Coldplay have shared new track and lyric video for “A L I E N S,” the latest song from their forthcoming Kaleidoscope EP.
Directed by Ben Jones, the clip shows four animated characters escaping danger by traveling across the universe. “We were just about to lose our home/ Diamonds ate the radio,” frontman Chris Martin sings, narrating the family’s escape from peril. “Moving in the dead of night.”
Brian Eno co-wrote and co-produced “A L I E N S” with help from Markus Dravs. All proceeds from the new single will benefit Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), which deploys search and rescue missions to help refugees fleeing violent circumstances.
“A L I E N S” arrives via Coldplay’s forthcoming Kaleidoscope EP, which can be downloaded and streamed on July 14th, with a CD and vinyl release to follow on August 4th.
