Coldplay Releases Music Video For 'Hurts Like Heaven'

Coldplay has released the music video for "Hurts Like Heaven," from their most recent album Mylo Xyloto. The vid, directed by Mark Osborne with illustrations by Alejandro Fuentes, is a nod to the band's Mylo comic book series released earlier in the year.

The video features a group of superheroes on the run from police in a dystopian future. The group is caught but a young boy appears to have absorbed their powers, leaving the world with a little hope.

Six issues of the comic book series, written by Osborne, were released in February. According to him, the character of Mylo Xyloto was a "young Silencer on the front lines of a war against sound and color in the world of Silencia. Mylo discovers that the enemy he's been trained to hate his whole life might not be the enemy after all."
