Watch: Frontman Chris Martin plays a schoolboy in Coldplay’s new video for ‘Champion of the World’

A new clip for the Scott Hutchison-inspired track

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin goes back to school in the new video for “Champion of the World.

The new Cloé Bailly-directed clip, which was filmed in Los Angeles, sees Martin playing the role of a young boy who gets bullied at school, criticized by his parents, and left out by everyone around him. As the video progresses, Martin finds hope through music and his imagination, despite all of the challenges he is forced to face.

“Champion of the World” features a co-writing credit from late Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison, as his solo track “Los Angeles, Be Kind” was a huge inspiration for the tune.
