'Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall'

Coldplay's Chris Martin has said that the graffiti of the early hip-hop movement in New York City in the Eighties was one of the chief inspirations for the songs on his band's forthcoming fifth album. In the video for "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," the first video from the still-untitled record, the band fully embraces that influence with animated tags and drawings that mark the walls and ground around them as they rock out in a bombed-out industrial zone. The vibrant, colorful clip is well-suited to the song, which has a shaky, excited energy and the sort of optimistic, romantic lyrics that have made Coldplay one of the world's most crowd-pleasing rock bands.
