Coldplay have announced a special vinyl reissue of their Parachutes album.

The debut record - which was released on 10 July 2000 - celebrated its 20th anniversary last week, and to mark the milestone Chris Martin and co have confirmed their plans to re-release it in vinyl form.

The reissue of the seminal LP - which spawned the singles Trouble, Yellow, Shiver and Don't Panic - will be pressed on transparent yellow vinyl and is set for release on 20 November 2020.

Coldplay have also been marking two decades since the release of their debut by sharing throwback videos and images from the vaults.

Once such clip is an alternate version of their Yellow video, which features extras and sees the band's frontman walk down the beach in a red jumper... looking considerably less drenched than in the visuals we've come to know and love.

The band - who also consist of Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Jonny Buckland - captioned the post: "Take 1 of the Yellow video (hidden in the vaults since 2000). There were loads of extras in this version, but it rained all day so we sent them home at 4pm. Chris grabbed the cameraman and said ‘let’s just walk down the beach’. Worked out well in the end! PH".
