The newest Viva La Vida clip was directed by Shynola, an artist group that’s worked with Beck (“E-Pro”), Blur (“Crazy Beat”), and Radiohead (“Pyramid Song”), among others. Here, they pulled out all the artistic stops. We’ve already seen Coldplay as classroom puppets. This time, Chris Martin takes the lead as a live-animated superhero who’s shaken from his drab apartment to save a damsel in distress, only after battling giant squirrels, water creatures, and other obstacles.
“Strawberry Swing” is out as a digital download 9/14 via Parlophone.
