Coldplay unveiled two previously unheard songs from May 19 album Ghost Stories last night at South By Southwest. The band's set during the first-ever iTunes Festival at SXSW was streaming live online. Video is still available at press time of the band performing album opener "Always in My Head" (above), and below you can find audio of "Another's Arms." If these get taken down or proper video of "Another's Arms" emerges, we'll keep you updated as we find working clips. In the meantime, both songs find the U.K. band in their restrained — our own Philip Sherburne even used the phrase "Balearic" — mode that characterized other songs from the follow-up to 2011's Mylo Xyloto.
