Coldplay Debut New Song 'Oceans' and Confirm Headline Appearance at Radio 1's Big Weekend
Coldplay have been confirmed as headliners at Radio 1's Big Weekend.

The free event takes place at Glasgow Green on May 24 and 25, and Coldplay will perform on the Saturday (May 24).

AsĀ NME notes, making the announcement on Radio 1 this morning, Chris Martin said: "We're very thrilled to be asked, thank you so much ... We're all pleased to be here, I speak for everyone when I say that." The band also debuted new song "Oceans" during a live performance. See below to watch footage of the performance now.

Talking about the news, Will Champion, Coldplay's drummer said: "We are absolutely thrilled to have been asked to play Radio 1's Big Weekend in Glasgow this year. Playing in Glasgow is always so much fun and Radio 1 have always been wonderful to us so it couldn't really be any better!"

Coldplay's forthcoming album "Ghost Stories" sees the band working with producer Paul Epworth for the first time, plus revisiting regular collaborators Jon Hopkins, Rik Simpson and Dan Green. Epworth produced much of Adele's hugely successful album "21" and has also worked with Paul McCartney, Friendly Fires and Florence + the Machine.
