Coldplay will release its sixth album, Ghost Stories, next week, but you can listen to the full album online now. Judging from the first releases, the album seems like a mixed bag, from the iffy Bon Iver imitation “Midnight” to its considerably improved follow-up, “Magic.” Ghost Stories features production from Avicii and Timbaland as well as vocals from Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter, Apple.
