Big news Coldplay fans! Today Coldplay have announced that their brand new album, Ghost Stories, is now available to stream for free via iTunes for a limited time only. As a long time Coldplay fan, and as someone who has enjoyed every record they’ve released, I can barely contain my excitement as the beginning notes of this musical odyssey blares over my headphones. Fans interested in listening to their gorgeous new record can head over to iTunes.com/Coldplay or iTunesRadio.com/Coldplay to listen to the album in full, a week before its worldwide release on May 19th.
While you’re there, be sure to check out the absolutely gorgeous full-length animation of Mila Fürstová’s Ghost Stories artwork, which was directed by Alasdair + Jock at Trunk Animation.
And if you’re the kind of person who prefers a physical release over a digital release (don’t worry, I’m that way too!) a Deluxe CD version of Ghost Stories – featuring three bonus tracks -will be available exclusively from Target, in store and at target.com/coldplay.
To celebrate the release of the new record, the band will be doing a primetime TV special, titled Coldplay : Ghost Stories. For more details click here. An extended trailer for the Coldplay : Ghost Stories TV special can be seen below:
Ghost Stories is Coldplay’s sixth album. Fans who pre-order the album from iTunes.com/Coldplay now will immediately get the singles Magic and A Sky Full Of Stars, as well as the album track Midnight. The band’s current single, A Sky Full Of Stars, has topped the iTunes Chart in 88 countries since its 1 May release.
