Coldplay have announced a new film, A Head Full of Dreams, which throws the doors wide open on their colourful 20 year history, is coming to Amazon Prime Video on Friday, November 16th...
A Head Full of Dreams offers an in-depth and intimate portrait of the band’s spectacular rise from the backrooms of Camden pubs to selling out stadiums across the planet. At the heart of the story is the band’s unshakeable brotherhood which has endured through many highs and lows.
The film is helmed by Mat Whitecross - director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary - who met the four friends at college in London, before they’d even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape.
Whitecross has since directed many of the band’s most iconic videos (including Paradise, A Sky Full Of Stars and Adventure Of A Lifetime) and continued to document the band’s musical and personal evolution.
Using extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, A Head Full of Dreams sees the band reflect upon their two decades together. It was filmed during Coldplay's record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which was certified as the third biggest tour of all time, playing to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
The documentary release will be preceded by a special one-night showing of the film in collaboration with Trafalgar Releasing in more than 2,000 cinemas around the world, on Wednesday, November 14th.
In conjunction with the launch of A Head Full of Dreams on Amazon Prime Video, Coldplay will also premiere three live tracks, available to stream only on Amazon Music beginning Friday, October 26th. The tracks are: Stayin’ Alive (Live at Glastonbury) by Coldplay & Barry Gibb, Us Against The World (Live in Leipzig) and Don't Panic (Live in Paris).
