With Coldplay preparing to descend upon the the U.S as part of their A Head Full of Dreams world tour, they continue to release singles and videos from their latest album of the same name.
Enter "Up and Up."
I don't know how to explain the extent of the video's eye candy, but safe to say the production is as whimsical as it is beautiful.
Visual theatrics aside, the song strikes a chord....with gorgeous layered vocals featuring Beyoncé and legendary singer Merry Clayton (the huge voice in the Rolling Stones' classic "Gimme Shelter"), throw in a guitar solo by Noel Gallagher and you have a sort of musical epic. In fact might I be so bold as to say the layered vocals and instrument crescendo are reminiscent of their fan favorite "Fix You".
Created by the young Israeli directors Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, leave it to Coldplay to find a team to make an artistic video that sends a positive message about which Chris Martin said (in a radio interview before it was released)
'[It is] one of the best videos people have made. Even if you take the music away'.
I might just have to agree...
Enjoy their moving video.
