2 min read

On June 5th (AUS), June 8th (UK) and June 9th (US) Muse will release their new album Drones. Co-produced by Muse and Robert John “Mutt” Lange, the album contains 12 tracks.

Matt Bellamy said today, “To me, ‘Drones’ are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. This album 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.”

Muse DronesThe first single from the album, Dead Inside, will debut the week of March 23, 2015. The band will premiere the album track Psycho, via their YouTube channel. The song will be available worldwide immediately when pre-ordering the album Drones that same day.
