MAT WHITECROSS-DIRECTED CLIP STARS PUPPET ALIEN
THE WEIRDOS, WHOSE SINGER FEATURES ON THE TRACK
+ FREE AUDIO STREAM OF JULY 17 PARIS SHOW ANNOUNCED
Coldplay have today premiered the video for Biutyful, the sparkling cut from their latest album Music Of The Spheres.
The video features a diverse cast of puppets by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. It follows the fortunes of an alien band called The Weirdos, as they progress from non-human outlaws to the most popular band on the planet (masterminded by manager Bruce Cakemix).
The Weirdos’ lead singer Angel Moon has been a regular performer on Coldplay’s current world tour, singing Biutyful to more than a million people across Europe, the US and Latin America over the past four months.
The video is directed by Mat Whitecross – who previously helmed a number of classic Coldplay videos including Paradise, A Sky Full Of Stars and Adventure Of A Lifetime.
