After a two year wait, Coldplay has finally announced their sixth studio album – Ghost Stories.
Ghost Stories is going to be released on 19th May. Coldplay has also release the first single of Ghost Stories – Magic.
Magic, unlike Midnight, is Coldplay through and through. It’s calm, relaxing and quite great to hear Chris Martin’s voice undistorted.
They have also released the tracklist -
- Always in my head
- True Love
- Another’s Arms
- A Sky Full of Stars
The album is out on 19 May.
You can pre-order Ghost Stories now from iTunes at http://smarturl.it/ghoststories or on CD at http://smarturl.it/ghoststoriescd
A very surprising and totally unexpected news to come out today morning was Coldpay’s new song Midnight which was released at Midnight, Mongolia time.
There is absolutely zero context behind the video, no announcement of new album or anything.
And the song is also surprising, quite different from any other song Coldplay has done before. It’s chilly, atmospheric and I was getting serious Bon Iver vibes when listening to it.
I usually am a big fan of Coldplay video but I am a bit reserved about this one. It seems something out of a bad trip.
I hope Coldplay’s sixth studio album will be different. What do you think about the song?
Finally, Enrique has announced today morning the date of his new album release. It’s 18th March 2014 and the name of the album is SEX + LOVE
The name of the album along with the videos of the singles points towards a hot and steamy new album.
He named his 8th studio album Insomniac because all the recording session was done at night and he was insomniac during that period. His 9th studio album was named Euphoria because Enrique was in a state of euphoria during the period album was recorded. What does that tell you about this new album?
The cover of the album is going to be released tomorrow. Check back for update.
Update : 30 January 2014
