Coldplay might be hard at work on their final album, but they made some time to record a song for Angelina Jolie.

The band dropped their new song, “Miracles,” which is featured in Jolie’s second directorial project Unbroken. 

The film focuses on the life of Olympic athlete Louis “Louie” Zamperini, who becomes a World War II hero, survives a plane crash in the Pacific, spends 47 days at sea on a raft and then more than two and a half years living in several Japanese prisoner camps.

With a sweetly strummed guitar, a twinkling piano and a lot of snapping, this song sounds triumphant and as varied as the film itself. It also sounds ready for its Oscar moment.

Frontman Chris Martin sings about angels that talk to him, lightning strikes and floating above the world. It’s all pretty magical.

According to the band, the song will be available on iTunes this Monday, Dec. 15.

Unbroken hits theaters this Christmas.
