Coldplay ‘Magic’ – The Song of the Week for 3/17/2014

Released March 3, 2014 via Parlophone records, “Magic” is the lead single off of Ghost Stories, the 6th studio album by Coldplay

I applaud Coldplay for doing something different. And why not? The first two songs released off this upcoming Ghost Stories album are amazing. Coldplay first released a song and video called “Midnight” (Youtube link here) and I was expecting it to be the first single off the album. But alas it isn’t; here comes “Magic” exactly a week later and is now being called the official lead single. Even though “Midnight” will grow on you, “Magic” is definitely the stronger song, at least for single release purposes.

I’m curious what you all thing of these two new songs. Like the direction Coldplay is going? Think they are making career suicide? Voice your opinion below in the comments section and tweet me @MusicTrajectory

“Call it magic
Call it true
I call it magic, when I’m with you
And I just got broken
Broken into two
Still I call it magic, when I’m next to you”
