Coldplay may have gone on a touring hiatus, but that didn't mean that the band stopped making music.

On Monday morning, frontman Chris Martin sent along a a photo (which was posted to the group's official Facebook page), showing off a 9-song track listing for the May 19th to-be-released "Ghost Stories." It also showcased the lyrics for the album's first single, "Magic."

The news was accompanied by a new audio YouTube post of "Magic" (below), which came out on Sunday. Fans who pre-order "Ghost Stories" on iTunes (it's the group's first album since 2011), will automatically get an early download of the track.

No announcement on when the group will resume touring yet, but if you're interested in checking them out live sooner rather than later, head to SXSW in Austin on March 11 -- they're headlining the festival.
