Muse has released a new song called “Will of the People,” the title track off the band’s upcoming album.
“‘Will of the People’ 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 center 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 ‘f*** this,'” says frontman Matt Bellamy.
Somehow, we think the inspiration for “Will of the People” isn’t entirely fictional.
You can listen to “Will of the People” now via digital outlets. Its accompanying video, which very much lays out the scenario Bellamy describes, is streaming now on YouTube.
The album Will of the People arrives August 26. It also includes the previously released songs “Won’t Stand Down” and “Compliance.”
In other news, Muse has announced a limited run of North American tour dates, making stops in Los Angeles on October 4, Chicago on October 11, Toronto on October 14 and New York City on October 16.
