See Coldplay Bike Around Mexico City in ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ Video

Super-8 footage captures band’s sold-out, stadium-filling Latin American tour from April 2016

Coldplay have unveiled their new video for “A Head Full of Dreams,” the title track off their 2015 LP. The Marcus Haney-directed video was filmed this April in Mexico City during the band’s sold-out Latin American tour.

The video opens with a sample of Charlie Chaplin’s magnanimous speech from The Great Dictator, a scene employed by Coldplay at the start of their recent concerts that has seen a viral resurgence in recent months as a result of Donald Trump’s polarizing rhetoric.

The Chaplin audio gives way to the title track’s uplifting beats as Super-8 footage captures Coldplay riding around the streets of Mexico City on bicycles. Chris Martin and company’s bike trip takes them to the sold-out Foro Sol stadium where the band is set to perform. The camera then follows the band onstage for their jubilant, confetti-filled performance.

“A Head Full of Dreams” is the latest colorful, eye-catching video off Coldplay’s new album, following the band’s clever clips for “Adventure of a Lifetime,” “Up&Up” and the Beyoncé-featuring “Hymn for the Weekend.”
