Coldplay released their single ‘Princess Of China’ a couple of months back, but that hasn’t stopped the band and Rihanna teaming up for a new video clip now.

Chris Martin and Rihanna were spotted at LA’s Taiko Centre in March shooting the clip, and the finished result popped up on Coldplay’s Vevo on the weekend.

We’re not the first to note that the setting is not exclusively Chinese, despite the title of the song. It’s more of a cultural mash-up of ancient Chinese, Japanese and even Indian styles. But it’s pretty slick.

Have a look below.
