By Amanda Wicks for

Coldplay released a new music video for their song “Birds” off the band’s final album A Head Full of Dreams today.

Directed by Marcus Hainey, the video is a dreamscape of sorts that takes the band on a trip through California’s Colorado Desert before they finally end at Salvation Mountain (vis CoS). With a nostalgic lens shadowing the entire project, the video showcases blues, pinks and yellows for a colorful, almost ethereal visualization of “Birds.” It’s less narrative-driven, and more about evoking how the song feels.
