Coldplay’s “Magic”: Stream The Full ‘Ghost Stories’ Song

ac94c36b6a014cdf25e0fb75c6ccfeda Coldplay’s “Magic”: Stream The Full ‘Ghost Stories’ Song

Coldplay announced their sixth LP Ghost Stories and previewed new track “Magic” last night after the Academy Awards (perhaps some form of protest for their Hunger Games: Catching Fire song “Atlas” not getting nominated?), and now the song is streaming in full. It begins as an intimate number built on a simple drum machine beat and plaintive piano chords, with some electronics twinkling in the background. Eventually, though, it swells into an acoustic singalong with the requisite Edge-indebted guitar lines and Chris Martin‘s falsetto chant.

When combined with previously released “Midnight,” it certainly seems the Brits are toning down their trademark grandeur in exchange for a more minimalist, atmospheric set of songs. Hear “Magic” below.

Ghost Stories is out May 19.
