Muse has another new song on the way.

The track, titled “Compliance,” will arrive next Thursday, March 17, and is available to pre-save now. It follows the single “Won’t Stand Down,” which dropped in January.

In a tweet announcing the new tune, Muse says, “Compliance is about the promise of safety and reassurance to us by powerful entities during times of vulnerability.”

“Gangs, governments, demagogues, social media algorithms and religions seduce us with misleading untruths and comforting fables,” the band continues. They want us to join their narrow worldview in exchange for obedience and turning a blind eye to our own internal voice of reason and compassion. They just need our Compliance.”

The “Compliance” news follows a teaser video released earlier this week, which features a group of masked soldiers in a desert tearing down giant statues of the three Muse band members while a chorus chants the line, “The will of the people.”

“Compliance” and “Won’t Stand Down” follow Muse’s most recent album, 2018’s Simulation Theory.
