As Beyonce, Kid Cudi, and now Coldplay have shown, telling people that you’re going to release a new single beforehand is for the birds. Listen to Coldplay’s brand new jam — ‘Magic’ — below!

Coldplay is officially back! Less than a week after the sudden release of their new song “Midnight,” the British band struck again by quietly releasing “Magic” — the official first single from their new album Ghost Stories — with little fanfare.

Coldplay’s New ‘Magic’ Single — Revealed With ‘Ghost Stories’ Release Date

Coldplay definitely seems to be revamping their sound a bit for their sixth studio album.

“Magic” is romantic, atmospheric, and a bit bass-heavy for Coldplay, while “Midnight” is a huge departure from the stadium songs that made them an international hit. Still, we’re thinking fans are going to eat “Magic” up — click below to listen and let us know your thoughts in the comments!


Coldplay Reveals ‘Ghost Stories’ Release Date

Of course, “Magic” wasn’t the only bomb dropped by Coldplay last night.

The band also revealed that Ghost Stories would arrive on May 19, and that fans who preordered the album would receive an instant download of “Magic.” Ghost Stories will be the band’s sixth studio album, and their first since 2011’s Mylo Xyloto. A deluxe edition of Ghost Stories, featuring three bonus tracks, will be available exclusively from Target.

Track-Listing for Ghost Stories:

1. “Always In My Head”
2. “Magic”
3. “Ink”
4. “True Love”
5. “Midnight”
6. “Another’s Arms”
7. “Oceans”
8. “A Sky Full Of Stars”
9. “O”

What do you think of “Magic,” HollywoodLifers? Does it make you want to pick up Ghost Stories on May 19? Are you into this new trend of releasing singles unannounced over the Internet? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
