Watch: Coldplay - “Hurts Like Heaven” Video
Color-Splashed Comic Panels
Coldplay have debuted an animated video for "Hurts Like Heaven," the final single from the band's latest album Mylo Xyloto. As the band revealed earlier this year at Comic-Con the name Mylo Xyloto was actually taken from a forthcoming comic book idea the band developed that will be released next year as a six-part mini-series. With director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) helping in the visuals department, "Hurts Like Heaven" sets the stage for the upcoming story, introducing the title character, a former Silencer who rebels against the regime of Major Minus to instill sound and color into his homeworld.
