Coldplay Announces Release Date for ‘Ghost Stories,’ & Listen New Single ‘Magic’

Magic by Coldplay

Coldplay has quietly unveiled “Magic,” the first single from their anticipated new album “Ghost Stories.”

The album, the British band’s sixth, will arrive May 19 via Parlophone/Atlantic Records. Fans who pre-order “Ghost Stories” will receive an instant download of the new single, which can be streamed at youtube.com/coldplay.

News of Coldplay’s new album release comes a week after the outfit dropped the atmospheric track “Midnight” — and its trippy clip.

“Magic,” like “Midnight,” is a more introspective production which veers well away from the radio-geared, stadium-rock works which helped make Coldplay a household name.

“Ghost Stories” is the Chris Martin-fronted group’s first album since 2011’s “Mylo Xyloto.” In August of last year, the band released “Atlas” from the soundtrack of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”

A deluxe edition of the “Ghost Stories” CD, featuring three bonus tracks, is available exclusively from Target at target.com/coldplay.

Coldplay will support the album with a headline slot on the opening night of the inaugural US iTunes Festival at SXSW on March 11. The performance will be streamed live and on-demand worldwide for free via the iTunes Store. [via BillBoard]
