Last night, Coldplay took to the stage to perform at the inaugural iTunes Festival at SXSW. During their set, the band went on to perform two new songs from their upcoming, surprise new album Ghost Stories.
The tracks are titled “Always in My Head” and “Another’s Arms” which both can be heard below.
The British band announced they would be releasing their sixth studio album after releasing two new tracks on the internet. When the first song, “Midnight” was released, not much was thought about it since the band had previously released a singular track the year before for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack.
When they released a second song off the album titled “Magic,” it was confirmed by them that a new record will be released this May. Ghost Stories marks the first new album with new music since 2011’s Mylo Xyloto.
