Every album begins with the germ of an idea, every song tells a story, and now it is finally revealed that there is a secret other worldly narrative behind Coldplay’s newest hit album and its enigmatic title “Mylo Xyloto.” Three years ago, Coldplay and front man Chris Martin teamed up with Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, and the upcoming The Little Prince) to create Mylo's epic story that has gone on to inspire chart-toppers like “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,” “Paradise,” “Princess of China” and “Hurts Like Heaven” -- which has its own MYLO XYLOTO COMIC-themed music video providing insight into the backstory of this new universe, and a glimpse of Mylo himself. Prepare to experience the world of Coldplay in a whole new way with this brand-new six-issue miniseries!

Here’s some big news for both Bongo Comics and Coldplay fans. In anticipation of the release of the six-issue Mylo Xyloto miniseries (which previewed at the San Diego Comic-Con International this past July), Coldplay has unveiled the animated video for “Hurts Like Heaven,” the fifth and final video single to be taken from the band’s hit album Mylo Xyloto.

 

The video, directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, and the upcoming The Little Prince), charts a graffiti gang's colorful, but doomed rebellion against Major Minus and his oppressive regime. The animated video serves as a prequel to the six-issue Mylo Xyloto monthly comic series to be released by Bongo Comics beginning February 2013.

 

An exclusive making-of film for the video is available to Android users via the Xperia Lounge app (http://cldp.ly/xperialng). The app also features two full tracks from Coldplay’s eagerly-awaited concert film / live album, Live 2012, which will be released on 19 November on CD/DVD, Blu-ray & digitally.

 

Watch the video now at www.coldplay.com and while you are on the site, preorder the entire Mylo Xyloto series.
