Coldplay return with their new album, Ghost Stories, on May 19th. Taking a page from Arcade Fire, the band will preview the release with an hour-long primetime special on NBC. Simply titled “Coldplay: Ghost Stories”, the program will focus on the band’s sixth LP, integrating intimate, live-performance footage shot in front of an 800-person audience in Los Angeles in March. A press release adds, “Atmospheric projection will deliver awe-inspiring 360-degree imagery around, above and below the band — while being woven into the overall filmed narrative.”

The special promises a setlist of new songs, like Ghost Stories’ lead single “Magic”, as well as catalog classics such as “Paradise” and “Clocks”. For a taste of what to expect, watch a trailer below.

“Coldplay: Ghost Stories” airs on Sunday, May 18th at 7pm ET on NBC.
