Muse has been documenting their ongoing recording process via their social media accounts, sending Musers into a frenzy with teasers. Today, we finally get word that the band is set to return with a brand new studio album that serves as the follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law.
Drones, spans over 12 tracks and is set for release June 9th via Warner Bros. Records.
A teaser track of Psycho is scheduled to hit online tomorrow, March 12th, while the official lead single Dead Inside hits March 23rd.
Says frontman Matt Bellamy of the new album, “To me, ‘Drones’ are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behavior with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. Drones explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors.”
The Drones Track List
1. “Dead Inside”
2. “[Drill Sergeant]”
