Coldplay Get Comical in New ‘Hurts Like Heaven’ Video

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Coldplay have released their new video for ‘Hurts Like Heaven,’ a stunning animated clip set to the tune of their fifth single from ‘Mylo Xyloto.’

The video was directed by Mark Osborne (‘Kung Fu Panda’) and follows a graffiti gang as they rebel against Major Minus and his regime. The action-packed video incorporates vibrant colors and a 3D quality that sets it apart from the rest.

But this isn’t just your standard music video. It serves as the prequel to the story of Mylo Xyloto, which will be told in Coldplay’s highly anticipated six-part ‘Mylo Xyloto’ comic book series. The issues will be released on Matt Groening’s Bongo Comics on a monthly basis, beginning in February. Fans can pre-order the comic series now on the band’s official website.

According to Capitol Records, ‘Hurts Like Heaven’ will be the final single from the band’s fifth studio album, following hits like ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall’ and ‘Paradise.’

But, with over six million copies sold worldwide, Coldplay isn’t stopping there. The band is set to unveil a brand new concert film/live album called ‘Live 2012.’ The CD/DVD will be available on Nov. 20, and the film will premiere on EPIX and its digital branches on Nov. 17.
