Coldplay appeared on this week's Andrew Garfield-hosted SNL to play a couple tracks from their upcoming new album, Ghost Stories.
"Magic" - Coldplay on Saturday Night Live 5/3/2014:
The band kicked things off with a performance of "Magic," the new record's lead single. The track is a slow-building crescendo backed by pulsing electronic drum sounds. They added layers until Chris Martin pulled the acoustic guitar from behind his back for the song's last minute.
They followed "Magic" up with their recent Avicii-assisted single, "A Sky Full Of Stars." The high-energy EDM beat saw Martin drop the guitar in favor of some goofy, exuberant dancing. Check out the videos above and below.
