Coldplay Share Original Video For “Yellow”

In honor of the 20th anniversary of their debut album Parachutes, Coldplay has released the rarely-seen alternate music video for their first hit, “Yellow”. Just like the original, it features a young Chris Martin walking along the beach – except it’s daytime, and Martin isn’t wearing a rain slicker. The version has been “hidden in the vaults since 2000”, according to the band.

Turns out this daylight version was “Take 1” filmed before the crew was sent home for the day. Later, Martin and the cameraman would film the rain-soaked nighttime version we remember.
