2015-11-30 16:00

Los Angeles - Coldplay have unveiled an animated video for their new single Adventure Of A Lifetime that features chimpanzee doppelgangers.

Frontman Chris Martin came up with the visuals for the video - directed by Mat Whitecross - with actor and motion capture expert Andy Serkis, who has previously played a chimp himself, starring as Caesar in Rise of the Apes.

The creative pair met on a flight one day and aligned their busy schedules to work on their ideas.

They ended up producing a cut within six months with the help of animators Mathematic and motion capture experts Imaginarium, who transformed the four musicians - Chris, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion - into 3D apes.

Meanwhile, the Paradise hitmakers have unveiled another track from their upcoming LP A Head Full of Dreams titled Everglow, which features Chris' ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow's vocals.
