We're fast approaching the release of Mylo Xyloto
, the new concept album from rock giants Coldplay
. We've already heard a few new songs, including the curious "Princess Of China"
and "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall"
with b-sides "Major Minus" and "Moving To Mars"
. Their single "Paradise" got a video today, and it's not offering much insight into the supposed mythology of Mylo or his princess, but it's great! Watch as an elephant escapes captivity through planes, trains, bicycles, and break-dance busking to travel back to his native habitat, playign music with his fellow elephants in South Africa's Karoo desert. You can guess who that furrie turns out to be a part of...
Check out the video for "Paradise", directed by Mat Whitecross.
is out 10/24 on Capitol Records, and Coldplay do Colbert tomorrow night.
