Listen: Coldplay “A Sky Full of Stars”

Coldplay debuts the second single & opening track from Ghost Stories + a worldwide scavenger hunt

The second official single from Coldplay’s forthcoming Ghost Stories arrived today. “A Sky Full of Stars” is a collaboration with Avicii and is full on EDM. If you never thought you’d be dancing to Coldplay in the club, you may be wrong. Check out the latest single below.

Coldplay debuted “Always in My Head” at SXSW this year but if you weren’t able to catch that (or the footage before it was taken down), Chris Martin shared the recording with Zane Lowe on BBC1 last night (April 28). The ambient lead track from the upcoming album Ghost Stories explores a theme of “togetherness through life’s challenges” and even features Martin’s daughter Apple’s vocals.

Listen to the radio clip at Ultimate Music.

The band is also launching a worldwide scavenger hunt for Ghost Stories lyrics. Chris Martin-hand written lyrics will be hidden inside envelopes within ghost stories in libraries in 9 different countries. One of them even contains a golden ticket to see Coldplay perform in London, England.

Ghost Stories is out May 19.
