After sharing the video for new jam "Midnight" last week, Coldplay have announced a new album and shared "Magic," the first official single. Ghost Stories will be the name of that new LP, and it's due out on May 19th. Listen and check out the lyrics above.
With an electronic beat and groovy bassline initially providing the only backing for Chris Martin's voice, the song gradually builds, climaxing around the 3:30 mark. Things then mellow out for a beautiful coda that features some nifty looping by Jon Hopkins, the phenomenal electronic musician who produced Ghost Stories.
