Today, MUSE released the FIRST single off their 7th record, Drones called ‘Dead Inside’.
The band also released the song Psycho as gift for fans who pre-ordered the album.
From frontman Matt Bellamy:
“This is where the story of the album begins, where the protagonist loses hope and becomes ‘Dead Inside’, therefore vulnerable to the dark forces introduced in ‘Psycho’ and which ensue over the next few songs on the album, before eventually defecting, revolting and overcoming these dark forces later in the story…”
Mutt Lange produced the album (friendly reminder, the legend behind albums like AC/DC’s Back in Black and Def Leppard‘s Hysteria).
We have a concept album on our hands. Drones is out June 8th, 2015.
