Watch: Coldplay’s video for “Magic”

on April 07, 2014, 10:20am

Coldplay have unveiled the video for “Magic”, the lead single off their upcoming album, Ghost Stories. Director Jonas Åkerlund takes a very literal approach, crafting a silent film based around an old-timey magic show. Coldplay’s own Chris Martin pulls double duty here, playing both a charming magician and his assistant’s brutish husband. Ziyi Zhang, of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame, also stars in the video. Watch below.

Ghost Stories, the follow-up to 2011′s Mylo Xyloto, arrives officially May 19th through Parlophone Records. For more, check out teaser track “Midnight”. Pre-orders are now ongoing.
