COLDPLAY UNVEIL “ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME”VIDEO ON FACEBOOK

 

Band Members Appear As Chimps In Groundbreaking Animated Clip

 

Coldplay Will Perform On “Ellen” On December 4 And On

“The Late Late Show With James Corden” On December 7

 

New Album, A Head Full Of Dreams, Out December 4

 

Today, Coldplay revealed the exuberant, chimp-led music video for “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” the first single from their new album, A Head Full Of Dreams. The video is available exclusively on the band’s Facebook page at facebook.com/coldplay. (See below for the embed code.)

 

Directed by Mat Whitecross, the animated clip came about after Coldplay’s Chris Martin bumped into actor and motion capture expert Andy Serkis (Lord Of The Rings, King Kong) on a flight, and the two hatched a plan to collaborate. The video, which took six months to make, began with a studio shoot with the band in full motion performance capture rigs. Animators Mathematic then collaborated with motion capture experts Imaginarium to transform the four musicians into 3D chimpanzees.

 

Coldplay will celebrate the release of A Head Full Of Dreams (Parlophone/Atlantic Records) with an appearance on “Ellen” on the day of the album’s release – Friday, December 4. The band will perform on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on December 7.

 

A Head Full Of Dreams is the vibrant follow-up to 2014’s Ghost Stories, Coldplay’s sixth consecutive worldwide chart topper. Anyone pre-ordering the album from iTunes ahead of its release will receive instant downloads of both “Adventure Of A Lifetime” and another new song, “Everglow,” which Zane Lowe premiered on Beats One yesterday.
Tickets for Coldplay’s 2016 European stadium dates go on sale to the public today via Ticketmaster. The band’s Latin American shows then go on sale next week. See Coldplay.com for details.
