Coldplay’s new album Ghost Stories comes out very soon, and the band’s handlers must know that they’ll have to pull out all the promotional stops if that thing is going to outsell the Frozen soundtrack in its first week. So last night, just a few nights after the band performed on Saturday Night Live, they did musical-guest duties on The Tonight Show. On the show proper, they played the lovely single “Magic,” and they also did the album track “Always In My Head” as an online bonus. On both songs, they sounded as warm and confident as ever, and their new stars-dangling-everywhere stage set sure beats the fuck out of those pseudo-military uniforms they were wearing circa-Viva La Vida. Watch both performances below.
