Coldplay travelled the world for their latest music video “Everyday Life”.
The new video, for the title track on their upcoming album, was directed by Canadian Karena Evans, 23, and was filmed around the globe in locations such as the Ukraine, South Africa and Morocco. Evans is known for his work on Drake’s “Nice for What,” “God’s Plan” and “In My Feelings” videos.
“‘Ubuntu’ is a Xhosa word…It means ‘humanity,’ direct translation,” a voiceover says. “So basically, you’ll always need the next person. You know what I mean? So one hand washes the other, the one hand does need the other to clean. That is Ubuntu. To help others, your brothers, your sisters. Even when they are strangers and you don’t know them, you are supposed to help them.”
Coldplay’s double album Everyday Life is available now.
