Coldplay’s ‘Birds’ Music Video Is a Kaleidoscopic Lark

Was your New Year’s resolution to chill with Coldplay on a mountain for a few minutes? Congratulations! Now you can do whatever you want for the rest of 2016. In the run-up to the release of their new, celebrity cameo–filled album, Coldplay has dropped a music video for “Birds,” their latest single. Shot by Marcus Haney, the video finds the members of the much-debated band enjoying a fun day at Salvation Mountain in California. Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow, sadly, do not appear to have been invited.
