by | Jun 2, 2022 | Rock/Media/News, Sound/Vision

The mighty Muse have released the title track from their forthcoming ninth studio album Will Of The People. And in usual Muse style, expect to be surprised by the divisive tonal shift. Will Of the People marks the third cut from the forthcoming album of the same name which drops on 26th August.

Says frontman Matt Bellamy of the new record: “[It is a] fictional story set in a fictional metaverse on a fictional planet ruled by a fictional authoritarian state run by a fictional algorithm manifested by a fictional data centre running a fictional bank printing a fictional currency controlling a fictional population occupying a fictional city containing a fictional apartment where a fictional man woke up one day and thought ‘fuck this’”.

Muse recently completed a series of intimate shows (read: ~5,000 capacity venues) across the UK and North America including two stops at London’s Hammersmith Apollo where they have been airing cuts from the new record. Of the run, the band said: “We had such a good time at our recent charity shows at the Apollo in London last month we wanted to play some of these types of smaller theatres that we hadn’t played for a long time in the U.S and Europe before we head out on tour in 2023”.
