Band also releases second single from Ghost Stories.

COLDPLAY announced on March 3 that its new album, Ghost Stories, will hit stores on May 19, and along with it the band released its second new song in less than one week.

Latest single Magic continues the trend of 2011 album Mylo Xyloto, eschewing the pounding stadium beats of X&Y“ (2005) and Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008) that made Coldplay global rock stars.

The release of Magic comes less than a week after the band posted a surprise music video for Midnight on Feb 25.

The two songs are the first new music audiences have heard from Coldplay since Atlas, which the band composed for the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. The band is set to perform at the iTunes Festival at SXSW in Austin, Texas, on March 11.

Ghost Stories is currently available for pre-order on iTunes with an instant download of Magic. – Reuters
