Coldplay’s new song Higher Power has been out for a few weeks now. Today they released this crazy new video for it.
They teamed up with superstar music video director Dave Meyers, who has worked with artists like Taylor Swift, Travis Scott and Billie Eilish in the past. The plot of the Higher Power video sees the band exploring a colorful trash planet named Kaotica, whose alien language (Kaotican) features in the video and across the Higher Power artwork.
This fake planet of Kaotica is populated by robot dogs, giant holograms and a street-gang of dancing aliens. Somewhere James Cameron is very proud and into this.
Meyers said “The video is a metaphor for how, right now, we all feel alienated, far removed from our world, almost like we’re on an alien planet. And ultimately we find love in the streets and that euphoria shoots us off into the stratosphere of our own energy and higher power.”
Maybe Coldplay’s next tour will actually be IN space!
