Coldplay, Beyonce Team Up For Bollywood-Inspired 'Hymn For The Weekend' Video [WATCH]
With the Super Bowl quickly approaching, half-time headliners Coldplay kick anticipation into high gear with a new music video for "Hymn For The Weekend." Featuring Beyonce, who will also be taking the Super Bowl stage next week, the colorful clip filmed on location in Mumbai takes you on a trip like only Chris Martin and co. can.
Directed by Ben Mor, it's the latest single to be lifted off their acclaimed album A Head Full Of Dreams.
The video kicks off deep in the jungle, with slow motion shots of Indian elders walking and playing instruments. A billboard of a Bollywood-inspired Beyonce can be seen in the city before taking us into Chris Martin's cab. The song and adventure kick off shortly after, with Martin exploring the colorful city running through Holi festival while Bey checks in from various screens and TV sets. The uplifting affair ends with fireworks over the water. The video also features a cameo from Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor.
In addition to the new video, the guys also announcing plans for their first U.S Tour in support of the album. The Head Full Of Dreams Tour is being produced by Live Nation with Citi Cardmembers getting access to presales Jan. 29 at 10 a.m. All general admission tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 5, two days before they perform at the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show which airs on CBS Feb. 7.
