Coldplay premiered the video for their recent single, “Higher Power,” yesterday (Tuesday, June 8th) on the ViacomCBS Times Square billboard, among other places. The clip sees the band exploring a colorful trash planet named Kaotica, whose alien language (Kaotican) is featured in the video and across the Higher Power artwork.
Director Dave 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.”
Since its release last month, “Higher Power” has already been streamed more than 75 million times and topped sales and airplay charts around the world.
