Ghost Story clip previewed & Ink set to be promo single


Happy Halloween Coldplayers! The band have given us a proper treat on the spookiest of days. Ghost Story, a fan favourite from the deluxe version of Ghost Stories and the A Sky Full Of Stars EP will (rather surprisngly) have an official video accompanying the song as we found out with the announcement of Ghost Stories Live 2014. The 1 minute and 19 seconds preview is the perfect advertiser for the upcoming live boxset.

The clip features Jonny, Guy, Chris and Will within a room/studio, jamming away, absorbed within the music, really showing the chemistry of the band. A little bit of headbanging from Mr Berryman doesn’t go amiss either! The influences of the A Rush Of Blood To The Head era are evident, in both the song and video but still keeping with the theme of their latest album, underneath the stars hanging from the roof, an integral part of their current stage setup.

What do you think of the video so far then? The comments across the social networks have been very positive. Mike Duffey on Facebook simply said, “Best song on the album” and Oscar Villasenor stated “Brilliant. Love it!”.

ChrissyBliss loved the video clip too and Melissa/GreenGoose thought it was the perfect teaser!

Please rate the music video out of 10 so far. I wouldn’t imagine the full video would differ too much from the preview clip!

Ink – Live 2014 Promo Single

No official announcement as of yet but BBC Radio 1 have revealed that Coldplay’s third track off Ghost Stories, Ink will be added to their ‘C list’ playlist as of next Monday. The re-affirms that the catchy and upbeat song will be supporting the release of Ghost Stories Live 2014 DVD/CD/Blu-Ray.

A release of an official music video for Ink is unlikely but it would seem Ink (Live From the Royal Albert Hall) may be released at some point on the official Coldplay Youtube channel since it features on the upcoming DVD. All in all, it’s a promo single so far which has been released to radio stations in the US, now the UK, reminiscent of The Hardest Part in early 2006, which ended up being a radio only single.
