WATCH: Coldplay’s New Music Video ‘Magic,’ Starring Zhang Ziyi

Coldplay fans, and fans of gorgeous Chinese actor Zhang Ziyi, get a double dose of satisfaction with the release of Magic, the British rock band’s new music video.

The video is shot like a silent film, under the direction of Jonas Akerlund. Zhang plays Cecile, a glamorous magician’s assistant, and Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin plays two parts—one is Cecil’s famous magician husband, the other is her love-struck assistant.

Magic, a classic Coldplay-style love song, is the first single from their new album Ghost Stories, due to hit the shelves on May 19.
