Good afternoon, here is the brand new video for Hurts Like Heaven. It was directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, and the upcoming The Little Prince) and charts a graffiti gang’s colourful but doomed rebellion against Major Minus and his oppressive regime. If you’re in Germany, you can watch the video here.
It is the prequel to the story of Mylo Xyloto which will be told via the six-part Mylo Xyloto comic series to be released monthly by Matt Groening’s celebrated Bongo Comics from February 2013. The comic series is available to pre-order from today in the Coldplay Shop. Ten people who order the series (or the lithograph/series bundle) before November 30 will be randomly selected to receive a signed copy of the Issue One Comic-Con Variant Cover, signed by the band and its co-creator Mark Osborne.
The illustrations for the video were done by Alejandro Fuentes with color by Steve Hamaker. Pascal Charrue and Arnaud Delord and all the gang at Fortiche did the graphics and Alexander Juhasz did the original storyboards.
