Coldplay released the artistic music video for “Up&Up,” the third single from A Head Full of Dreams today, shortly before they set off on the European leg of the A Head Full of Dreams Tour. The music video, directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, does not feature scenes of Coldplay riding bicycles through the streets of Mexico, as we initially anticipated. Regardless, the real video does have beautiful and imaginative shots, including ones of  the Golden Gate Bridge in a puddle, a turtle flying through the New York subway, an eagle swimming underwater, and the band as giants walking among clouds and on top of fields.

The visually stunning shots are the perfect setting for the uplifting tone of the song.

With the perspective distortion and transformation of ordinary scenes into something extraordinary, and it’s safe to say we agree with Chris Martin in saying that this is one of Coldplay’s best videos. Watch the video below and discuss with fellow fans here!
