Watch: Coldplay debuts new song “Oceans”

on April 23, 2014, 10:53am

We’re still a solid month away from the release of Coldplay’s new album, Ghost Stories, but already we’ve heard several tracks. Following “Magic” and “Midnight”, along with live performances of “Always In My Head” and “Another’s Arms” comes “Ocean”, which was debuted today during an in-studio session for BBC Radio 1. Check out the slow-moving, acoustic ballad below. I imagine it’ll make for a good Starbucks soundtrack, though I only really drink diet Coke.

Ghost Stories, the follow-up to 2011’s Mylo Xyloto, arrives officially May 19th through Parlophone Records. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

In related news, Coldplay will serve as musical guest for the May 3rd episode of Saturday Night Live, appearing alongside host Andrew Garfield (of Spider-Man fame).
