Ghost Stories

Coldplay debuted the gorgeously floating Ghost Stories opening track “Always In My Head” at SXSW, but that footage was removed from the internet. Now the studio version of the song has emerged. Chris Martin stopped by Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show to debut the recording last night. Martin also discussed how the teachings of Sufism, a mystic branch of Islam, informed his writing on this album. Below, listen to a radio rip.
