Coldplay have revealed two good pieces of news to get their fans through their nasty Monday morning blues.
First, the band revealed a brand new single titled, “Magic.” Then they followed up the new single, by announcing that “Magic” will in fact be featured on their upcoming, sixth album, Ghost Stories.
Last week when they released “Midnight,” some people thought it was just another random new track that the band was dropping. Fans of the band, on the other hand, were hoping that it was just a sign that a new album was on its way. Those wishing for a new record, got what they wanted because Ghost Stories will be released on May 19 through the band’s longtime record label, Parlophone/Atlantic Records.
For those wanting to pre-order the album, they could do so now and get an instant download of the new single while a deluxe version of the album will be sold through Target which will feature three bonus tracks. The audio video for “Magic” can be heard below as well as the full track list for the upcoming record.
Ghost Stories will be the band’s first new album since 2011’s hit, Mylo Xyloto. Last year, the band released a single song, “Atlas” which was featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack, earning them a few nominations for the track.
As for the band, Coldplay are set to headline the inaugural U.S. iTunes Festival on March 11 during South By Southwest in Austin. For those not able to make it to Austin, the show will be streamed live through the iTunes Store.
