Coldplay drops old-timey video for new single 'Magic'

Posted on

Watch out, David Blaine: There’s a new magician in town, and his name is Chris Martin.

In Coldplay’s new silent-film-style video for “Magic,” the first single from their upcoming album Ghost Stories, Martin plays both a douchey illusionist in a traveling circus and the illusionist’s assistant, who has a crush on his boss’ wife. But it’s not just all Martins; actress Ziyi Zhang of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame plays the clip’s leading lady.

Watch the new video below:
