Coldplay’s “All I Can Think About Is You” Is A Beautiful Daydream
After announcing that they would be collaborating with everyone from The Chainsmokers to Big Sean on their forthcoming EP, Kaleidoscope, it would be understandable for fans to be a little concerned about Coldplay charting unfamiliar waters. But the animated lyric video for “All I Can Think About is You” makes it clear that Chris Martin & Co. have no desire to abandon their wistful roots. The song and accompanying visual are classic Coldplay.
The moody mid-tempo track starts out with Chris worrying about the state of things around him, pondering aloud, “Chaos giving orders, everything is upside down.” But halfway through, the song has a signature Coldplay revelatory moment, with the frontman declaring, “Love is the only thing left that’s true.” The lyric video (below), which was directed by I Saw John First, is a beautiful, trippy daydream. It’s strangely like being on an Epcot ride at Walt Disney World, which might just be the musical escape we all need right now.
“All I Can Think About Is You” is the first track on the band’s upcoming five-song Kaleidoscope EP, which will be available to download and stream on July 14, and released on CD and vinyl on August 4.
