Coldplay's tracks have received their fair share of EDM remixes, but on their second single, "A Sky Full of Stars," the band goes full-on house on their own accord. Teaming up with none other than hit-maker Avicii, the band's new song will, for the first time in history, have club-goers saying, "I really hope they play that Coldplay song!"

The band also announced a scavenger hunt -- lyrics from the upcoming "Ghost Stories" handwritten by Chris Martin having been hidden in ghost story books in nine libraries across the world. One set of lyrics even contains a "Golden Ticket" for a free trip to see Coldplay at Royal Albert Hall on July 1. The band is tweeting out clues to the locations of the enveloped lyrics, using the hashtag #lyricshunt. (Some of the lyrics have already been found, including the one with the Golden Ticket.)

"Ghost Stories" comes out on May 19. Listen to "A Sky Full of Stars" below.
