Coldplay has released a video for their new single ‘Birds‘ and it’s a cool one, filmed as it is in a 1960s-inspired extravaganza of psychedelic tripping, complete with kaleidoscope shots and grainy out of focus layering.
‘Birds‘ was filmed at Salvation Mountain, an amazing folk art site created by just one man, artist Leonard Knight, and located near Slab City in Southern California; a place surrounded by harsh desert environs. The video was directed by James Marcus Haney.
‘Birds’, of course, is from Coldplay’s seventh and newest album A Head Full of Dreams. You can pick it up on all major digital music platforms now.
It is not, however, the first video for a single from this album as the band previously released ‘Adventure of a Lifetime‘, one of my favorite tracks of 2015.
