Coldplay Tight-Lipped About New Video
May 23, 2005

As Coldplay's video for their new single, "Speed Of Sound," nears its premiere on MTV this week, few details have leaked out about the clip. The video was shot in Los Angeles, and bassist Guy Berryman told MTV News that "We shot it with [director] Mark Romanek. It's basically a big, curved LED wall. I think that's what it's called. I'm not too clued in on the technology. This is our first video back, so it was really a visual announcement for us. It was important to do a band performance, just to say 'We're back.'"

Despite those vague details, not much else is known... except that the video does not contain any hot chicks. "I think the only way for us to get a video that does really well is for us to get Beyoncé in it. I'm not sure how we're going to do that, though," quipped Chris Martin. "We're at such a disadvantage because we don't have gorgeous girls in our band, so it's much harder for us to make videos. We should make videos like that band that always has loads of gorgeous girls in their videos — Maroon 5. I think we should give them a call."

Coldplay's new album, X&Y, is due on June 7, but keep an ear out for the one-hour radio special Coldplay: The World Premiere of X&Y, from FMQB Productions and Capitol Records. It will air on various stations across the country from June 2 to 7.
