Coldplay’s new album ‘Ghost Stories’ dropping in May

- March 3rd, 2014

Things are starting to heat up in the Coldplay camp, and it could get pretty scary in a few months.

Just days after dropping a new song Beyonce style (out of the blue, that is), the Chris Martin-fronted band have just unveiled the title, a new single, and tracklist for their upcoming sixth studio effort.

The album, titled Ghost Stories, features nine tracks (one short of being in EP territory), and is set for release on May 19. The new single, Magic, is available right now as a free download when you pre-order the disc from iTunes.

Or, better yet, just listen to it below:

Coldplay fans may be breathing a sigh of relief with the tune — it’s a lot more upbeat and colourful than what we heard last week. The dark, mysterious first listen, Midnight, has been met with some rather unfavourable reviews so far. Slate wrote that it “sounds like a bad parody of Bon Iver,” with Martin coming across as “rarely intelligible as he sings into his vocoder.” Rolling Stone took a jab as well, calling some of the lyrics “incoherent.”
