Surprise! Just as the 86th Academy Awards were wrapping up and most people with common sense were heading to bed (or were already there), Coldplay‘s new album Ghost Stories was made available on iTunes to pre-order. Nine tracks make up the LP, including the experimental “Midnight,” the video for which premiered last week, and new single “Magic,” available as a download when you pre-order the album.

Ghost Stories has a May 19 release date. The album marks Coldplay’s sixth studio set to-date, and their first since 2011’s Grammy-nominated Mylo Xyloto.
