Nuevo video de Coldplay para «Higher Power»


El nuevo sencillo de Coldplay , » Higher Power «, tiene un nuevo video musical. Dirigida por Dave Meyers , la imagen es una odisea de ciencia ficción en el planeta Kaotica con perros robot y alienígenas bailando. El comunicado de prensa menciona referencias a Terminator , Blade Runner y The Fifth Element . Ambiguous Dance Company de Seúl aparece en el video. Míralo a continuación.

«El video es una metáfora de cómo, en este momento, todos nos sentimos alienados, muy alejados de nuestro mundo, casi como si estuviéramos en un planeta alienígena», dijo Meyers en un comunicado. «Y, en última instancia, encontramos el amor en las calles y esa euforia nos lanza a la estratosfera de nuestra propia energía y poder superior».

Coldplay Share Home Movies, Dance on the Ceiling in ‘Orphans’ Video: Watch


must embed video

Coldplay give fans a peek at the process in the jubilant video for their new single «Orphans,» which dropped on Friday morning (Oct. 25). The clip, directed by the band’s longtime friend and documentarian Mat Whitecross, opens with a shot of singer Chris Martin strumming out the joyous tune’s opening verse on some city steps as crowds walk by seemingly oblivious.

The action then bounces between the studio sessions for the song and black and white footage of the band playing it in a backyard and on a beach as a group of young people dance around them while production notes about the themes of the video scroll across the screen. With flowers bursting all around, the group performs the song upside down and sideways in a bombed-out room, in front of a green screen filled with blooms and and in box packed with more youthful dancers.

Coldplay announced on Thursday (Oct. 24) that their eighth studio album, the double LP Everyday Life, is due out on Nov. 22 via Parlophone/Atlantic Records and will be divided into two halves, Sunrise and Sunset. They also dropped the dual lead singles: «Orphans» and the Stromae-assisted «Arabesque,» both produced by The Dream Team, with the latter also featuring horns by Nigerian saxophonist  Femi Kuti and his backing band.

Earlier this week, the band revealed the LP’s 16-song track list via the classified sections of the hometown newspapers of its four members, and the sepia-tinged cover art is based on a 1919 photo of guitarist Jonny Buckland’s great-grandfather’s band, The Wedding Band and Dance Orchestra.

Coldplay Performs Linkin Park Tribute at North American Tour Kickoff


On the first date of their 2017 North American tour, Coldplay paid tribute to Linkin Park, which lost its frontman Chester Bennington last month.

Near the end of the performance at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Tuesday night (Aug. 1), Coldplay leader Chris Martin performed a solo cover of Linkin Park smash «Crawling» on piano.

He dedicated the performance to «anyone who’s missing someone,» and restarted the song after flubbing the opening, noting that he wanted to get it right since it would likely end up on YouTube.

Bennington passed away at the age of 41 on July 20. Linkin Park and Blink-182were scheduled to perform in the New York area days prior to the Coldplay show, but the co-headlining tour was cancelled following Bennington’s death.

Coldplay’s debut album, Parachutes, was released five months before Linkin Park’s first full-length Hybrid Theory in 2000. Both groups have since sold millions of albums each in the United States.

See fan-shot footage of «Crawling» below.

Coldplay Drops Eerie, Atmospheric Charity Single “A L I E N S”


Coldplay continues to drip feed songs from their upcoming Kaleidoscope EP (due July 14) with a new single called “A L I E N S.” The eerie track, which was co-written and co-produced by the legendary Brian Eno, will raise money for the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) — an international NGO that rescues refugees at sea. The act of fleeing terror is reflected in the animated lyric video. Directed by Diane Martel and Ben Jones, the visual follows a family of extraterrestrials as they escape their planet.

The band’s Kaleidoscope EP is shaping up to be something of a mixed bag, in the best possible sense. It includes their chart-conquering smash with The Chainsmokers, “Something Just Like This,” as well as a collaboration with rapper Big Sean called “Miracles (Someone Special).” When you throw in the old school “All I Can Think About Is You” and the experimental “A L I E N S,” fans are in for a genre-bending treat. Watch the lyric video below.

Coldplay Share New Song «All I Can Think About Is You»

The understated track opens the band’s upcoming ‘Kaleidoscope’ EP.

Coldplay shared a new song called «All I Can Think About Is You» on Thursday (June 15), the opening track from the band’s forthcoming Kaleidoscope EP.

The understated song rides on a rolling bassline and steady rhythm with light guitar licks that mesmerize as they build to a soaring climax. The track arrived with an equally trippy animated lyric video directed by I Saw John First. Watch it here:

As well, Coldplay confirmed the track listing for the five-song Kaleidoscope EP, which will be released digitally July 14 and on physical formats Aug. 4.

The EP was produced by Rik Simpson with Daniel Green and Bill Rahko and includes a live version of Coldplay’s «Something Just Like This» collaboration with The Chainsmokers that was recorded in Tokyo in April.

It also includes a collaboration with Big Sean called «Miracles (Someone Special)» and the song «A L I E N S,» which was written with Brian Eno and co-produced by Eno and Markus Dravs. See the full track list below.

The previously released closing track «Hypnotised» also has an accompanying app developed by Eno and Peter Chivers that allows fans to play along with the track. It’s available now for free download via 

Coldplay’s Kaleidoscope EP track list:

1. All I Can Think About Is You

#HotCollaboration: The Chainsmokers & Coldplay


Relax, it’s ok! I know a lot of fans feared the worst when they heard Coldplay had joined forces with The Chainsmokers, but “Something Just Like This” works. And it’s really not that surprising. Drew and Alex’s rise to the top of EDM has been fueled by emo-bangers like “Closer” and “All We Know,” while Chris Martin & Co. have been playing with our emotions since the arrival of Parachutes way back in 2000.

The Chainsmokers & Coldplay Team Up For New Single “Something Just Like This”

It’s also not the band’s first dalliance with dance. After all, Avicii produced “A Sky Full Of Stars” and that’s now viewed as something of a late classic.

“She said, ‘Where you want to go? How much you want to risk?’ I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gift, some superhero, some fairytale bliss,” Chris croons over shimmery synths. “Just something I can turn to, somebody I can kiss. I want something just like this.” It’s all very polite and romantic until The Chainsmokers pull the trigger with a “Roses”-like drop. On the first listen, I don’t love it as much as “Paris” or “Don’t Let Me Down,” but everyone escapes with their dignity intact. Give it a spin below.
