Muse have released their new song “Will of The People”, the third track to be taken from their forthcoming album of the same name, out August 26th via Warner Records. The new song follows previous singles, “Compliance” and “Won’t Stand Down” and showcases the band’s prowess for storytelling and sonic-scene-creation.
The band also shared the accompanying video directed by award winning animator and producer Tom Teller. The video can be seen now below.
“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,” says Matt Bellamy.
