The 'Birds' clip was shot at California's Salvation Mountain
Coldplay have launched the latest video from their album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’, revealing ‘Birds’ via Twitter today (January 2).
The clip is directed by Marcus Haney and is shot at California’s Salvation Mountain, a visionary environment created by outsider artist Leonard Knight in the Colorado Desert. There’s a suitably grainy, psychedelic aesthetic to the video with its kaleidoscopic effects and shots of the band having fun in the California sunshine. Watch the video for ‘Birds’ below:
Coldplay are currently riding high after the critical and commercial success of their seventh – and perhaps their final – album. ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ sees the four-piece assume a more revitalised, upbeat direction following their 2014 offering ‘Ghost Stories’. However, it’s not all positivity for the band – Chris Martin reportedly faces legal action following an alleged incident in Santa Monica during January last year, in which a photographer claims that the singer intentionally hit him with a car.
The band are set to play four dates at Wembley Stadium in the summer as part of their UK tour from June 15-19, 2016. The tour will be the band’s first in three years.
