A Head Full of Dreams Music Video

Recommended Posts

UPDATE: Coldplay have released a music video for their new single A Head Full of Dreams

 

 

 

Between concerts, the members of Coldplay were in Mexico filming the music video for what we now believe to be A Head Full of Dreams! (previously thought to be footage for the video for Up&Up)

 

It looks like the director might be Marcus Haney, the same person who directed the video for Birds.

 

During the second concert in Mexico City, Coldplay performed A Head Full of Dreams twice, and some of the footage of the second performance will hopefully be used for this music video.

 

 

They're on bikes...thats so cool!

If it is true I'll be so immensely happy. I think Markus recorded part of the concert to include it in the video. So, I'll be kind part of it :)

part of the concert is will be the ending the music video. If you listen the song you can hear "live sounds" in the end. ;)

These men are approaching 40 yet they're filming a music video on bmx bikes?! That's not dignified for people above the age of 16 nevermind those in middle age.

 

I really hope the band get over this awkward mid life crisis sooner rather than later. Of course I haven't seen the video yet but can already predict the premise from these clips, they cycle around while fans point their camera phones at them... The ASFOS video on wheels.

 

Everything is so comfortable with them nowadays. The HFTW video is exactly the same premise as POC, They seem to paint by numbers everything except what made them so brilliant in the first place... Can we please go back to making innovative and creative videos like they hade during the first 4 eras?

I've never seen a band doing something like this LOL. I'm hoping it will be good :)

To be honest, it's not like early Coldplay videos were really creative... In My Place is just them performing in a white room, yellow is literally Chris singing on a beach, and Clocks is again them performing but with fancy lighting. The Scientist has a pretty nice video, but if we're talking innovation, AOAL is beats them all. I am pretty certain they were the first to make completely CGI motion capture music videos. The videos for Magic and Paradise both have stories, albeit clichéd, and I think stories count for some creativity points.

Ofcourse, these things were only possible because they had become so successful, which is why they wouldn't have been able to do them back then. (And they wouldn't because it doesn't fit the theme of the albums)

I would understand criticisms that their videos have become too ridiculous and poppy, but I think the creativity and innovation argument falls flat.

Hardly, The Parachutes era videos were very creative. The Scientist is probably the best music video of all time. The Talk and The Hardest Part videos are extremely unique and I think the Viva era videos speak for themselves.

 

I disagree about the Yellow video by the way, the original video had 50+ extras. Youthful Chris had the common sense to show restraintand go for something more subtle but more meaningful also. The Yellow video is considered a classic by MTV standards (when music videos had a bigger influence then they have now) It's very memorable as it slowly goes from darkness to daylight.

 

Even the IMP video and Clocks have creative elements that similar videos by other bands don't (Two people in the distance, Stoic crowd, interesting lighting and cinematography) You can cherry pick those videos all you like but the fact is every single band in history has videos like this because at the end of the day it's about the music and the musicians musical ability not about all the pretty colours and array of different popstars in the video. The pop extravagence lacks class.

The Yellow video having 50+ extras has honestly nothing to do with my point. It's about the result and at the end of the day, it is him walking on a beach. We're talking innovation and creativity here, and it being memorable because the sunlight changes throughout it isn't either of those.

I don't think we're on the same page here, I'm just talking about creativity and innovation while you seem to be talking about the overall quality. I agree that music should be put above the video, and I think that the videos for IMP and Clocks fit the nature of their repsective songs, but again, that's steering away from the point.

I like most of their videos (except for The Hardest Part, I mean wtf is that), and I'm not taking anything away from their earlier videos, I think their great. And I do think some of their newer videos are just too much(HFTW *cough cough* But when JUST talking creativity and innovation, the bewer videos come up on top.

I completely disagree. The Hardest Part video is very innovative from a technical standpoint, doctering 1980's video footage into a 2006 video and have it seamlessly flow together. The Scientist is very creative, that speaks for itself. The concept of their earlier videos have a lot more creativity than their newer ones. Look at the video for Don't Panic then compare with POC/HFTW. One seems to be an esoteric portrayal of an artists interpretation of an esoteric song and the other incorporates cultural approbation and popstars in an attempt by some corporate head to drum up interest in his product.

 

While I agree not all the newer videos are terrible (I like all the GS videos minus ASFOS) your going to dig yourself a hole by trying to claim the AOAL video (brought to you by the Beats Pil) is more "innovative" than The Scientist video, because seemingly more money was thrown at it. The concept isn't at all new, the band dressing up as wild animals (I wonder where have we seen that before?)

The Hardest Part videos...extremely unique

 

The Hardest Part video (which had old folks in it) = good

The band riding BMX bikes (which you seem to be saying only teenagers should do) = bad

 

OLDplaying indeed.

 

Anywho, I dont think anyone really has/had issue with the The Scientist MV or Yellow. I think we're just arguing for the sake of arguing now. But really, Coldplay haven't ever really been a strong MV producing band, so I don't even care at this point.

Rick just said he wasn't trying to take away from the earlier videos man...I dont think anyone hates those videos.

Where have we seen completely motion-captured videos before? It's not more innovative because "more money was thrown at it", it was innovative because it was the first time we had seen such technology in a music video before.

And don't try to undermine the video with the whole beats pill thing that has nothing to do with this argument.

Well, I seem to recall it only having one old folk in it (Or a very dead one if we're being 100% accurate) ;) and a band in their prime, which I have more of an interest in.

 

I think my point about the BMX bikes (With obliglatory pretty colours) will speak for itself once we see the video.

Don't you think it's at least a bit ironic how you seem to pass over an elderly woman doing aerobics yet have a massive issue with a sub 40 year old band riding bikes? And no, I don't think your point will speak for itself once we see the video. I dont have an issue with BMX bikes or BMX bikers. I don't have an issue with pretty colours. I'm just not buying this argument whatsoever. And believe me when I say, I'm one of the biggest naysayers when it comes to Coldplay's MVs.

I don't see the irony there to be honest. It's not like Chris and the boys are doing acrobatics in a bikini. It's very nuanced and has a subtle humour to it, which I think is the whole concept of the video.

 

Let's just wait until we see the video... I'll reserve the full wrath of my judgement 'til then, although I have a sneaking suspicion I'll be proved right.
