Coldplay Releases Magical First Single from Upcoming ‘Ghost Stories’ Album

Do you believe in magic? What some might call “Magic,” others may refer to as the first single off the new Coldplay album, Ghost Stories, set to release on May 19. This new video directed by Jonas Åkerlund is a beautiful short film shot in black and white. The magical clip sort of reminds me of the movie The Prestige, offering everything you would expect from a good flick including flying magicians, damsels in distress, a daring rescue and of course true love.

The video is a follow-up to the awesome “Midnight” video Coldplay dropped a few months ago that could all add up to a pretty cool new album coming soon.
