Coldplay and director Shynola of Black Dog Films UK team up again for the international sensation's latest hit, "Paradise." The video follows a young girl as she emerges from prison and revisits her old life. The film is a continuation of Shynola's roster of work (Coldplay's "Strawberry Swing," Radiohead, Beck), and marks a gritty, visceral foray into live action from his tradition of excellence in animation.
