frontman paid tribute to the Purple One with a set-closing rendition of “Raspberry Beret.” In March, Martin joined Jimmy Fallon to honor another late music icon, David Bowie, with a stripped-down Tonight Show cover of “Life on Mars?”
