The band shared the video for the track, which was directed by Mary Wigmore, on their official website. They are currently believed to be working on their sixth studio album. A spokesperson for the band’s label confirmed Coldplay are “working on new music, coming soon”.

In September last year, meanwhile, the group revealed their track ‘Atlas’, which was taken from the soundtrack to the film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and in December 2013 they played a surprise intimate show at a pub in Somerset where they treated drinkers to tracks including ‘Yellow’, ‘The Scientist’ and ‘Paradise’.

Coldplay are set to appear at this year’s South By Southwest in Austin, Texas. The British band will perform on the first night of iTunes Festival at SXSW, the first time the music provider has brought its own festival to the US event. Coldplay will play live in a bill which also includes Imagine Dragons on March 11 at ACL Live at the Moody Theatre.

Coldplay released their debut album, ‘Parachutes’, in 2000 and have since gone on to make LPs including ‘A Rush Of Blood To The Head’ (2002), ‘X&Y’ (2005) and ‘Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends’ (2008). Their last effort, ‘Mylo Xyloto’, was released in October 2011 and went on to sell over eight million copies worldwide.
