Coldplay continue to build anticipation for their highly anticipated studio album A Head Full of Dreams, which will shelves on Dec. 4 via Parlophone/Atlantic. The 7-time Grammy winners’ latest offering is an official music video the album’s lead single “Adventure of a Lifetime.”
Rolling Stone reports on Nov. 27, that the veteran British pop-rockers debuted the clip on Friday via their official Facebook page. Directed by Mat Whitecross (“Spike Island,” “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”), the 5:15 minute video draws much of its inspiration from the intro scene of Stanley Kurbrick’s epic 1968 science fiction film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
In place of the bandmembers themselves, Coldplay substitutes CGI chimpanzees, who come under the thrall of a mysterious a Beats Pill portable speaker, which pumps out the retro 70s disco-flavored rhythm of “Adventure of a Lifetime.” The chimps then go ape upon discovering musical instruments in the jungle and a swinging time is had by all.
