Coldplay had revealed to fans some good news last month which was soon followed by the sad news that frontman Chris Martin and his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow would be separating, citing “conscious uncoupling.” We still have no idea what that means, but we wish them all the best in the relationship department.
But even with the sad news, Martin needed to keep marching on which found him playing guest mentor on The Voice last week and now, a new music video for their upcoming new album’s lead single, “Magic.”
In the video, Martin plays the role of two magicians; a young and chivalrous one and an older, drunk, and abusive one. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Ziyi Zhang plays the role older magician’s assistant who is repeatedly abused and talked down to. Of course, the younger Martin, came to the rescue and saved her from the mean old man.
Watch the full music video here.
Coldplay’s upcoming new album, Ghost Stories is set to be released on May 16 through Atlantic Records.
