After their surprise song "Midnight" dropped, Coldplay has officially announced that their new album, Ghost Stories, will be released on May 19th. When fans pre-order the album on iTunes, they will receive an instant download of the first single, "Magic", which can also be streamed on Coldplay's YouTube channel.
Ghost Stories is Coldplay's first album since 2011's Mylo Xyloto. Billboard describes the first released tracks, "Magic" and "Midnight," having "more introspective production which veers well away from the radio-geared, stadium-rock works", showing off "Coldplay's chillier side and atypical sounds for the group".
We can't wait to see what other surprises they have in store for us next!
