'Closer's Anton Corbijn to direct Coldplay webcast for Vevo

By
Anton Corbijn is to direct a Coldplay webcast.

The Control director will work with Coldplay at a concert in Madrid on October 26, two days after the band release their fifth album Mylo Xyloto.

The event - which takes place at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas - will be broadcast on Vevo and YouTube as part of the 'American Express Unstaged' series.

Corbijn - who started his career in the 1970s as a stills photographer - has directed music videos for Depeche Mode, Nirvana and U2. He made his major motion picture debut with Ian Curtis biopic Control in 2007 and took the helm of George Clooney's thriller The American last year.

Previous 'American Express Unstaged' collaborations have teamed Spike Lee with John Legend and The Roots and Terry Gilliam with Arcade Fire.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has promised that Mylo Xyloto sounds "dangerously close" to a musical and that 'Princess of China' - which features a guest appearance from Rihanna - is the album's highlight.

Mylo Xyloto is released worldwide on October 24.
