Muse drop futuristic video for new song 'Something Human'
Muse have released a futuristic video for new song 'Something Human,' from their upcoming album which is due out in November.
The video is based on the Tyler Posey-starring supernatural drama series Teen Wolf and shows frontman Matt Bellamy outrun the cops, as he's chased in a car by drummer Dominic Howard and bass guitarist Chris Wolstenholme, whilst belting out the lyrics: “The big picture’s gone/ Replaced with visions of you/ Now life can begin/ I’ve cleansed all my sins/ I’m about to break through.”
Bellamy said: “Life on the road can bring out your inner beast, this song and video is about taming that beast, desiring a return to something human. Plus, 'Teen Wolf' is cool.”
Lance Drake, who also directed the band’s video for 'Dig Down', helmed the promo.
He added: “Our aim with 'Something Human' was to continue the journey that began in 'Dig Down' and 'Thought Contagion’. Pulling further into a simulated world we follow Matt, Dom, and Chris on the chase of a lifetime - where something as simple as returning some video tapes becomes an epic journey."
The band have been working on a long-awaited follow-up to 2015's 'Drones'.
Speaking in a video posted on the band's Twitter account earlier this year, they said: "So our plans for 2018 is to make a few songs, probably a new album as well, put out a couple of singles, and we'll do like five or six shows...
"Some big festivals in the US that we've never done before."
Bellamy had previously said the group are only performing a limited number of gigs this year because they're concentrating on their new album. He said: "We're not touring yet for a while, we're only doing like four shows this year to keep ourselves energised whilst making the album, but they're not in the UK unfortunately, they're in other places.
"Next year we're gonna come to the UK. We've got some cool, crazy ideas."
Meanwhile, the musician said they've been experimenting with some "cutting edge" technology to pull off an impressive production for their next tour.
He said: “We’re going to come up with something that no one’s ever seen before. We’re always interested in the latest technology and what’s cutting edge.
"And we found something and we’re going to use that.”
