Tune in and turn up

British band Coldplay have teamed up with director Jonas Åkerlund for the official video of their new single “Magic.” The Swedish director is known for his extended, narrative-heavy music videos which often feel more like short films.

Chris Martin plays both her abusive husband and the besotted assistant in the tangled love triangle, while the song provides the soundtrack.
