Coldplay have shared the official music video to track ‘Trouble In Town’, lifted from their acclaimed No.1 album ‘Everyday Life’.
Directed by Aoife McCardle, the visuals were inspired by George Orwell’s Animal Farm with the video is set in a dystopian world populated by animals, including politician pigs, street-hustling foxes and an officious snow leopard cop.

All proceeds from the song and the video will go to The Innocence Project, which works to overturn wrongful convictions in the US, and ACFS, a charity for vulnerable children in South Africa, some of whom provided vocals for the original track.
The band also recently dropped the official music video for ‘Champion Of The World’. Filmed in Los Angeles by French director Cloé Bailly, it features frontman Chris Martin portraying a young boy who after experiencing a tough time at home and at school, finds comfort in his imagination and music.
Cloé commented, “The video is about this magic power that kids have to switch off from reality and jump into their own world.”
