Today, Coldplay revealed the video for “A Head Full Of Dreams,” the title track from their new hit album. Watch it now above.
The video was filmed in Mexico City in April during the band’s sold-out Latin American stadium tour. Directed by Marcus Haney and shot predominantly on Super 8mm film, it features the band members cycling to their show at the city’s Foro Sol venue, where they set a new attendance record. The video begins with Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Great Dictator, which also opens the band’s live show.
A Head Full Of Dreams, Coldplay’s seventh album, reached Number One on iTunes in more than 90 countries and has sold in excess of four million copies. The album remains in the UK Top Ten some 38 weeks after its December 2015 release, and has helped Coldplay to maintain their position as the band with most worldwide listeners on Spotify throughout 2016.
The U.S. leg of Coldplay’s A Head Full Of Dreams tour resumes this weekend with two nights at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. The tour has already taken the band across Latin America and Europe, where they played four sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium. More than two million tickets have already been sold for the tour. Further dates for 2017 are expected to be announced soon.
The videos for the album’s first three singles – “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” “Hymn For The Weekend” and “Up&Up” – have already been viewed a combined 955 million times on YouTube. They have also earned the band three nominations at the upcoming MTV VMAs in New York, for Best Rock Video (“Adventure Of A Lifetime”) plus Best Direction and Best Visual Effects (“Up&Up”).
