Coldplay’s new album, Ghost Stories, isn’t out until next month, but the band has already given fans a decent taste of what’s to come with tracks like “Magic”, the Bon Iver-sounding “Midnight”, “Another’s Arms” and “Always in My Head”.
Now we can add another song to the ever-growing list.
Today (April 23), Chris Martin and the guys debuted their latest track, “Oceans”, on BBC Radio 1.
The live rendition of the track has Martin on acoustic, strumming out a sparse ballad about meeting in the rain. The sad and subtle track also has the consciously uncoupled singer showing off his falsetto with lines like, “I’m ready for it all, love/I’m ready for the pain.”
The band kicks off a string of intimate gigs this Friday, making two stops in America: May 5 at New York City’s Beacon Theatre and an L.A. show at Royce Hall on May 19, the day of the album’s release.
