Fans who pre-order the band's sixth studio album 'Ghost Stories', which is coming out on May 19, will be able to download first single 'Magic' for free.

Just a week after dropping new track "Midnight" and its accompanying music video, announces that their new album is coming out soon. The new record will be called "Ghost Stories" and is set to arrive on May 19 via Parlophone/Atlantic Records.

The album will feature nine tracks including "Midnight" and "Magic". The latter song will likely serve as the first proper single off "Ghost Stories". It is available for free download for fans who pre-order the forthcoming album.

Unlike -esque "Midnight", "Magic" sounds more like Coldplay's previous works although there's an electronic beat and an R&B-influenced melody. The British band has reportedly worked with magician Joe Labero, actor Peter Fonda and Swedish director Jonas Akerlund for the music video of this new song.

"Ghost Stories" marks Coldplay's sixth studio effort. It comes as the follow-up to their 2011 Grammy award-nominated album "".

and his bandmates will support their new album with a headline slot at this year's iTunes Festival in Austin, Texas, on March 11.
