Muse releases 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 and the latter described by NME as “an utterly classic tune. “Will of the People” is 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.
“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.
