Coldplay keeps amazing everyone with their announcement of their sixth studio album Ghost Stories, which will be released on May 19, 2014. Coldplay has already gave us a look of Midnight on the new album last week that had a taste of electronic to it. On Monday, however, Coldplay released the single to the Ghost Stories album, Magic.

With that said, Magic has a very different feel then that of Coldplay’s last album Mylo Xyloto’s single, Paradise. Magic gives a completely opposite vibe of a heart getting broken into pieces, but the good times were magic. This song also has a relaxing and smooth beat and tone to it. With that being said, Yellow has been Coldplay’s most famous romantic song, but after listening to Magic, I think you will agree with me that Yellow has met its match.

All in all I give Coldplay five stars on Magic and I cannot wait until May 19 to listen to the rest of Coldplay’s new album Ghost Stories.
