MUSE RELEASE BRAND NEW SONG ‘WILL OF THE PEOPLE’

June 1st 2022 Grammy Award-winning rock band Muse release their newest song ‘Will of The People’. This is the third song from their forthcoming album of the same name, set for release on August 26th via Warner Records. Earlier in the year the band released Compliance and Won’t Stand Down, both racking up critical acclaim with the latter being described by the NME as “an utterly classic tune.” ‘Will of the People’ was produced by Muse and mixed by Serban Ghenea and is an electric anthem that showcases the band’s prowess for storytelling and sonic scene creation.

 

Today the band also shared the accompanying video directed by award winning animator and producer Tom Teller.

 

Matt Bellamy says, “‘Will of the People’ is 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.’”

 

In further exciting news for fans, Muse are slated to perform a special limited amount of theatre shows in October:
