Top-40 radio stations have undoubtedly been waiting on the edge of their seats for a new, intensely catchy Coldplay single to expel into overplay oblivion. After hearing the collection of slow-paced and doleful singles off the band's forthcoming LP Ghost Stories, Chris Martin and co. finally unloaded this summer's "Viva La Vida" equivalent, "A Sky Full of Stars". As if Coldplay's pop chart dominance wasn't enough on its own, this new song was produced by earworm aficionado Avicii. So when you're ready to stop tapping your foot to "Wake Me Up", try this fist-pumpy piano ballad on for size. Good luck!
Ghost Stories is due out May 19th.
